‘The god of under par’: Trump critics wonder why he went golfing instead of going to church after deeming them ‘essential’

- Commentary

President Donald Trump proclaimed that all houses of worship were “essential” and must open whether they wanted to or not. While Americans had a choice of whether to attend services at their church, Trump maintained that “it’s not right” to have churches be closed.

“So I’m correcting this injustice and calling houses of worship essential,” he said during a statement at the White House. “I call upon governors to allow our churches and places of worship to open right now. If there’s any question, they’re going to have to call me, but they’re not going to be successful in that call. The governors need to do the right thing and allow these very important essential places of faith to open right now, for this weekend. If they don’t do it, I will override the governors. In America we need more prayer, not less.”

He then left without taking any questions.

While Trump explained that churches were so important, they weren’t important enough for him to attend services on Sunday. Instead, he went to worship on the links, praying to the god of “under par” at the Trump National Golf Club in Virginia.

“In America we need more prayer, not less,” Trump said on Friday. It’s unclear if the golf course is the place where he prays the most

It was something that didn’t go unnoticed from those asking where Trump would worship on Sunday.

Trump’s staff keeps undercutting his comments about his payroll tax plot: report

Published

on

President Donald Trump has claimed that everything will be fine with the removal of the payroll tax, which funds the Social Security trust fund, because he will just throw money in from the general fund. But according to Trump staff, he's confused.

The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that businesses aren't sure what to do because it would cause more difficulty on their side. The idea, however, isn't a law and it likely won't be enforced until Congress passes such a law, which isn't likely to happen since both sides oppose it.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dares Trump to compare grades — and says the ‘loser has to fund the Post Office’

Published

During an interview with Fox Business' Maria Bartiromo on Thursday, President Donald Trump took aim at Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), saying that she was a "poor student" at "I won't say where she went to school, it doesn't matter."

"This is not even a smart person," Trump added.

Ocasio-Cortez graduated cum laude from Boston University with a degree in political science and economics.

The attack had parallels to when Trump claimed in 2011, baselessly, that he had heard President Barack Obama had been a "terrible student" — even though Obama had run the Harvard Law Review.

Trump adviser Larry Kudlow: ‘We don’t want to have’ voting rights protections get through Congress

Published

on

On CNBC News Thursday, President Donald Trump's economic adviser Larry Kudlow said that the administration does not want protection of voting rights to pass as part of the coronavirus stimulus package.

"So much of the Democratic asks are really liberal left wishlists we don't want to have," said Kudlow. "Voting rights, and aid to aliens, and so forth. That's not our game."

Talks between Congress and the White House are currently at an impasse. The administration is refusing to support outlays greater than $1 trillion, and the president has explicitly demanded there be no funding for the Postal Service, to keep voting by mail as difficult as possible.
