‘This Is Your Christian President’: Twitter Explodes Over This Video Of Presidents Reciting Prayer, Except Trump

The internet is calling out President Donald Trump for failing to recite the Apostles’ Creed at the funeral for former President George H. W. Bush on Wednesday.

Footage from the event shows much of the church, including the former presidents seated with Trump, standing to recite the profession of faith.

In addition to former Presidents Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, Vice President Mike Pence, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and former Vice President Al Gore can also be seen reading from the text of the prayer during the service.

Trump and first lady Melania Trump stood, but did not recite the prayer, which was written in the program, nor did they sing the hymns.

Given Trump’s widespread support among evangelical Christians, that led to plenty of criticism on social media:

“This is your ‘Christian’ evangelical president,” Boykin wrote sarcastically in response to Trump’s actions.
