Ahead of June 21st Meeting with Clergy, Nation’s Leading Evangelicals Scrutinize Trump’s Character in New Video

 

New York, NY -- In a new video released by Faith in Public Life Action Fund, three of the nation’s leadingevangelicals condemn presumptive nominee Donald Trump for his racist, sexist and xenophobic rhetoric and compel to him to seek forgiveness for his actions.

 

In the video, Trump tells CNN’s Anderson Cooper that he does not need to repent when he hasn’t made any mistakes.

 

“Here’s a man who holds up a Bible one day, and calls a lady a ‘bimbo’ the next. It’s just beyond me,” said Pastor Max Lucado, a prominent evangelical pastor and best-selling writer.

 

Trump is scheduled to speak in New York City on Tuesday, June 21st, with conservative evangelical leaders in an attempt to gain their endorsement.
 

“We can’t sit idly by and allow a presidential nominee to suggest that we need a ban on Muslims entering this country or to suggest that a federal judge is disqualified because of this ethnic background,” said Dr. Gabriel Salguero, founder of the National Latino Evangelical Coalition (NaLEC).
