Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump vows to be the greatest representative of all Christians
According to Trump, “the Christians are being treated horribly because we have nobody to represent the Christians.”
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump vows that he will be the “greatest representative of Christians they’ve had in a long time” if he wins the race to the White House.
Trump, who himself is a Presbyterian, made the pledge to Christians while he was visiting Iowa in May and addressed Christian persecution and religious freedom in the world, the Blaze reports. At the time Trump hadn’t officially announced his candidacy.
The business mogul said that “the Christians are being treated horribly because we have nobody to represent the Christians.” He continued: “Believe me, if I run and I win, I will be the greatest representative of the Christians they’ve had in a long time.”

In an interview with CBN News, Trump also condemned the Obama administration’s immigration policies, which have been labeled among conservatives as “anti-Christian.”
He said that “if you’re a Christian living in Syria, you can’t come into this country (the United States). Yet, if you are a Muslim living in Syria, who are not under attack, they can come in.”
Lately, Trump has been under fire for his remarks about Mexicans. He has said that Mexican immigrants to the United States are “criminals, drug dealers and rapists,” and accused the Mexican government of “forcing their most unwanted people into the United States.” He has also said that Mexicans are responsible for “tremendous infectious disease…pouring across the border.”
