Trump Cheers "Abolition of Civil Rights"
February 08, 2019
“I will never let you down.” That's how President Trump opened his remarks to faith leaders at the National Prayer Breakfast yesterday. Citing the power of prayer in the daily lives of many Americans, he also noted, quote: "When we open our hearts to faith, we fill our hearts with love."
Thing is, that’s not what’s making headlines. While Trump noted that “prayer can transform lives and heal communities” and noted that his administration has taken “historic actions to protect religious liberties,” he also made a serious gaffe…that he hasn’t corrected.
“Since the founding of our nation,” he said. “Many of our greatest strides, from gaining our independence to abolition of civil rights, to extending the vote for women, have been led by people of faith and started in prayer.” For those who don’t know, “abolition” is defined as “the action or an act of abolishing a system, practice, or institution.” It’s also most often used when referred to the movement to end slavery.
