Trump warns Saudis: "Drive out foot soldiers of evil" or "be judged by God"

"Drive them out!" Trump said of terrorists to dozens of Muslim leaders who attended his remarks. "Of your places of worship, drive them out of your communities, drive them out of your Holy Land, and drive them out of this Earth!"

The speech during the initial stop of the president's first foreign trip was a stark contrast to his previous comments on Islam. As a candidate, Trump frequently criticized the religion, saying, "I think Islam hates us" and "there's a tremendous hatred there."

In Riyadh, Trump said, "This is not a battle between different faiths, different sects, or different civilizations. This is a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life, and decent people of all religions who seek to protect it."

Calling terrorists "the foot soldiers of evil," the president added, "If we do not stand in uniform condemnation of this killing, then we not only will be judged by our people, not only will we be judged by history, but we will be judged by God."

1. The Saudis would do that yesterday, but . . .

Women aren't allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia.

2. God wonders why Donnie hasn't been in church

Seems he's been playing hookie out on the golf course... every Sunday. Maybe Trump shouldn't pretend to speak for God.

4. I'm really starting to think that the god they worship is a raging asshole.

And someone who's a complete greedy narcissist. You know, the opposite of Jesus.

8. Hmmm....I am an atheist who was raised Catholic and it is my

memory that one of Jesus' big things was "Judge not."

This is too creepy close to theocracy for comfort. But, I guess for folks that are used to listening to some church people it will sound like just what they like to hear.
