Trump criticized for not reading Apostles' Creed at Bush funeral

President TrumpDonald TrumpTrump hails Arizona Senate for audit at Phoenix rally, slams governor Arkansas governor says it's 'disappointing' vaccinations have become 'political' Watch live: Trump attends rally in Phoenix MORE did not join other attendees at former President George H.W. Bush's funeral on Wednesday as they read the Apostles' Creed, drawing pushback from critics online.

Trump stood solemnly beside the Clintons and Obamas as the former presidents recited the Christian creed from their programs. 

Trump did not engage in some of the singing during the service, some detractors pointed out. Former President George W. Bush also did not participate in all of the songs.


"Striking that all the former Presidents and First Ladies recited the Apostles Creed, but Trump and Melania stood silently and did not," one Twitter user wrote. "The creeds are at the heart of historic orthodox Christianity." 

Trump is a professed Presbyterian and performs well among evangelical voters, which some users noted.

"There are people who will find an excuse for why Trump could not simply look at the program and read the Apostles' Creed who would have called Obama the anti-Christ if he had stood there silently like this," another user wrote on Twitter.
