President Donald Trump was widely praised for his speech before the Polish people Thursday, but one line made many of his critics blow a gasket on social media.

Here’s the line as reported by CNBC’s John Harwood on Twitter:

Many reacted in horror at the thought of our president saying that people are crying out for God.

“WTF is that supposed to mean? That he is God? I do NOT want God, and if I do, I sure as heck do not need my government to pick my God for me,” responded Twitter user @Catbert234.

What many of these critics didn’t realize is that Trump didn’t invent the phrase, it was a quote that the Polish people would instantly recognize. When Pope John Paul II, now a saint, visited Poland in 1979, the chant “we want God” became a rallying cry for the Polish people seeking freedom from oppressive Soviet control.

Many mocked the passage, not knowing they were simply manifesting their own ignorance of history.

Another user mocked, “That’s not what he said on tape.He said ‘he wanted to grab pu**ies.’ Maybe try going to church instead of golfing. if you want God so badly.”

Trump was also maligned by a deceptively edited video that falsely portrayed the first lady of Poland snubbing his handshake. Many shared it without bothering to check for the longer video that showed her cheerfully shaking his hand after greeting first lady Melania Trump.

The president will attend the G-20 economic summit Friday where he will attend a highly anticipated meeting with Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin.
