Trump Bashes Beto for Gun, Church Tax Exemption Stances

(C-SPAN)

President Donald Trump on Thursday took sharp aim at Beto O'Rourke, blasting his plan to confiscate assault-style rifles and support for rescinding the tax-exempt status for churches and charities that are anti-LGBTQ.

"No religion and no guns; I think that's not good," Trump said at a packed rally in Dallas — as O'Rourke, a Democratic contender for president, held a counter-rally in nearby Grand Prairie.

He did the same when Trump held a rally in El Paso in February and drew a substantial crowd, but his standing in the race has since fallen.

"Last week a very dumb Democrat candidate for president pledged to revoke the tax-exempt status of many churches and religious charities," Trump said during the rally at American Airlines Arena, The Hill reported.

"That was after, a few weeks ago, he said, 'Excuse me, we're going to take your guns away," Trump continued before mocking O'Rourke's arm gestures. "And I called him right. Remember the flailing arms? Nobody noticed it. I noticed it. The flailer."

"Beto, in a few short weeks, got rid of guns then got rid of religion," Trump added. "Those are not two good things in Texas to get rid of."

"He's at 0 [percent] right now," Trump said of O'Rourke's standing in the crowded Democratic primary race, The Hill reported.
