President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Saturday to repeat a debunked claim that Democrats removed the words "under God" during recitations of the Pledge of Allegiance at the Democratic National Convention (DNC), Newsweek reported.
In the tweet, which Newsweek writer Benjamin Fearnow posited was an attempt to appeal to suburban, evangelical Christian voters, the president claimed that he was taken aback by the alleged omission.
"The Democrats took the word GOD out of the Pledge of Allegiance at the Democrat National Convention. At first I thought they made a mistake, but it wasn't. It was done on purpose. Remember Evangelical Christians, and ALL, this is where they are coming from-it's done. Vote Nov 3!"
Several key parts of the convention were live-streamed to audiences at home, during which the Pledge was recited several times. In all of the broadcasted recitations, a compendium of which was tweeted by a Donald Trump parody Twitter account, the words "under God" can be heard plainly and clearly.
Similarly, in a video, which can be seen below, Biden's grandchildren recite the pledge, including the phrase "under God."
