'MAGA Nuns' Go Viral After Spotted in Trump's Rally Crowd
Three Catholic nuns attended Ohio rally with MAGA masks and Bible to support president
A group of Catholic nuns has gone viral across social media after the trio was spotted cheering on President Donald Trump at his Ohio campaign rally on Saturday.
The internet went wild after spotting the sisters, dubbed the "MAGA Nuns," wearing masks with the president's "Make America Great Again" logo while holding up a Bible.
Images and videos quickly went viral on social media, showing the pro-Trump nuns holding their Bible and praying while the president gave his speech in Circleville.
"This can’t be real," Twitter user Adam Parkhomenko commented while sharing an image of one of the nuns holding up a Bible just before Trump took to the podium.
Political activist Pamela Geller, a Trump supporter, tweeted: "The #MAGA nuns love Trump!"
Others on Twitter were convinced it was a sign the president was "holding up God's Word."
"They made sure that God was right behind our President, guiding him, protecting him," one person said.
"Btw, I have the same exact Bible, it's a scripture study bible," they added.
"Excellent for bible study."
"Gotta love the nuns with the MAGA masks behind Trump," agreed another Trump fan.
Trump's presidential rival Joe Biden claims to be a practicing Catholic who is leading in battleground states like Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
The "nuns" cheered along with the audience when Trump blasted the former vice president over his son, Hunter Biden's "Ukraine, crack, and sex" scandal.

The fact is you didn't do a good job Joe, you let us down." pic.twitter.com/0sK8kDf62l— Steve Guest (@SteveGuest) October 24, 2020
The president commented that it was "amazing the way God works" and got more applause when he said, "we will live by the timeless words of our national motto: In God we trust."
Trump, who was a Presbyterian, revealed that he now identifies as a non-denominational Christian, according to The Sun.
Speaking to the Religious News Service, Trump said: “Though I was confirmed at a Presbyterian church as a child, I now consider myself to be a non-denominational Christian."
He also credited God with his recovery from COVID-19:
“I said, ‘There were miracles coming down from heaven.’
"I meant it — Melania and I are very thankful to God for looking out for our family and returning us to good health,” he added.
In 2016, evangelicals helped Trump's triumphant win over Hillary Clinton and made up roughly a quarter of the electorate.
Around 81 percent of them voted for Trump, according to The Washington Post.
As well as Ohio, Trump also campaigned in North Carolina, Wisconsin, and Maryland after voting in West Palm Beach, Florida.
