Every President Recited The Apostles' Creed Except Trump, And People Definitely Noticed

Trump didn't recite the profession of faith during the funeral for former President George H.W. Bush.

People on Twitter are calling out President Donald Trump for failing to recite the Apostles’ Creed at the funeral for former President George H. W. Bush on Wednesday. 

Footage from the event shows much of the church, including the former presidents seated with Trump, standing to recite the profession of faith

Trump and first lady Melania Trump stood, but did not recite the creed, which was written in the program, nor did they sing the hymns. 

Given Trump’s widespread support among evangelical Christians, that led to plenty of criticism on social media:
