In his first comments since President Donald Trump supporters stormed the Capitol Building in protest of the 2020 election this past Wednesday, Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York, condemned the president for instigating the behavior.
After hours of chaos in the nation’s capital Wednesday where President Donald Trump supporters descended upon and infiltrated the Capitol building in protest of the 2020 election, Catholic leaders across the country condemned the violence and called for peace.
During his campaign and in February once in office, President Trump promised to “destroy” the Johnson Amendment and “allow our representatives of faith to speak freely and without fear.” Many religious leaders are opposed to the removal of the Amendment saying it would have a detrimental effect on them.

In a very short time Trump has acted on abortion, religious freedom and immigration earning both outcry and support from Christians.
