Trump Criticizes Pelosi and Romney for Using Religion to Justify Bad Decisions

President Trump used part of his time at the National Prayer Breakfast to criticize the use of religion by Nancy Pelosi and Mitt Romney during impeachment.

According to The Hill:

President Trump on Thursday swiped at Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) for invoking religion during the impeachment proceedings while speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast.


“Weeks ago, and again yesterday, courageous Republican politicians and leaders had the wisdom, fortitude and strength to do what everyone knows was right,” Trump said. “I don’t like people who use their faith as justification for doing what they know is wrong. Nor do I like people who say ‘I pray for you’ when they know that’s not so.”

Trump opened his remarks at the event by railing against the recently concluded impeachment process, taking an unmistakable jab at Romney, who voted to convict Trump one impeachment charge, and Pelosi, who was seated just a few feet away. When he entered the room, Trump held up newspapers emblazoned with headlines announcing his acquittal.

Romney voted on Wednesday convict Trump for abuse of power, and Pelosi, one of the president’s chief foils, launched the impeachment inquiry in September.

The comments upset Speaker Pelosi who lashed out at the President during her weekly press conference.

Thank GOD for the Senate stopping that farce the demonrats started.
pelosi and her minions, nadler, schiff-face, and all the others, fakes, corrupted to the core, killers at heart, liars, worthless,( what have they done for the public in the last 3 years?????), have received their well-deserved slap in the face.
But, as usual, pelosi and her henchmen will not learn from their STUPIDITY. They will continue to fan the fire of hate that burns their minds, their black hearts, their useless actions.

Tbank you President Trump. We have tried but we can no longer tolerate the far left and the Democrats. Far left and Democrats take advantage, they are not rational, not honest, not trustworthy, not fair and not in favor of human decency or America. The hypocrisy has become sickening.

Let’s treat these people like they deserve to be treated. IMO, far left and the Democrats are enemies of humanity and America. Just as we can not fight traditional war when the other side adopts gorilla tactics, we can no longer be the bigger person.. or they will continue to take advantage and take advantage of the ignorant and the less fortunate to achieve their goals.

Democrats are Anti Semitic and Fascistic…
The Democrat party and its members have loss all honor and respect for themselves and America.
The Democrats & leftists are going after our weakest supporters! Precisely, how the Nazi’s started and succeeded, simply by imprisoning and murdering the disabled and mentally ill.
If you don’t stop them immediately with extreme prejudice. They will win just as the Nazis did. Leading to a Nazi style Government. (Nazi’s were leftist’s they came from National Socialist German Workers’ Party)
Do the Democrats want to start opening concentration camps again?

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
The UN….
First they came after Israel, and I did not speak out.
Then they came after America….
democrats are working with and for the Muslim Brotherhood a Terrorist controlling group. Why are you not using Citizen Arrest on them to put them all in prison…?

halom, The more I share the more I am attacked by the web and anti semitic Sebastopol, CA., Jews. So please help me get home to Israel to help strengthen Israel with the Israel Longhorn Project. It has been reported Israel has ISIS on it border and there is now close to 2 million poor Israeli, or 800,000 Israeli families or 500,000 Israeli children. We will repair the desert soil so more water and bad air or Co2 go into the soil and more healthy good air O2 comes out with the new grass. So it is very important that we “strengthen Israel with the Israel Longhorn Project” at

They hide behind “freedom of speech”, but will deny that same freedom to anyone who disagrees with them. —

Pelosi should be removed as Speaker 9f the House. She destroyed a Government Document and that’s against the Law and policies. Escort her out of the building. She isn’t above the LAW! TAKE SCHIFF, NADLER, SCHUMMER AND ROMNEY and send them with her. None of them belong in our Capital.

I agree with President Trump…….using religion to justify wrong and horrid decisions is deplorable. I do honestly believe there are precious few democrats who know squat about religion….they have some of the sourest attitudes I have ever seen or heard. I do not believe most democrats have any sense of religion anyway. Why? Because it gets in their way to lie, steal, and hate others. Most who comment insist that God does not exist and they insult those who DO believe in God.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
