President Trump said that presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden is “against God” in a visit to Ohio on Thursday, drawing a swift rebuke from his challenger’s campaign. He warned that Biden would crack down on guns and religion if elected president.

"Take away your guns, take away your Second Amendment. No religion, no anything," Trump said during a speech on the tarmac of the Cleveland Airport. "Hurt the Bible. Hurt God. He’s against God. He’s against guns. He’s against energy."

Biden’s campaign swiftly responded to the controversial remarks. The former vice president is a practicing Roman Catholic.

"Biden's faith is at the core of who he is," Biden campaign spokesperson Andrew Bates said. "(Biden has) lived it with dignity his entire life, and it's been a source of strength and comfort in times of extreme hardship."

Trump has tried numerous times to tie Biden to the far-left, and his latest remarks could be an attempt to court evangelicals. Biden has frequently spoken with voters of faith, particularly in the African-American community.

Trump has previously called the Bible “his favorite book,” but was unable to name his favorite verse in a 2015 interview. In June, Trump walked out of St. John's Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C., with a Bible that some claimed he was holding upside down.
