JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

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.
