NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: Jesse Watters, host of Fox News' 'Jesse Watters Primetime', responds to the criticism that former President Trump is receiving for endorsing the 'God Bless America' Bible.

Watters highlighted Trump's collaboration with Lee Greenwood, the country music icon renowned for his patriotic anthem 'God Bless the U.S.A.', which often reverberates through Trump's rallies.

Watters contextualized Trump's venture by drawing parallels to historical precedents, beginning, "Last week, the former president [was] promoting a 'God Bless the USA' Bible, which includes documents from America's founding."

"Trump is partnering with Lee Greenwood, whose famous song 'God Bless the U.S.A.' you hear playing at his rallies. This isn't out of the ordinary," he noted.

"During World War II, FDR sent signed Bibles to American soldiers. He even wrote a foreword to the New Testament. Jimmy Carter is selling a signed 'Lessons from the Bible' book online. It's over $300 bucks," he said.

Judge Juan Merchan scheduled Trump's criminal trial to begin on April 15, which would make it the first criminal prosecution of a former American president. Trump was charged with 34 counts of falsifying business records last year, which prosecutors say was an effort to hide a potential sex scandal, both before and after the 2016 election.

"Oh, and then there's the Jimmy Carter signed Bibles that are available right now for purchase for $98 bucks. Trump's is $59.99," he continued. 

The crux of Watters' argument lies in the perceived hypocrisy of critics, juxtaposing the outrage over Trump's Bible promotion with what he sees as more pressing issues.

"Today, Democrats are acting like Trump committed an act of blasphemy," he remarked, questioning whether Trump's actions truly warranted such condemnation amid other political controversies.

Watters also took aim at the media's portrayal of Trump's promotion as "tacky," suggesting a bias against the former president.

He said, "The media is acting like it's tacky for Trump to promote the word of God. Biden iced out his illegitimate grandchild, is helping keep his crackhead, tax-cheating son out of prison while his dog bites the White House staff and trans activists flash us on July 4."

"Let's not get into a battle over who is tackier," Watters quipped, implying that the criticisms of Trump were hypocritical given the broader political landscape.

He added, "Trump is a salesman. Is the media saying there should be less Bibles in America? It's probably the best thing Trump's ever sold. Well except Trump wine, which is divine."
