Title: Trump bucks breakfast tradition by calling for prayers for Schwarzenegger

Speaking at a National Prayer Breakfast unlike most before it, President Trump on Thursday said the nation has to be "tougher" in dealing with other countries, pledged to make it easier for religious groups to engage in politics — and asked the crowd to pray for his successor as host of The Apprentice.

"The ratings are right down the tubes" since Arnold Schwarzenegger took over as host of his former program, Trump said. "It's been a total disaster ... I want to just pray for Arnold, if we can."

Trump constantly referenced himself during his remarks, talking at one point about how people often greet him with five words that warm his heart: "I am praying for you." He also said "so many faith leaders" have been "very, very important people to me."

At another point, Trump referenced foreign policy, telling members of the prayer breakfast not to worry about reports of his "tough" phone calls with world leaders.

"We're being taken advantage of by every nation in the world, virtually," Trump said. "It's not going to happen anymore."

The president, as he did during the campaign, also vowed to repeal the "Johnson amendment," which forbids tax-exempt religious organizations from making political contributions or otherwise engaging in campaigns.

Striking religious themes, Trump spoke of the power of faith and prayer and said "this gathering is a testament to the power of faith."

In paying tribute to the prayer breakfast — a bipartisan Washington tradition — Trump also made a joking reference to his 2020 re-election bid.

"I hope to be here seven more times with you," he said.

So now churches can engage in political campaigns even if they're not black churches?

Uh Oh !

Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God.

There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."Theodore Roosevelt-1907.

I am concerned for the security of our great nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within." -- General Douglas MacArthur

Trump should pray for Arnold to be deported back to Austria, and then order DHS/ICE to make it so!

He ain't no "Dream Student".

The D&R Party is a suicide cult!

Truer words were never spoken. The word is full of incompetent primitives wishing to ride on our backs without changing.

Why not. Churches are a group of people not buildings.

I do not go to church every time the doors are opened, but I love Jesus Christ. I am only human and fail Him daily. I believe Jesus is the Son of God, was born of a virgin, was crucified on a cross, died for my sins and rose from the dead and that He loves us dearly, and is faithful to forgive us of our sins. But He says that if you deny me in front of your friends I will deny you in front of my Father. Can I get an Amen!

The Arnie thing was a joke.

Past presidents tell jokes at these events.

For example:

"Churches are a group of people not buildings."

A tax-exempt group of people.
