According to sources from Fox News, Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump has faith — or at least he is trying to convince Republican voters that he does. Trump made a new effort Saturday to show he has support within the faith community, a key part of the GOP voting bloc he will need to help win the party nomination. At a press conference before his rally in Norcross, Ga., Trump was joined by several dozen Evangelical and African-American church leaders in a bid to explain why religious officials are behind his candidacy. “I don’t know what type of legislator he would be,” said the Rev. Dr. Darrell Scott, a minister from Cleveland, Ohio. “But I know one thing, he is a hell of a chief executive. He’s a heck of a guy.” Scott, who was sporting a “Make America Great Again” hat, met with Trump in late September and with other religious figures to discuss the billionaire businessman’s ties to faith.
Donald Trump has said that the Bible is very important to him and even showed it off to a crowd at an event last month hosted by the Family Research Council. Not all everyone is swayed by Mr. Trump. In fact “Some evangelical leaders believe that Christians are abandoning their values if they support Trump,” Robert Jeffress, a pastor with the First Baptist Dallas in Texas, told FoxNews.com. “I think that is much too harsh of a judgment.” This isn’t the first time Donald Trump has tried to make his “Faith” public.
Earlier this month, Charisma reported how Paula White set up an invitation-only meeting between Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and evangelical pastors. That meeting happened this week—and plenty of Pentecostals were there to lay hands on the billionaire, make declarations over his life and pray. Beyond Paula White, also present were Kenneth and Gloria Copeland, Jentezen Franklin, David Jeremiah, Jan Crouch, Steve Munsey, Jews for Jesus Rabbi Kirt Schneider, Bishop George Bloomer, Bishop Darrell Scott and Clarence McClendon. At the end of the day it will be your decision at the voting poll whether or not you believe Mr. Trump is the man for the job!
