Gohmert: Evangelicals Should Worry Trump Will Return to Lifelong Liberal Principles


Thursday on Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show,” Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) warned evangelicals against accepting Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s comments on his faith at face value.

According to Gohmert, Trump could be saying what he needs to say to win and that he could go back on those remarks and disappoint.

In discussing Trump’s past statements about not asking God for forgiveness, Gohmert said, “That really is amazing that evangelicals would say well clearly he has never admitted what Jesus said — you know you got to admit that you’re a sinner saved by the grace of Jesus and if you have never admitted that than it’s amazing that so many evangelicals will say this is the guy. I do understand where they are coming from though. We have seen the country do such a huge about face in such a short time so that now people are not just persecuted but prosecuted for their Christian beliefs.”

He added, “I love a lot of the things that Donald Trump is saying but then you worry since he is a deal maker and he knows how to win — is he doing what he needs to do to win now, and then going to turn around and go back to the principles he stood on for nearly all of his life in the general election? And then evangelicals have nowhere else to go at that point.”
