OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER-DAY SAINTS DURING HIS BRIEF STOP IN UTAH. ELEVEN NEWS REPORTER LANDON MOORE JOINS US
NOW. LANDON, THE PRESIDENT WENT ON QUITE THE SHOPPING
SPREE AT THE WELFARE SQUARE YESTERDAY.YES MADS, HE SURE DID. PRESIDENT TRUMP WAS IN UTAH ONLY A FEW HOURS
BUT IT DIDN’T STOP HIM FROM DOING A LITTLE GROCERY SHOPPING. AND APPARENTLY, HE REALLY LIKES TUNA. “I’ve just come from touring Welfare Square
with Senator Hatch, and some amazing people from the leadership of The Church of Jesus
Christ of the Latter-day Saints.” BEFORE HEADING TO THE CAPITOL TO ANNOUNCE
CHANGES TO TWO UTAH NATIONAL MONUMENTS, PRESIDENT TRUMP VISITED WITH LDS CHURCH LEADERS HENRY
B. EYRING, RUSSELL M. NELSON, GERALD CAUSSE, AND JEAN B. BINGHAM. THE CHURCH LEADERS TOOK TRUMP ON A TOUR OF
THE BISHOP’S STOREHOUSE AND DESERET BAKERY, AND TAUGHT HIM ABOUT THE CHURCH’S WELFARE
AND SELF-RELIANCE PROGRAMS. “This is simply an example of what we do across
the world. The idea being that we think we have an obligation
to God to look out for the people who, without our aid, have tragedy in their lives, either
poverty or hunger.” A RECENT EXAMPLE OF THIS AID IS CHURCH ASSISTANCE
AFTER HURRICANE HARVEY. THE CHURCH SENT 50 SEMI-TRAILERS OF FOOD AND
OTHER SUPPLIES TO THE AREA. PRESIDENT TRUMP YESTERDAY PRAISED THE CHURCH
FOR ITS HUMANITARIAN WORK. “The Latter-day Saints, the job you’ve done
is beyond anything you can think of. In 180 countries, taking care of people the
way you take care of people.” LATER, AT THE CAPITOL, PRESIDENT TRUMP DESCRIBED
HIS EXPERIENCE AT THE STOREHOUSE TO THE CROWD. “I went around the store. I wanted a nice can of tuna fish. And they had plenty. They really help people.” PRESIDENT TRUMP IS THE SEVENTEENTH US PRESIDENT
TO MEET WITH CHURCH LEADERS OR VISIT CHURCH PROPERTY. PRESIDENT ULYSSES S. GRANT WAS THE FIRST PRESIDENT
TO VISIT UTAH, WHEN IT WAS STILL A TERRITORY IN 1875.
