Trump Mentioned God 9 Times In His Thanksgiving Speech

    On Thursday, President Trump delivered his Thanksgiving message from Mar-a-Lago, where the first family spent their holiday.

    Trump, according to the Daily Caller’s count made no less than 9 mentions of God in his speech. He also mentioned “prayer” twice.

    “It’s an honor to speak with you all and to give God thanks for the blessing of freedom,” Trump said in his speech, which was addressed to U.S. troops across the world.

    The Daily Caller went back to count how many times former president Obama mentioned God in his 2016 Thanksgiving address. “In contrast,” the report noted, “President Obama mentioned ‘God’ only once and never once mentioned prayer.”
