Trump says he’s fulfilled his promises to Christians, but he really means white evangelicals

By Eugene Scott

President Trump promised that if he got to the White House, he would restore conservative Christians to the place of prominence in America that they believed had been lost during the Obama administration.

Months before 80 percent of white evangelicals voted for Trump, he told attendees at the 2016 Values Voter Summit:

So let me say this right up front: A Trump administration, our Christian heritage will be cherished, protected, defended, like you’ve never seen before. Believe me. I believe it. And you believe it. And you know it. You know it.

And when he returned to the gathering this weekend, he told the group that in less than a year in the White House, he has delivered on that promise.

I pledged that in a Trump administration our nation’s religious heritage would be cherished, protected and defended like you have never seen before. That’s what’s happening. That’s what’s happening. You see it. Every day you’re reading it.

  1. @OP – President Trump promised that if he got to the White House,
    he would restore conservative Christians
    to the place of prominence in America
    that they believed had been lost during the Obama administration.

    And when he returned to the gathering this weekend,
    he told the group that in less than a year in the White House,
    he has delivered on that promise.

    It seems that delivering his anti-Muslim agenda, is not as simple as Trump’s mind!

    US President Donald Trump’s latest bid to impose travel restrictions on citizens from eight countries entering the US has suffered a court defeat.

    A federal judge slapped a temporary restraining order on the open-ended ban before it could take effect this week.

    The policy targets Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Chad and North Korea, as well as some Venezuelan officials.

    Previous iterations of the ban targeted six Muslim-majority countries, and were widely referred to as a “Muslim ban”.

    The state of Hawaii sued in Honolulu to block Mr Trump’s third version, which was set to go into effect early on Wednesday.

    Hawaii argued in court documents that the revised policy was fulfilling Mr Trump’s campaign promise for “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States”, despite the addition of North Korea and Venezuela.

    It also argued the president did not have the powers under federal immigration law to impose such restrictions.

    US District Judge Derrick Watson, who blocked Mr Trump’s last travel ban in March, issued the new restraining order.

    In Hawaii, Judge Watson decided that the new policy “suffers from precisely the same maladies as its predecessor”.

    He said “it lacks sufficient findings that the entry of more than 150 million nationals from six [of the] specified countries would be ‘detrimental to the interests of the United States'”.

    His decision temporarily blocks the ban on all targeted countries except North Korea and Venezuela.

    The ban is also facing court challenges from Maryland, Washington state, Massachusetts, California, Oregon and New York.

    He also claimed that criticism of his white evangelical bias,
    was “a war on Christmas”!

    Quite understandable, when the Lord of Misrule, is accompanied by the Abbot of Unreason, at the Festival of Fools 🙂
