The PAC in Cardiff and the British Royal Family Rolls Out the Red Carpet for President Trump
A Day of Prayer (4 minutes)
Yesterday, President Donald Trump paid a surprise visit to a church in Virginia in the wake of the Virginia Beach mass shooting. He prayed with Pastor David Platt of McLean Bible Church, who asked for a special blessing on the president.

These strong religious undertones tie in with a specific Bible prophecy!

However, he is facing some serious opposition already; the Guardian editorial board has declared that the president is “not welcome,” and London Mayor Sadiq Khan compared him to “the fascists of the 20th century” and condemned British leadership for rolling out the red carpet for the leader of one of their most important allies.

In the European Parliament elections in May, voters again shifted away from the political center toward fringe parties. What is next for Europe?
