Yesterday, Donald Trump announced he would act on another campaign promise: repeal The Johnson Amendment, created by the then Senator from Texas, Lyndon B Johnson.
Religious groups have tax-free status in the US. This amendment prohibits endorsement and financial contribution from any such group to a particular campaign or candidate. Doing so means losing the tax-exempt status enjoyed since 1954.
Secularism is not an American concept( 'In God We Trust', ) but this next presidential act has caused more controversy.
