Trump tweets archbishop's letter calling Covid-19, BLM protests a 'deep state' plot to hurt his re-election

President Donald Trump's administration faces two tough challenges in the run-up to the November 3 general election in forms of coronavirus pandemic and Black Lives Matter protests in the wake of the brutal death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. The president has done his best to put up a brave face against these challenges but the criticism has refused to die down. And now, the commander-in-chief is supporting those who feel the twin challenges are part of a conspiracy of the "deep state" to derail his re-election bid. 

Carlo Maria Vigano, a 79-year-old controversial Catholic archbishop, recently penned a long letter to Trump in which he called the current climate as a battle between good and evil and the president tweeted it, saying: "So honored by Archbishop Vigano's incredible letter to me. I hope everyone, religious or not, reads it!"

"In society, Mr President, these two opposing realities co-exist as eternal enemies, just as God and Satan are eternal enemies. And it appears that the children of darkness – whom we may easily identify with the deep state, which you wisely oppose and which is fiercely waging war against you in these days – have decided to show their cards, so to speak, by now revealing their plans," Vigano wrote. 

'Unrest being provoked as Covid-19 virus is fading'

Vigano said "investigations" into the pandemic response will "reveal the true responsibility of those who managed the Covid-19 emergency" and expose a "colossal operation of social engineering". He added, "We will also discover that the riots in these days were provoked by those who, seeing that the virus is inevitably fading and that the social alarm of the pandemic is waning, necessarily have had to provoke civil disturbances, because they would be followed by repression which, although legitimate, could be condemned as unjustified aggression against the population."

"It is quite clear that the use of street protests is instrumental to the purposes of those who would like to see someone elected in the upcoming presidential elections who embodies the goals of the deep state and who expresses those goals faithfully and with conviction," the religious leader said.

Vigano then assured the president that he is not alone in the battle, saying a "deep church" exists among the clergy as well. He also recalled the criticism that Trump faced from the Catholic Church for appearing in front of a statue of Pope John Paul II last week, a day after adventuring to the St John's Church in Washington DC and posing with a Bible after protesters were dispersed.

"They are subservient to the deep state, to globalism, to aligned thought, to the New World Order which they invoke ever more frequently in the name of a universal brotherhood, which has nothing Christian about it, but which evokes the Masonic ideals of those want to dominate the world by driving God out of the courts, out of schools, out of families, and perhaps even out of churches," Vigano said about the critics. 

He also slammed the media and said it did not want to "spread the truth." Vigano then told the president that he knew he was on the good side of the equation for his participation in March for Life and National Child Abuse Prevention Month. "However, it is important that the good – who are the majority – wake up from their sluggishness and do not accept being deceived by a minority of dishonest people with unavowable purposes," Vigano said.

He added: "It is necessary that the good, the children of light, come together and make their voices heard." He concluded the letter saying he was praying for the president against the "Invisible Enemy", a term Trump has used in the past to define the coronavirus pandemic. The Covid-19 pandemic has affected almost two million people in the US while the death toll has gone past 112,000, the worst in the world. 

The BLM protests, on the other hand, saw the deaths of many and destruction of massive property after violence erupted in several parts of the US in the wake of the agonizing death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black American, last month.
