Spirits Burnings

Recently, a string of black churches has been ravaged by fire in what could potentially be a string of racially-motivated arson attacks. Do you recall what their sworn statement said while they were taking the oath of office?

@POTUS "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States."

@VP "I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same: that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God."

But since the month they were both elected, November 2016 several black churches have burned down
2016 November 1 The 111-year-old Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church in Greenville, Mississippi, was burned and vandalized with the words "Vote Trump" spray-painted onto the building. The arsonist is a black man who is a member of the church and pleaded guilty in March 2019.
2019 March 26 St. Mary Baptist Church in Port Barre, Louisiana. This was the first in a series of three historically black churches over 100 years old, burned within a span of 10 days. Holden Matthews, 21, the son of a St. Landry Parish sheriff's deputy, has been charged with the burnings.
2019 April 2 Greater Union Baptist Church in Opelousas, Louisiana, allegedly burned by Holden Matthews.
2019 April 4 Mount Pleasant Baptist Church in Opelousas, Louisiana, allegedly burned by Holden Matthews.

@VP Pence and @POTUS Trump have tweeted about Notre Dame fire in France, but why have they not done so in their back yards? Why did they say nothing when these black churches burned down?

Why had neither man had responded to the recent fires that destroyed predominantly African American churches?

Should you remind these and all public servants who they really work for and that their oath was to protect every American against all enemies, foreign and domestic... Honestly, seriously?
