Dems ‘Find God’ in Iowa

Trump questions their ‘faith’

As the Feb. 3 Iowa caucus approaches, Democratic candidates are suddenly talking about God. Hoping to attract religious voters on the Iowa trail, they're invoking the Bible and meeting with religious leaders.

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren used the Bible to argue that banks in the 1980s exploited average people, saying, "Bankruptcy is provided (for) in the Bible. Every seven years debts are forgiven."

South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg used Scripture when alluding to illegal immigrants, urging voters to "[c]oncern ourselves with the poor. Identify with the prisoner. Welcome the stranger and love our neighbor." 

Critics say former Vice President Joe Biden pandered to an historically African American church in Des Moines.  

At the Corinthian Baptist Church on Sunday, parishioners prayed over Biden for five minutes.

But President Trump is accusing the Dems of being anti-religious.

At the launch of the "Evangelicals for Trump" campaign in Florida on Friday, the president said, "Our opponents want to shut out God from the public square so they can impose their extreme anti-religious and socialist agenda on America."

Trump singled out Buttigieg, mocking the Democrat's sudden appeal to faith.

With so many religious votes at stake, it's unlikely the "God talk" will stop anytime soon.
