( – Former President Donald Trump took to his social media platform Truth Social to express his support for the controversial Louisiana law which mandates that the Ten Commandments need to be displayed in all public school and college classrooms. 

Trump in his post argued that he loves the “Ten Commandments” in private and public schools as well as other places. He added that it is not possible for them to go wrong as a nation and it could be the first step in reviving the religion that is needed in the country. Trump then called for the Ten Commandments to be brought back. 

President Biden, who is likely to face former President Donald Trump in a tight reelection battle has opted to not issue a public address regarding the law. 

Republican Louisiana Gov. Jeff Landry signed House Bill 71 into law on Wednesday, as it managed to easily pass through the Republican-controlled Legislature in the state. 

However, the bill has received a lot of criticism, including from the Freedom From Religion Foundation and American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) which has vowed that they would fight this law which they view as “blatantly unconstitutional.” They have further promised that they are going to be taking this law to court.  

While President Biden is a devout Catholic, known to attend Mass with his family he has not issued any statement regarding the law. 

Louisiana’s ACLU chapter noted in a statement that it was not up to politicians to impose on students religious doctrines in public schools. This statement was jointly released by the Freedom from Religion Foundation and the Americans United for Separation of Church and State.
