Episcopal Bishop on President Trump: “Everything He Has Said and Done Is to Inflame Violence”

The Washington Post‘s Michelle Boorstein and Sarah Pulliam Bailey talk to the Right Rev. Mariann Budde, the Episcopal bishop of Washington, after President Trump staged a photo op in front of one of her churches without notifying her. “I am outraged,” she said. Trump walked to St. John’s Episcopal from the White House after police used force to clear peaceful protesters from his path.
