David Platt/McLean Bible Church

In the aftermath of a shooting at a Virginia Beach municipal complex, President Donald Trump made an unannounced visit to Mclean Bible Church in Vienna, Virginia. Though the White House insisted that Trump made the visit to pay tribute to the 12 people killed in the shooting, Pastor David Platt says he was told to pray for Trump. There was no mention of the Virginia Beach shooting during the prayer or while Trump was present.

In a letter addressed to his congregation, Platt explained that he "in no way" intended to endorse President Donald Trump when Trump appeared onstage with him following a sermon.

The freshman Congresswoman urged her social media followers to compare the "life choices" of these students to those who are still saddled with student debt over the next decade.

President Donald Trump wants the fence at the southern border to be painted black with spikes at the top and fewer gates, according to a report in The Washington Post:

Trump reportedly wants the wall's bollards to be painted "flat black." He has told White House aides, Homeland Security officials and military engineers that the color would absorb the summer heat, "making the metal too hot for climbers to scale." He has specified that the tips of the bollards "should be pointed, not round" and has described "in graphic terms the potential injuries that border crossers might receive." He has even argued that blueprints include too many gates, which are placed at intervals to allow vehicles and people to pass, and has said the openings should be "smaller."

Conservative pundit Tomi Lahren made headlines yesterday after she spoke out against Alabama's ban on all abortions, which outlaws the procedure even in cases of rape or incest and punishes doctors who perform abortions with up to 99 years in prison.

Evangelical author Lance Wallnau described a $45 coin decorated with President Donald Trump's face as a "point of contact" with God. The coin was promoted on The Jim Bakker Show. It depicts Trump alongside King Cyrus, the founder of the first Persian empire.

“When I asked the Lord ‘Why the coin?’ he said, ‘Because when you take the coin, it’s a point of contact,'” Wallnau, who once compared Trump to King Cyrus, says in a viral clip of the promotion. “So your faith is being released with a million other believers to pray protection and peace and wisdom and counsel over the president of the United States and over his family."
