One of the two Muslim members of Congress, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), apparently has a problem with President Trump declaring a “National Day of Prayer” over Coronavirus.
Tlaib retweeted an angry statement from teenage anti-gun provocateur David Hogg–who had tweeted: “Don’t let this administration address COVID-19 like our national gun violence epidemic. F**k a National day of prayer, we need immediate comprehensive action.”
Hogg also linked to a clip of Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Dr. Ben Carson, who was speaking about the power of prayer.
“Now, President Trump is going to be recommending a National Day of Prayer. And, you know, we’ve gotten away from prayer and faith a lot in this country,” said Carson.
“There’s nothing wrong with godly principles no matter what your faith is,” Carson added. “Loving your neighbor, caring about the people around you, developing your God-given talents to the utmost so that you become valuable to the people around you, having values and principles that govern your life – those are things that made America zoom to the top of the world in record time.”
“And those are the things that will keep us there too.”
Tlaib did not supply a comment to go with her retweet.
President Trump’s National Day of Prayer was on Sunday, March 15.
