Daily Wire: For a change of pace, President Trump caused a controversy today. He got the media and the Left hot and bothered this time around by lending his endorsement to Bible literacy classes. In a tweet this morning, he said: “Numerous states introducing Bible Literacy classes, giving students the option of studying the Bible. Starting to make a turn back? Great!”

Period.
Not only is there no Scripture for Esau (Genesis 36:1) dwelling in the land, but Obadiah 1:18, Isaiah 63:1-3 Malachi 1:1-3 call for God’s destruction on all Edom.
“For they are not all Israel who are of Israel” (Romans 9:6), making it clear that some descendants of Abraham (Ishmael, Esau, sons of Keturah) are not true Israel.
