Brian Karem is the White House correspondent for Playboy, executive editor for local Maryland newspapers, and a liberal CNN political analyst, is not an expert on American history. During the State of the Union Address, Karem thought he’d caught President Donald Trump making a mistake when he said the motto of the United States is “In God we trust.” Karem tweeted, “Our motto is “in God we trust.” – WRONG. Our motto has been E Pluribus Unum – out of many One.” He was wrong, and people immediately pounced.

“In God we trust” officially became the national motto in 1956. It was reaffirmed in 2002, 2006, and 2011, with it passing the House of Representatives in 2011 by a vote of 396 to 9.
