Evangelicals will continue to support President Donald Trump despite pornstar scandal
Pastor Robert Jeffress, a member of the evangelical advisory board of President Trump, came out to defend Donald recently regarding his relationship with Stormy Daniels , an actress who stars in adult films. It was alleged Donald Trump had an affair with Stormy Daniels a couple of months after Melania, his third wife, gave birth to their son Barron.
Pastor stands his ground despite allegations
According to the pastor’s latest statements, he called the allegations to be completely irrelevant, especially to the evangelicals who support the President.
When interviewed on Fox News, the pastor said, “Evangelicals know they’re not compromising their beliefs in order to support this great president.” He said that despite the evangelicals supporting Donald Trump, they still follow their commandment, which doesn’t allow them to have sex with pornstars.
Jeffress added that the evangelicals were aware of the fact that Donald Trump wasn’t perfect when they voted for him. The reason why they picked Donald Trump was due to his powerful leadership and policies.
During the interview with Fox News, Juan Williams, their political analyst, said that Trump allegedly paid $130,000 to Stormy Daniels to buy her silence. Last month, Michael Cohen, Trump’s lawyer, admitted that they reached an agreement with Daniels so that she wouldn’t go public with her sexual encounter.
Cohen also got a temporary restraining order against Daniels, with the help of a private investigator, to silence her. Despite all his efforts, Daniels tried to nullify the nondisclosure agreement by filing a lawsuit against the President, stating that it doesn’t hold true as he didn’t sign it.
Pastor defends Donald’s policies
Religious people who support Donald Trump always claim moral high grounds. However, when confronted with facts that Donald Trump violated a lot of religious rules, they ignore those statements.

When Juan asked Jeffress about the sexual encounter allegations, he said it doesn’t matter even if it is true because of Donald’s issues and policies.
Jeffress has been visiting the White House since Donald Trump became the President. Jeffress is known for his violent comments. For starters, he said the NFL players who were protesting racial injustice should be happy someone didn’t shoot them in the head. He said that Donald Trump has support from God, should he “take out” Kim Jong Un, the North Korean dictator. He has also ranted against Mormons, Catholics, Muslims, and gays.
