Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claims Trump 'holds that Bible like it’s burning him'

Celebrity Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) attacked President Donald Trump's unprecedented Monday visit to St. John’s Church, claiming he "holds that Bible like it’s burning him."

In a historic moment following a Rose Garden press conference, President Trump walked out of the White House and across the street to visit the famous church - a move that has never been done by a president before.

Trump visited the 200-year-old St. John’s Church after it was attacked and vandalized by rioters on Sunday before it was set ablaze.

The president stood in front of the desecrated building and held up a Bible, telling members of the press, “We have a great country, the greatest country in the world.”

The move came just minutes after President Trump gave a speech from the White House about George Floyd’s death and the resulting riots taking place across the country.

Mr. Floyd died while in police custody following a brutal arrest where an officer knelt on his neck for over five minutes while he was handcuffed and on the ground.

Late Monday, AOC responded to the president's actions by seemingly mocking him by questioning his religious beliefs.

"He holds that Bible like it’s burning him," the New York socialist said on Twitter.

While visiting St. John’s Church across Lafayette Square, one day after rioters set ablaze the landmark building’s basement, President Trump vowed to protect the country.

“We have the greatest country in the world,” he said“We’re going to keep it safe.”

President Trump declared he was mobilizing all federal resources in response to protests over the police-involved killing of George Floyd.

He also encouraged all governors to deploy the National Guard in their states.

President Trump called on mayors and governors to establish an “overwhelming law enforcement presence.”

He said he will also deploy the United States military if state and local governments do not “take the action necessary to defend the life and property of their residents.”

“My first and highest duty as president is to defend our great country and the American people,” he declared.

“I swore an oath to uphold the laws of our nation and that is exactly what I will do.”

In order to activate the military to operate in the United States, Trump would have to invoke the Insurrection Act of 1807.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany had earlier described the move as “one of the tools available” to the president.
