Letter to the Editor: Here’s why Christians are loyal to Trump


I would like to answer a question that was asked recently in a letter to the editor: “How can Christians be loyal to Trump?”

I believe it is because he is loyal to so many things that are very important to the great majority of Christians – life, love for America, the Constitution, strong support of Christian freedoms, police, military, veterans and Israel. I could add jobs, tax cuts, energy independence, border security and more.

Sadly, the previous administration was very weak in all of these areas.

I agree that our president is not perfect, but neither are we. We are all sinners, saved by the grace of God. Jesus said, “Let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone.” John 8:7.

All presidents make promises during their campaigns – -most don’t keep them – but President Trump has been keeping his promises, even recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and moving our embassy there; and selecting judges who will follow the Constitution, not make laws.

The answer to the question is very simple. Christians are loyal to President Donald Trump because he is loyal to them.
