Proving himself a friend of the faith community once again, President Donald J. Trump has signed an order establishing $375 million dollars in federal money to help churches protect themselves against mass shooters.
Trump announced in the East Room of the White House, “”in the face of attacks on synagogues, mosques, and churches in our community — something that is just so horrible — we must work together to reject the monstrous evils of anti-Semitism and anti-religious bigotry.”
“I will sign legislation authorizing $375 million for federal grants to help houses of worship and other faith-based and non-profit organizations defend against violence,” Trump said to applause, adding, “It’s crazy; what’s going on is crazy.”
The law will increase funding for the Nonprofit Security Grants Program, allows houses of worship to apply for $100,000 grants for things like fencing, cameras, stronger doors and security professionals. The bill passed both chambers unanimously.
