Anti-Trump conservative Charlie Sykes said on CNN Friday that it’s “stunning” and “remarkable” that Christians still support Donald Trump.
Sykes, appearing on “Anderson Cooper 360.” said, “It is stunning and it continues to be remarkable. Of course, binary choice is not between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, it’s between Donald Trump and, I don’t know a person of good character.”
“One of the things that has changed is this attitude. I’m old enough to believe when Christians believed character mattered and it was relevant to their personal persona. Now in the era of Donald Trump, Evangelical Christians according to the polls are least likely to think that that matters,” he said.
Sykes also tried comparing the president to Jesus Christ, saying, “This thing is between ‘what would Jesus do?’ and ‘what is Donald Trump doing?’ I would submit they’re not the same thing.”
Trump spoke to Christians on Friday, saying, “I pledged that in a Trump administration, our nation’s religious heritage would be cherished, protected and defended like you have never seen before.”
