While talking with Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), CNN have Erin Burnett endeavored to mix up contention over a current remark President Donald Trump made about his confidence. Gowdy immediately educated Burnett about the Constitution and religion.
“You’ve heard me say it before on the campaign trail,” Trump said in a rally this week, “and I’ll say it again tonight. In America, we don’t worship government, we worship God.”
“Now conservative Bill Kristol, you know him,” Burnett stated, as per The Blaze, “he’s been critical of the president before, but on this he tweets, ‘In America the president doesn’t tell us who or what or whether to worship.'”
“Who do you agree with, Bill Kristol or the president who just came out and definitively said in America we worship God?” she inquired.

“What about decision “C,” our establishing fathers,” Gowdy let go back, “who gave us a First Amendment which is a free exercise right yet in addition a flexibility to have no religion if that is the thing that we need.”
“How about choice ‘C,’ our founding fathers,” Gowdy fired back, “who gave us a First Amendment which is a free exercise right but also a freedom to have no religion if that’s what we want.”
There is no established religion in this country, that’s why we have an Establishment Clause,” he finished up. “The president is welcome to share his faith, it’s been done by other presidents. Jimmy Carter did it, John F. Kennedy did it.”
This isn’t the first run through Burnett has been reproachful of Trump’s Christianity. She already communicated stun at Christians asking with the president and playing out a “laying on of the hands” custom, as though this was something strange.
