In a desperately transparent attempt to hold on to his one 'ride or die' constituency -- White Evangelicals -- Trump babbles something something Bible literacy classes. Yeah.
January 28, 2019

Above: Who could forget Trump at Liberty University, January 2016, spouting how great "Two Corinthians" is.

And look who's desperate to hang on to his White Evangelical poll numbers!

Oh wait, he's just live-tweeting Fox and Friends from the toilet.

Politico:

...Trump on Monday cheered on the controversial push to introduce Bible literacy classes to public schools.

Trump’s tweet came half an hour after Fox News’s “Fox & Friends" aired a segment on the subject, though his tweet is not quite accurate.

A handful of states are making pushes to introduce elective courses in schools that lawmakers say would teach the Bible in terms of its historical context, and though none have passed, critics have pointed out that such bills could blur the constitutional line separating church and state.
