Washington DC Archbishop Wilton Gregory released a statement in 2020 during the deadly BLM-Antifa riots attacking President Donald Trump for visiting the John Paul II National Shrine.
The DC Archbishop Gregory lectured President Trump on “defending the rights of all people even those with whom we might disagree” while at the same time attacking him for visiting a Catholic Shrine. This was during the BLM rioting that caused $2 billion in damages to property nationally and numerous deaths.
President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump visited the shrine for a religious freedom event.
They visited the Catholic Shrine before signing an executive order promoting religious freedom. First Lady Melania Trump is a practicing Catholic.
The media failed to report this important detail in their hit pieces on President Trump.
Instead, Archbishop Gregory made the headlines because he LECTURED President Trump for visiting the shrine! What a petty and disgraceful man.

Archbishop Gregory went out of his way to attack President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump.
But now this same leftist tool is defending Nancy Pelosi’s right to receive Communion despite her stand for abortion up to birth.
This letter from the Archbishop’s office was sent to the Washington Examiner.
Gregory will not instruct priests to deny Pelosi Communion.
The Washington Examiner added, In a September 2021 interview with Crux, Gregory said it was not the role of bishops to serve as “police.”
