On Sunday, Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano of Rome unloaded on the “deep state” while defending President Trump, stating that they are “fiercely waging war against” the President in response to the Chinese coronavirus pandemic and the riots from the death of George Floyd.
The archbishop encouraged President Trump to fight against the “deep state,” the media and even the “deep church.”
“In recent months we have been witnessing the formation of two opposing sides that I would call Biblical: the children of light and the children of darkness,” Vigano wrote in an open letter provided by LifeSiteNews. He explained that the “darkness” side “decided to show their cards, so to speak, by now revealing their plans.”

He believes investigations will bring to light mishandling of the COVID-19 crisis as well as what was behind the riots in several cities across the nation after Floyd died while in police custody on Memorial Day.
The former Apostolic Nuncio to the United States slammed Washington, D.C.’s Archbishop Wilton Gregory, who claimed Trump “egregiously misused and manipulated” the Saint John Paul II National Shrine by visiting it last week before signing an international religious liberty order. Trump was criticized for holding up a Bible at St. John’s Church after part of it was burned during a protest. Critics claim Trump used tear gas to clear protesters but officials, including Trump, deny it.
Vigano then went on to unload on Gregory and other left-wing religious leaders, stating that they “are subservient to the deep state, to globalism, to aligned thought, to the New World Order which they invoke ever more frequently in the name of a universal brotherhood which has nothing Christian about it, but which evokes the Masonic ideals of those want to dominate the world by driving God out of the courts, out of schools, out of families, and perhaps even out of churches.”
Gregory went as far to call on priests on Monday morning to dress in all black and gather in Lafayeette Park to protest President Trump.
Vigano continued with his defense of President Trump by stating that the attacks against the President for visiting St. Johns was a “part of the orchestrated media narrative which seeks not to fight racism and bring social order, but to aggravate dispositions; not to bring justice, but to legitimize violence and crime; not to serve the truth, but to favor one political faction.”
The archbishop went on to praise President Trump for “courageously” defending “the right to life” and for being unashamed “to denounce the persecution of Christians.”
“For the first time, the United States has in you a President who courageously defends the right to life, who is not ashamed to denounce the persecution of Christians throughout the world, who speaks of Jesus Christ and the right of citizens to freedom of worship,” Vigano wrote, also noting, “And I dare to believe that both of us are on the same side in this battle, albeit with different weapons.”
Vigano finished by saying that he believes Americans “are mature and have now understood how much the mainstream media does not want to spread the truth but seeks to silence and distort it, spreading the lie that is useful for the purposes of their masters.”
Americans must “come together and make their voices heard,” he added.
