I did not.  My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always a) painted my parents as being filthy rich and b) painted me as being born with a silver spoon in my mouth and as having always been privileged. Ask them why I washed dishes for the minimum wage in the basement of the S.S. Kresges in Chicago Heights during my junior and senior years in high school 1964-1966, why I cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline during the summer of 1966, why I delivered mail 1966-1969, and why I worked on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard in 1970.)

— Trump to issue Magna Carta of religious liberty – Bryan Fischer
https://www.onenewsnow.com/perspectives/bryan-fischer/2017/02/03/trump-to-issue-magna-carta-of-religious-liberty
(FROM THE ARTICLE: We read every day of Christians who have been fired from government positions because of things they did or said outside the workplace on Facebook, or, for example, as part-time pastors. Under Trump, that comes to a dead stop at the federal level. No agency will be allowed to punish a federal employee for advocating for their values “while outside the scope of their employment.” What a Christian does and says on his own time will henceforth be none of the government’s business. And Christians won’t be gagged even at work, say, during breaks, in the cafeteria, and on site before or after work. Agencies will be directed to “reasonably accommodate” religious speech and action even “within the course of their employment.” No one will be prohibited from “receiving government grants or contracts” because their business is guided by Christian principles. Federal agencies “will accommodate the religion of federal employees” and will not “substantially burden … (their) religious exercise.” Christian employees of federal agencies will no longer need to fear harassment and punishment for bringing their faith to work with them.)
