At a White House dinner Monday night, a Florida pastor who has gained a following preaching on television and advising the president gave Donald Trump a Bible signed by more than 100 leading evangelical Christians with an inscription that said “History will record the greatness that you have brought for generations.” After giving Trump the Bible, the Rev. Paula White asked those who agreed with the inscription to say “Amen.” At the dinner, Trump claimed he ended “attacks on communities of faith.” “We’ve taken action to defend the religious conscience of doctors, nurses, teachers, students, preachers, faith groups, and religious employers,” he said in a speech laden with references to God. Meanwhile, advocacy groups say that hate-motivated attacks on Jews rose nearly 60 percent last year and attacks on Muslims rose 15 percent.
