Eric Trump said that his father Donald Trump "literally saved Christianity" from "atheist & far-left Democrats" in the United States. While speaking on a conservative radio show in North Dakota last Friday, October 2, POTUS Donald Trump's son had described him as a religious savior. Eric spoke to WZFG and told the pro-Trump hosts, "He literally saved Christianity, there's a war on faith in this country by the other side."

"I mean, the Democratic Party, the far left, has become the party of the quote-unquote atheist, they want to attack Christianity, they want to close churches. They're totally fine keeping liquor stores open, but they want to close churches all over the country," Eric added. He had been referring to the coronavirus related church shutdowns which are decided by governors and not Trump. Governor Andrew Cuomo banned religious gatherings in nine New York City hotspots over fears of super-spreader fears.

According to Scientific American, research suggests that events such as these results in outbreaks with recent studies showing that 10-20% of infected people cause almost 80 percent of infections. The article revealed, "Scientists have identified factors that catalyze such events, including large crowd sizes, close contact between people and confined spaces with poor ventilation."

"Current evidence suggests that it is mostly circumstances such as these, rather than the biology of specific individuals, that sets the stage for extreme spreading of the novel coronavirus," the article added. Trump has been vocally pro-life ever since his election in 2016 and had 80% of the White, evangelical Christian vote.

On Tuesday, October 6, he took to Twitter to share, "Biden and Democrats just clarified the fact that they are fully in favor of (very) LATE TERM ABORTION, right up until the time of birth, and beyond - which would be execution. Biden even endorsed the Governor of Virginia, who stated this clearly for all to hear. GET OUT & VOTE!!!"

However, Trump revealed how he was "pro-choice in every respect" while speaking at a Meet The Press segment on NBC in 1999. During the interview, he shared, "I'm very pro-choice. I hate the concept of abortion. I cringe when I listen to people debating the subject. But I just believe in choice."

"And again, it may be a little bit of a New York background because there is a different attitude in different parts of the country – but I was raised in New York," he added. 

We had earlier reported that the Commission on Presidential Debates announced on Thursday, October 8 morning that the second debate between presidential candidate Joe Biden and President Donald Trump will be virtual. A little after the announcement was made, Trump revealed that he refused to take part in a virtual debate while speaking to Fox Business. Trump, who has been diagnosed with Covid-19 said, "I'm not going to do a virtual debate. No, I'm not going to waste my time with a virtual debate." Biden on the other hand is ready to take part in a virtual campaign. In a statement to ABC News, the campaign said, "Vice President Biden looks forward to speaking directly to the American people and comparing his plan for bringing the country together and building back better with Donald Trump's failed leadership on the coronavirus that has thrown the strong economy he inherited into the worst downturn since the Great Depression."
