Is this mixing church and state...state and church??
Is the president crossing the line here or are some people very selective about this topic...Separation of church and state and the exclusionary rule.
Does this line of thought only apply to the people of the country and not to government ..or is the limit intended to be on government and not the people??
What does the amendment state??
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
I am reading this as a limit on government not on the people. To further state this ..the first ten amendments are all limits on government not the people.
However here we have a president preaching from the pulpit for support to his policies.

I just find it interesting the silence from the separation of church and state crowds on this...pretty much total silence from someone acting in a official government capacity.
To me this just shows the lack of separation..or the one way ness of it.
Which also confirms to me that politics and government are a devout and zealous religion. One undefined to and for most of us.
It also confirms the dominant media bias in supporting such a government religion by the bulk of the MSM.
