Trump says it’s ‘sad’ Obama skipped Scalia funeral
Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump is questioning whether President Barack Obama would have attended Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s funeral Mass "if it were held in a mosque."
Trump says on Twitter that it’s "very sad" that Obama didn’t attend Saturday’s service in Washington.
Vice President Joe Biden represented the administration. Obama visited the court on Friday to view Scalia’s flag-draped casket. The White House says Obama’s decision about the Mass was a "respectful arrangement" that took into account his large security detail.
Trump has raised questions about Obama’s birthplace and religion, falsely suggesting that Obama was born outside the United States and is a Muslim.
Trump’s tweet came as South Carolina was holding its GOP primary.
