Mike Pence Just Tried to Claim That Donald Trump Is a Champion of Religious Freedom, and People Are Making a Pretty Obvious Point

The White House

Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen addressed attendees of a National Day of Prayer event outside the White House on Thursday.

Shortly before introducing President Donald Trump, Pence bragged of the president's accomplishments, saying:

"President Trump has taken steps to ensure that the Federal Government will never, ever penalize anyone for their religious beliefs ever again."

While the sentiment is nice, the vice president seems to be forgetting one thing...

Pence infamously threw his support behind Executive Order 13769, or Trump's ban on entry to the United States for citizens of predominantly Muslim countries.

So when Pence said "religious beliefs," people inferred that his words only applied to Christianity.

Thoughts and prayers.
