A high-profile Baptist pastor argues that the likelihood of more liberal judges being appointed to the Supreme Court should be enough reason for conservative Christians to back Donald Trump come November.
It’s on to the general election after Hillary Clinton clinched the Democratic nomination for president in Tuesday’s primaries. So what does Donald Trump need to do to take her on in November?
They’re already at each other hammer and tongs:
Clinton: “Donald Trump is temperamentally unfit to be president and commander.”
Trump: “The Clintons have turned the politics of personal enrichment into an art form for themselves.”
While it may seem that Donald Trump has the upper hand in a battle of personal insults, supporter Dr. Robert Jeffress says Trump has to be careful to stay on message.
“I talked to him this week about it,” the pastor tells OneNewsNow. “He’s going to continue to talk about those issues Americans care about most: the economy, national security – and for those of us who are conservative Christians, conservative Supreme Court picks.”
Jeffress, senior pastor of First Baptist Church-Dallas, acknowledges Trump hasn’t been the perfect candidate and that some of his off-the-cuff remarks have been unfortunate. But Clinton, says Jeffress, is vulnerable to attacks on her character as a person and her liberal worldviews on marriage, life, and big government.
“People are going to realize, especially if you are a conservative, there is no choice in this election except to vote for Donald Trump,” he states.
And, he says, the stakes could not be higher.
“I think the next president, whoever it is, over the next four to eight years will make up to four Supreme Court picks,” Jeffress emphasizes. “And I think Donald Trump is absolutely resolute on not wavering on this issue and nominating true conservatives to the court.”
Last month, Trump released a list of 11 names he would consider as potential nominees to the Supreme Court. Several conservative legal minds complimented that list.
RealClearPolitics, in its most recent compilation of polls (taken before this week’s primaries), shows Clinton with a two-point lead over Trump.
