Speaking to a small crowd at an airport in Cleveland, President Trump unleashed a deranged rant accusing presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden of being “against God.”
Trump said Biden, a lifelong practicing Catholic, would “hurt the Bible” and “hurt God” if he were elected president.
“No religion, no anything – hurt the bible, hurt God,” Trump told the crowd.
“He’s against God,” he continued. “He’s against guns. He’s against energy. I don’t think he’s going to do too well in Ohio.”

Recent polls indicate the president and Biden are virtually tied in Ohio, which Trump carried by 8 points in 2016.
The rant came hours after Trump told Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera that Biden was “against the Bible” — a comment that stunned even Rivera.
“That may be a little harsh,” a stunned Rivera replied.
As CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale noted, Trump never publicly identified as a Christian until he started running for president in 2015, and he raised eyebrows when he said that he had never asked God for forgiveness, which is a central tenet of Christian doctrine.
