DONALD Trump is under fire for slipping out of George H.W. Bush’s funeral before the casket left the cathedral.
The controversial US President has also been criticised for refusing to recite The Apostles’ Creed – one of Christianity’s core statements – during the ceremony.
According to reports, Trump and Melania left immediately following the proceedings inside the building, allowing them to avoid speaking with the Clintons and Obamas.
Photos also show Trump and Melania looking stone-faced and silent while the Clintons and Obamas next to them sing from the hymn sheet.
Political writer Keith Boykin wrote: “This is your ‘Christian’ evangelical president”
And John Ziegler sarcastically said: “It’s SO weird that Barack Obama (the “Muslim”) knew all the words to the Apostles’ Creed, and Donald Trump (the Evangelical hero) didn’t know any of them, and didn’t even bother to read them.”
