Donald Trump has shown that is not afraid to say what needs to be said. First it was the red-hot issue of illegal immigration, on which Trump took on Obama, Mexico and the entire leftist media to tell the truth about illegal alien criminals plaguing America.
Now as Conservative Tribune reports, the billionaire, television celebrity and presidential candidate has a straightforward message for Christians:
“The Christians are being treated horribly because we have nobody to represent the Christians. Believe me, if I run and I win, I will be the greatest representative of the Christians they’ve had in a long time,” Trump said in a recent interview.
Christians have faced persecution in the Middle East by Islamic extremists, and here at home by liberals bent on stripping away the freedoms of religion and expression.
Christians need a champion. But the other U.S. presidential hopefuls have largely failed to address directly the state of Christianity in the world. Trump is filling that void.
In the same interview, Trump criticized the Obama administration for its anti-Christian immigration policies. He exposed Obama for allowing Muslims who live in Syria to come to the United States while blocking the Christians in Syria.
“I learned this weekend … that if you’re a Christian living in Syria you can’t come into this country. Yet, if you are a Muslim living in Syria, who are not under attack, they can come in. We have Christians being beheaded all over the world by ISIS. In Syria and in Iraq, in particular, those Christians can’t come into this country,” he said.
And with such comments, the Trump bandwagon continues to take on passengers. David Brody of CBN is encouraging evangelicals to support the business magnate:
“Trump’s ability to cut through the clutter and paint the world in ‘absolutes’ attracts quite a few evangelical voters. Remember, evangelicals hold true to their ‘biblical absolutes,’ so to see a person like Trump let it rip and tell it like it is becomes a somewhat endearing quality to some evangelicals. Trump takes hits for his boldness, and evangelicals take hits from society for their biblical boldness, too,” stated Brody.
In other words, while other candidates remain cautious in the face of Obama’s outrageous moves, seemingly more afraid of media reaction than of Obama’s dangerous actions, Trump says what needs to be said, let the chips falls where they may.
He is certainly not the most eloquent speaker, but he speaks plainly and truthfully. As a result Trump is capturing the imagination of Americans, making him an early front-runner — and the media furious reaction underscores their fear of that connection. We will see as the campaign progresses how well he can hold both his strong words, and his lead.
