The use of the phrase “under one God,” excludes anyone who is Hindu, atheist, agnostic. It also likely leaves out anyone who believes in a God that isn’t the same one envisioned by right-wing Christians in America, such as affirming Christian denominations and Muslims. It darkly hints at discrimination against anyone who sees God a bit differently. But the religious subtext isn’t the worst part of this phrase.
The worst part is that Trump’s campaign appears to have deliberately borrowed language used by the Nazi Party in Germany.
