On Thursday (Aug. 6), after Joe Biden had spent the morning addressing a meeting of the leaders of the Progressive National Baptist Convention, a predominantly Black denomination, President Trump used part of a press conference to make wild assertions about the former vice president's approach to faith. If Biden were to become president, Trump said, there would be “no religion, no anything.” He claimed Biden would “hurt the Bible” and “hurt God.” Trump asserted that Biden was “against God.” As a White House staffer, I had the opportunity to see Vice President Biden up close. Trump’s assertions could not be more wrong.
