Trump: Because Of Me, People Are Mentioning God More

According to the president, Americans weren't really saying "one nation under God" a few years ago - but they are now.

During his speech at Thursday’s National Day of Prayer festivities, President Trump took an opportunity to remind Americans that people are saying “Merry Christmas” again, thanks to him.

But this time, he added to his accomplishments that people are saying “one nation under God” more often as well.

Via New York Magazine:

Prayer “unites us all as one nation under God. So important,” he said. (“So important” being a common Trump tic to indicate he is encountering his own words for the first time and finds them important.) Then came the riff about “one nation under God”:

And we say it here, ya know? Lot of people, they don’t say it. But, you know what, they’re starting to say it more, just like we’re starting to say ‘Merry Christmas’ when that day comes around. You notice the big difference between now and two or three years ago, it was, all, it was going in the other direction rapidly, right? Now it’s [thrusting his hand vertically in the air] straight up.

There is no statistical data available to prove one way or the other that Americans were less inclined to utter these phrases two or three years ago, but that surely doesn’t stop the president from taking credit for the fact that people say both phrases today.

The really sickening thing is the way the Vangies speak of him as some sort of god...he is sent by god...it truly makesme want to spew. It's downright disturbing.

If saying "GD, mother-fer Trump" counts as mentioning God a lot more then it's true.

Trump says a lot of things without proof. His deceit is embarrassing. We deserve better.
