A Confused Trump Pulled Out Money During Communion In Iowa Church

Donald Trump was a little confused by communion while attending services at a church in Council Bluffs, Iowa, on Sunday.

When the communion plates were passed at the nondenominational First Christian Orchard Campus, Melania Trump and two campaign staffers both participated in communion. However, Trump at first thought it was time for the offering and pulled out bills from his pockets, according to the Associated Press.

“I thought it was for offering,” he told staffers and laughed, according to the AP.

He then contributed later when the church passed plates for the offering.

Trump has been courting evangelical voters in Iowa, and he has been attending church services throughout the state.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
