Trump Claims Biden Will ‘Hurt the Bible, Hurt God’
President Donald Trump made a bizarre attack on former Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday. Speaking in Ohio, Trump claimed Biden was opposed to religion and that his election wold hurt the Holy Bible and even God Almighty Himself.
Trump said Biden wanted to “take away your guns, destroy your second amendment, no religion, no anything. Hurt the bible, hurt God. He’s against God, he’s against guns.”
The President premiered this new attack earlier on Thursday during an interview on Geraldo Rivera’s radio show.
“He’s against the Bible,” Trump said, though he faced immediate push back from Rivera, who called the comments ‘harsh.’
Nonetheless, a few hours later Trump was reiterating the claim that Biden was somehow anti-religious, this time with greater force. The presumptive Democratic nominee has already responded to Trump’s attack, calling it ‘shameful’.
“Like so many people, my faith has been the bedrock foundation of my life: it’s provided me comfort in moments of loss and tragedy, it’s kept me grounded and humbled in times of triumph and joy. And in this moment of darkness for our country — of pain, of division, and of sickness for so many Americans — my faith has been a guiding light for me and a constant reminder of the fundamental dignity and humanity that God has bestowed upon all of us,” Biden said.
“For President Trump to attack my faith is shameful. It’s beneath the office he holds and it’s beneath the dignity the American people so rightly expect and deserve from their leaders,” he said.
