Weaponized Twitter: Trump insults secular Americans and attacks the separation of church and state while pandering to his conservative Christian base.
In an obnoxious, anti-American tweet sent earlier today President Donald Trump claims “we don’t worship government, we worship God.”
IN AMERICA WE DON’T WORSHIP GOVERNMENT – WE WORSHIP GOD! https://t.co/jIejSgVnnA

So much for religious freedom…
Recall: Freedom of religion includes freedom from religion.
Trump has been on a Twitter rampage today. In an act of cruel bigotry, earlier today Trump announced that transgender individuals will not be allowed to serve in the military “in any capacity.”
Trump made the announcement via Twitter, stating:
After consultation with my generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military. Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail.
What a mess. What a disgrace.
Bottom line: Trump’s tweet is asinine. Nobody worships government. And not everybody worships a god.
