Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) at the weekend retweeted a post on Twitter which said in part “F**k a National day of prayer,” in relation to President Trump’s call for Americans of all faiths to pray for all those affected by the coronavirus outbreak.

Late Saturday, anti-gun activist David Hogg posted a tweet, saying, “Don’t let this administration address COVID-19 like our national gun violence epidemic. F**k a National day of prayer, we need immediate comprehensive action.”

Tlaib, a Palestinian-American and one of the first two Muslim women to be elected to the U.S. Congress, retweeted it, without comment.

Hogg’s tweet linked to a video clip from Saturday’s briefing of the White House coronavirus taskforce.

In that clip, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson said, “Now, President Trump is going to be recommending a National Day of Prayer.  And, you know, we’ve gotten away from prayer and faith a lot in this country.”

 

“There’s nothing wrong with godly principles no matter what your faith is,” Carson said. “Loving your neighbor, caring about the people around you, developing your God-given talents to the utmost so that you become valuable to the people around you, having values and principles that govern your life – those are things that made America zoom to the top of the world in record time.”

“And those are the things that will keep us there too.”
