Trump meets Mormon leaders in Utah amid plans to scale back monuments

(4 Dec 2017) President Donald Trump is meeting with Mormon leaders during a trip to Utah to announce he’s scaling back two sprawling national monuments.
Trump on Monday visited Welfare Square, a complex in Salt Lake City run by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that provides aid to the poor.
Trump spoke briefly and publicly praised the church for the way it takes care of people.
The Republican president travelled west to announce his intention to shrink the Bears Ears and the Grand-Staircase Escalante national monuments spanning millions of acres in Utah.
He has condemned the act of creating the Utah monuments as a “massive federal land grab.”
The move is welcomed by the state’s top Republicans but opposed by Native American tribes and environmental groups.

    Pedos love to help children. Look into mormon history. You’ll find pedophilia travels through their DNA. Stop this cult.

    The articles of faith and the separation of church and state are a blessing to us all.

    I myself am a Latter Day Saint & find this cool, let’s say if President Trump does convert than this nation would definitely change & he would be able to be a huge speaker for the church. just a thought though 🙂

    The far righ evangelicals are driving their end time dispensenionalism into Trumpism.
    The same far right evangelicals will ban Mormonism, SDA and other minority religions, that they consider to be cults, like what Russian orthodoxy under Putin has done in Russia. Mormons need to vote Trumpism out or they will banned just like in Russia !

    If the Mormon Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints excommunicates Dr. John Gunnell, I will drop all my cases against him, with the exception of his role or lack thereof with respect to the Holocaust because that is under the authority of my son-in-law — Vic Isaac Alexander

    Fuck NO! The LD$ Cult is nothing but a Business with the name Church part of the type of business that gets Tax-Free Status. The L$D or LD$ CULT is False and church and Trump is Not My President. Him and his sidekick would be better off no where near office. The LD$ church pay’s people below the minim wage and they use the fact they are a Training Facility. They use the most loopholes they can and they hide Sexfeen’s and Pedophiles and Rapists. They don’t care about the POOR and the DISABLED! If you are ether of these they truely don’t care about you.

    LDS church through Mitt Romney have declared war on 63,000,000 million redstate voter’s. Tax free status? No a good move

    I wonder if the church leaders wanted the president to join their organization.



  21. Ada Vazquez on December 16, 2019 at 6:14 am

    I hope the church will help the American people not the people of other countries, the church usualy give millions of dollars instead of helping here in America for American’s. I noticed that the President NELSON wasn’t and the other’s sitting w him were not paying attention, i disagree with the church planing on helping build Muslim mosk in this country that cost the church millions of dollars means while there’s members struggling to make ends meet sorry but is true

    I hope you know that the welfare system that these bags of scum are talking about is just for the members and missionaries only and not for the community! Once a cult always a cult. They only help out their members and once in a while maybe they will help out someone in the community.
