In this paper I argue that presentism has a problem accounting for the truth of statements whose truth conditions seem to require there be relations that hold between present and non-present objects. I motivate the problem and then examine several strategies for dealing with the problem. I argue that no solution is forthcoming, and this presents a prima facie problem for presentism.
