Supporters ‘Appalled’ that Trump Took ‘God’s Name in Vain’ at Rally

Some supporters of President Trump – including a prominent West Virginia state representative – are expressing disappointment that he used God’s name in vain twice during a campaign rally Wednesday.

His speech in front of a large crowd in Greenville, N.C., was televised on cable networks and came the same week the media spotlighted his “go back” remarks about Democratic congresswomen.

In fact, the crowd’s “send her back” comments about a Minnesota representative dominated media coverage about the rally. But some Christian supporters of Trump were focused on his coarse language.

Recounting a conversation with a businessman, Trump said he told him, “‘If you don’t support me, you are going to be so God—n poor, you are not going to believe it,’” Trump said. He used the word a second time in reference to the U.S. military and Iran.

Paul Hardesty, a West Virginia Democrat state representative who backed Trump in 2016 and said he still supports him, wrote Trump and urged him to stop using God’s name in vain.

“I am… appalled by the fact that you chose to use the Lord’s name in vain on two separate occasions, when you went off the prompter during your speech,” he wrote in the letter. “There is NO place in society — anywhere, any place and at any time — where that type of language should be used or handled. Your comments were not presidential.”

Hardesty continued, “I would respectfully ask that you examine yourself, reflect on your comments, and never utter those words again. Please remember Mr. President, in the United States of America, ‘In God We Trust,’ not curse.”

The Charlotte Observer was the first outlet to report on Hardesty’s comments.

Social media was filled with Trump supporters expressing frustration over the president’s language.

“I support him, but he curses God’s name, then says God bless the USA. Heartbreaking!” supporter Nancy Riddle wrote on twitter.

The Good News


Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don’t have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.




  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
