While speaking with evangelical pastors in New York City this morning, Donald Trump went after Hillary Clinton’s religious beliefs.
Trump, who has in the past perpetuated the myth that President Obama is a Muslim, is now questioning Clinton’s faith as well.
“We don’t know anything about Hillary in terms of religion,” Trump said. “Now, she’s been in the public eye for years and years, and yet there’s nothing out there.”
In fact, there is plenty out there about Clinton’s religion. She is a devoted Methodist and has appeared at several Christian events throughout the campaign season including a visit to the United Methodist Women Assembly in April and the Canaan Christian Church in May.
Clinton explained to an Iowa voter in January, “My study of the Bible, my many conversations with people of faith, has led me to believe the most important commandment is to love the Lord with all your might and to love your neighbor as yourself, and that is what I think we are commanded by Christ to do, and there is so much more in the Bible about taking care of the poor, visiting the prisoners, taking in the stranger, creating opportunities for others to be lifted up, to find faith themselves that I think there are many different ways of exercising your faith.”
