The Republican National Convention began on Monday with a prayer thanking God for President Donald Trump.

“I am a Catholic Donald Trump Republican,” Vermont Delegate Jay Shepard began. “And by the grace of God, an American, so let us pray.”

“Thank you, oh Lord, for all the gifts that you provide us,” he continued. “Not because we deserve them, but solely through your grace and mercy. Let us acknowledge the many gifts that God has bestowed upon us, starting with the president and vice president that reflect the values of our Founding Fathers and are willing to fight for those values, starting with life, knowing that all life is precious, from conception to natural death. There’s no choice but to fight for the unborn.”

Throughout the prayer, Shepard suggested that Democratic nominee Joe Biden is not “true” to his Catholic faith.

“Help us all follow President Trump,” Shepard prayed. “We know is he on the journey to you, Lord. Let us not be deceived by those that were once close to you, but have turned away in favor of embracing political ideology, yet claiming Catholic beliefs and words while their actions turn them away from you.”

“You have chosen us, oh Lord,” he added, “to make a difference in the world.”

Mark Becker, the former Chairman of the Brown County Republican Party, writes at The Bulwark that he had a conversation with Johnson after the election in which the senator acknowledged Trump's defeat.

However, Johnson said that he was loath to admit it publicly because of the strong support the president had received from Wisconsin GOP voters, despite the fact that the president narrowly lost the state this year.

Donald Trump PAC has pocketed most of the cash he bilked from his supporters to fund election lawsuits: report

Published

President Donald Trump has raised about $170 million from his aggressive fundraising campaign ostensibly aimed at fueling his baseless election challenges, but the majority of the money is actually going to the new political action committee he set up after the election, according to The New York Times.

Trump has bombarded supporters with appeals for cash as he wages a fruitless legal campaign to challenge the results of an election he lost by more than 6 million votes. But the president's attorneys have failed to back up his allegations of fraud and irregularities with any actual evidence.
