May none but honest and wise men ever rule under this [White House] roof

A NYTimes letter to the editor points out a serious omission in Trump's use of a John Adam's quote:

To the Editor:

Re “Trump Has a Stark Warning for Pastors” (news article, Aug. 29):

In the public portion of President Trump’s remarks to evangelical pastors in the White House State Dining Room on Monday night (before the press was ushered out and he got down to business, pleading with them to get out the Republican vote for the midterms), he spoke in “high-minded tones,” and even quoted from an inscription of John Adams’s words above the fireplace: “I pray heaven to bestow the best of blessings on this house.”

I guess he didn’t want to read the rest of it: “May none but honest and wise men ever rule under this roof.”
