    I don't think he was trying ro impress evangelicals, as evangelicals are already impressed with him, as you've lamented about incessantly on this board. The act is so bizarre and pointless in any political sense in a situation like this, that I suspect there's something else to it.

    That's the frothing-at-the-mouth liberal narrative at least. Is there any official confirmation?

    I doubt it. The people who already hate Trump still hate him. The rest of us don't care.

    Longtime Donald Trump aide Hope Hicks has been identified as having helped hatch the plan to have the president walk across the street from the White House to pose in front of St. John's church – staged event that police and National Guard forces facilitated by using tear gas and rubber bullets to clear away peaceful protesters.

    The move was conceived as a way to allow Trump to demonstrate his self-proclaimed role as the 'law and order president' and – came after the president vowed to use the military to restore order in cities across the country.

    As a PR move it may have backfired, after global and national media broadcast images of shield-bearing and mounted police using force to clear Lafayette Park, an area whose use as a forum for demonstrations and speech has long been protected.
    The article you linked to is just one big bald assertion without any sources or official comments, so...

    Had you read the transitively linked articles you would have gotten your wish.

    Not to mention that what you think passes for evidence comes from people who don't even qualify as reporters .

    Trump has lost Pat Robertson, but do go on.


    Pat Robertson has stated in a new video that Donald Trump’s handling of the civil rights protests “isn’t cool” and he’s also sharply criticizing Trump for threatening to use the U.S. military to attack the protesters.

    There were no links in the article or any quotes from named sources to support the claims.

    Ok, I will admit I thought I had posted the Salon article which had a link to the NYT article.

    And...?
    Your claim was

    Robertson doesn't hate Trump and the throngs who still care what Robertson thinks don't hate Trump. So, as I said, this stunt has hurt Trump.
