“Everything he has said and done is to inflame violence,” she fumed, referring to Trump’s photo opp in front of the church across from the White House.

“I am the bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington and was not given even a courtesy call, that they would be clearing [the area] with tear gas so they could use one of our churches as a prop,” Budde said.
In a written statement, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, doubled down, accusing Trump of using “a church building and the Holy Bible for partisan political purposes.”
