Donald Trump Reaches Out to Evangelicals, Promising Antiabortion Judicial Nominees

Trump is courting the evangelical vote noting that his list of possible Supreme Court judges are pro-life.

Seeking to build new bridges to religious conservatives, Donald Trump Friday pledged to nominate antiabortion justices to the Supreme Court and to protect Christians’ religious freedom in a carefully scripted speech to leading evangelical activists.

“We will restore faith to its proper mantle in society,” Mr. Trump told the annual conference of the Faith and Freedom Coalition in Washington, D.C. “We will respect and defend Christian Americans.”

Although the bombastic New Yorker, a thrice-married billionaire who used to support abortion rights, isn't a natural fit for many social conservatives, Mr. Trump drew leverage from the fact that many in the audience cared more than anything about who will pick the next justices on the Supreme Court.

He pointed to what was perhaps his most important step of his campaign toward easing concerns on the religious right: The list he released last month of the judges with strong conservative credentials whom he would consider for the vacancy on the Supreme Court. “By the way, these judges are all pro-life,” he said. Mrs. Clinton, by contrast “will appoint radical judges,” he said.

1. Lol..I saw some of his new shtick

 

Jesus this..Christian that....moral outrage galore.
Don't know how to insert images here yet. The picture of Jimmy Swaggart tears in his eyes saying "I have sinned" after being busted in Indio with a hooker comes to mind.

What a phony Trump is.

4. Just anyway the wind blows

He has no idea what he really believes. It's just whatever he thinks people want to hear.

Narcisstic sociopath.

5. Evangelicals


Someone should provide them with a list of bible verses and print along side them any number of quotes from trump himself that are in direct contrast.

Then ask them if they will vote for him simply because he will have (R) by his name.
