Donald Trump: The Self-Proclaimed New Savior of Christianity

Donald Trump: The Self-Proclaimed New Savior of Christianity May 22, 2015

As part of his ongoing attempt to remain relevant, Donald Trump is again pretending to contemplate running for President. Why anyone sees this as anything but another chapter of “Trump Jumps the Shark,” is beyond me.

Nonetheless, in a recent appearance on CBN’s: The Brody File, the Donald made a hilarious statement, that I just have to share. When asked about the concerns of many conservative Christians about the “deterioration of culture,” and the “marriage issue,” Trump bloviated about the oppression of Christians in Syria and Europe and then stated:

“So you tell me about religious liberty and freedom. 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.” (My emphasis added.)

Here’s the video:

 

What? Really?

Now, there are many reasons to be concerned about how Christians are being treated, especially in the Middle East, but I don’t buy for one minute that even the most extreme religious wackos will buy that crock that Trump will be the Christian’s greatest representative.

That being said, and now that I think about it, the cross is really just a lower case “t.”

Hmm… I can see the logo now: T
