WATCH: Pelosi reveals that she asked Trump to pray for ‘wisdom’ — and schooled him on the Bible

Published

on

Democratic House Leader Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday revealed to reporters that she schooled President Donald Trump about the Bible in a behind-closed-doors meeting.

After the tumultuous meeting between Pelosi, Trump and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, Pelosi told reporters on Capitol Hill that she had wanted to start off the meeting with a prayer.

“I told [Trump] about King Solomon, when he was to become king of the Jews, he prayed to God, he said, ‘How can I ever follow King David?'” she said. “‘I need you to give me great understanding and wisdom, Lord.’ And after he prayed and prayed and prayed, God came to him and said, ‘Solomon, because you did not ask for longevity, great wealth, or vengeance against your enemies, I will give you more wisdom than anyone has ever had.'”

Pelosi then said that she hoped that message would guide all parties as they negotiated keeping the government open.

“It had everything to do with [letting] us be prayerful, listen to each other and have an understanding of where people are coming from,” she said.

She then pivoted to saying that the president seems “obsessed” with his border wall, while pointing out that it would be wrong to shut down the government over funding it.

Why, according to polls, did they essentially decide overnight that it's no longer important for a president to have strong personal morals to be an effective leader?

Published

During an appearance on CNN's "New Day" -- along with fellow Republican Charlie Dent (PA) -- ex-Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) received a lecture from host John Berman on why Donald Trump's tweets and attacks on four Democratic lawmakers were racist.

While Dent revealed that down-ticket Republicans running for re-election in 2020 are "terrified" that Trump's descent into overt racism as a campaign strategy may kill their chances of holding their seats, Santorum said he was disgusted with the whole spectacle while saying he didn't see the attacks as racist.

Asked about the president's attacks, Santorum tried to brush them away and blame the recipients of Trump's ire.
