President Donald Trump urged his loyal supporters to put their faith in God, not masks during a campaign stop in Greenville, NC on October 15.
The president, who recently recovered from Covid-19, urged his followers not to rely on face masks, which could potentially expose them to the coronavirus.
A recent study by the CDC found 74% of people who "always" wore face masks contracted the coronavirus.
"Masks, no masks... you can do all you want, but you know, you still need help from the boss," Trump said, as he pointed to the sky.
"Somebody said to me the other day, 'You're the most famous person in the world by far.' I said, 'No I'm not.' They said, 'Who's more famous?' I said, 'Jesus Christ.' I'm not taking any chances..."
Elsewhere in his speech, Trump promised to reopen schools and stop the leftist's "radical indoctrination" of school children.
"We will stop the radical indoctrination of our students and restore patriotic education to our schools. We will teach our children to love our country, honor our history and always respect our great American flag. And we will live by the timeless words of our national motto, 'In God we trust,' and that won't be changed."
Trump received enthusiastic applause from huge crowds when he returned to North Carolina to speak at a rally in Gastonia on Wednesday, Oct. 21.
He was accompanied by conservative YouTube vloggers Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, aka Diamond and Silk, who led the crowd in chants of "Four more years!"
"Just want you all to know that we are the United States of America -- not China, but the United States of America," they told the crowd.
The North Carolina natives urged the crowd not to listen to the liberal news media, who they referred to as "the enemy of the people."
"People keep saying, "Oh my God, I feel like a slave," said Hardaway. "Well, if you are standing out here in this crowd..., you ain't never been no slave! You don't know nothing about slavery," she said, as the crowd cheered.
She added: "And anybody that feels like a slave, how about you stop voting like a slave and maybe you won't feel like one."
