Rome archbishop urges Trump to fight ‘deep state’ amid criticism over protests, coronavirus
A Catholic archbishop said the “deep state” is “fiercely waging war against” President Trump amid the coronavirus pandemic and riots following the death of George Floyd.
Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano of Rome urged Trump on Sunday to fight against the so-called “deep state,” mainstream media, and the “deep church” in an open letter shared by LifeSiteNews.
“In recent months we have been witnessing the formation of two opposing sides that I would call Biblical: the children of light and the children of darkness,” Vigamo writes, adding that the deep state has “decided to show their cards, so to speak, by now revealing their plans.”
He believes investigations will bring to light mishandling of the COVID-19 crisis as well as what was behind the riots in several cities across the nation after Floyd died while in police custody on Memorial Day.
The former Apostolic Nuncio to the United States slammed Washington, D.C.’s Archbishop Wilton Gregory, who claimed Trump “egregiously misused and manipulated” the Saint John Paul II National Shrine by visiting it last week before signing an international religious liberty order. Trump was criticized for holding up a Bible at St. John’s Church after part of it was burned during a protest. Critics claim Trump used tear gas to clear protesters but officials, including Trump, deny it.
Vigamo said Gregory and other religious leaders aligned with him “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.”
