Will The Immigration Issue Make The Evangelical Religious Right Dump Trump? 6/21/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

If I tried to explain all the fake news, lies, spin and the actual facts on the current immigration issue, this would probably be a four hour podcast. So I’m not even gonna attempt to explain and analyze all the misreporting, but you can probably guess the media outlets that are spinning and lying.

I do want to discuss an article on TheHill.com that discusses the division between Trump and the Christian right over the family separation issue because it’s important. If Trump loses evangelicals, that’s a big league problem for Republicans in November and Trump in 2020.

Some of his biggest Christian support including the Rev. Franklin Graham and Ralph Reed have offered criticism of the POTUS on the issue. While there are a lot of evangelicals not in favor of Trump’s hardline stance on the issue, I don’t believe he should panic yet and worry that they’re gonna abandon him.

They’re upset yes, but the only way Trump will lose his conservative Christian base is if he doesn’t fix the problem, it grows, and he starts going against major campaign promises and the MAGA agenda. If he does that, then he’s politically done.

Trump has done a lot for the evangelical community including defending life and getting a pro-life judge on the Supreme Court, so I don’t believe they’re ready to dump him yet because they understand that even though they disagree on this issue, they’re still better off with Trump than with almost anyone else in the White House.
