TIME TO REPENT: Evangelical Leaders Quietly Dumping Trump

Donald Trump’s bid for president in 2024 is looking more and more like a hopeless wish than an actual reality. While more and more conservatives are dumping Trump in the next presidential election, some have always seemed to stick by his side. The evangelical crowd has backed Trump since he announced his first presidential run in 2015. But that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore.

“There’s a lot of people who share a lot of our similar thoughts but don’t want to go on record,” Bob Vander Plaats, one of America’s top evangelical thought leaders, who hesitantly backed Trump in 2016, told vanity fair. “You can see that it’s almost a silent majority right now,” he says. Everett Piper, a Washington Times columnist and the former president of an evangelical university, published a post-midterm polemic last month arguing that Trump is “hurting…not helping” American evangelicals. “The take-home of this past week is simple: Donald Trump has to go,” Piper added. “If he’s our nominee in 2024, we will get destroyed.” Earlier this month, televangelist James Robison, who served as a spiritual adviser to Trump, likened the former president to a “little elementary schoolchild” while addressing the National Association of Christian Lawmakers. Another major evangelical leader, who requested anonymity, tells me there’s “no doubt” that if Trump wins the primary, Republicans will “get crushed in the general.”
