President Donald Trump says he won’t use a quotation in his speech at the National Prayer Breakfast because he “didn’t want to sound like a big religious nut.”
Here are some tips to spot the difference.
“I didn’t want [to sound like] a big religion nut,” he said in a speech at CPAC on Friday.
“But I wanted to use my voice and speak about things that matter to the American people.”
“I’m not going to use a quote that I think is taken out of context or is a personal attack on anyone,” he added.
“It just didn’t work for me.”
But Trump has said he wants to use the word “God” in his address, and he did use a word he said during the speech, “God bless America.”
But he added that he would not use the phrase, “I want to thank you for this beautiful flag.”
Here is a list of quotes from Trump that have been attributed to him.
“We cannot afford to let people be bullied by a false and dangerous ideology.
The American people will not be bullied.
They will not tolerate it.
They are our most cherished liberties and will not bow to it.”
“America is not a nation of cowards.
Our values are not a matter of cowardice.
Our spirit is strong and our destiny is bright.
We will never stop believing that America is stronger together.
The future belongs to the people of the United States of America.”
“We have come a long way from the day of slavery.
America is an exceptional nation.
We are the greatest nation on earth.
We have been blessed with many wonderful things.
We can achieve even more greatness in the years to come.
America will be the greatest power in the world for generations to come.”
“Our destiny is intertwined with the future of our children and grandchildren.
We must work together to create a better future for our children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.”
“God has given us a very clear vision of our nation and its destiny.
America has a long history of fighting for its people, but today, we must fight for the rights and freedoms of all people, no matter their race, creed, or political affiliation. “

We stand with the American flag, as a symbol of our country’s pride in its freedom. “
And let us never forget, God is great and all men are created equal.
