Whoever handles the twitter feed for the Diocese of Syracue may have been tweeting put sweet nothings to President Trump this last weekend ("Please pray for wisdom and God's guidance for @POTUS as he implements his 'bold agenda' for America" the tweet read, although it has since been taken down) but the Bishop of Syracuse had some sharper words about the president's agenda as it relates to refugees. They should still find out who tweeted out the "bold agenda" nonsense and reprimand that person, but at least the bishop himself is not confused about where he needs to stand on the issue of refugees.
