The images of the "nuns" rapidly went viral yesterday while Trump gave his lively speech in the Ohio city – but some people questioned whether they were real.

The nuns were spotted cheering when Trump invoked God and seen holding up Bibles.

"This can’t be real," said Twitter user, who shared an image of the women.

"The #MAGA nuns love Trump!" tweeted one of his supporters but others questioned the authenticity of the holy sisters.

"Trump is operating in desperation mode," claimed a third person, while a fourth said "I’m willing to bet anything I’ve got that those 'nuns' are plants, bought and paid for by the Trump campaign."

"It’s a pathetic attempt to grab up votes for a losing cause," they added.

"Not real nuns, he found them on craigs list [sic]. Real nuns don't look unkept," commented a fifth person.

"[I wonder if] the nuns approve of him cheating on his pregnant wife with a porn star," pondered another user in an apparent reference to his alleged affair with Stormy Daniels.

Daniels claimed she was paid hush money to stay quiet about their relationship which took place after the birth of his son Barron – an allegation Trump has repeatedly denied.

But others on Twitter were convinced it was a sign the president was "holding up God's Word."

"They made sure that God was right behind our President, guiding him, protecting him," one person said.

"Btw, I have the same exact Bible, it's a scripture study bible," they added. "Excellent for bible study."

"Gotta love the nuns with the MAGA masks behind Trump," agreed another Trump fan.

Trump's presidential rival Joe Biden is a practicing Catholic who is leading in battleground states like Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

The "nuns" cheered along with the audience when Trump started talking about the Hunter Biden "Ukraine, crack, and sex" scandal.
