Will Evangelicals Abandon Trump for Calling American War Dead “Losers”? I Doubt it.

Excerpt from the Atlantic:

When President Donald Trump canceled a visit to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in 2018, he blamed rain for the last-minute decision, saying that “the helicopter couldn’t fly” and that the Secret Service wouldn’t drive him there.

Neither claim was true.

Trump rejected the idea of the visit because he feared his hair would become disheveled in the rain, and because he did not believe it important to honor American war dead, according to four people with firsthand knowledge of the discussion that day. In a conversation with senior staff members on the morning of the scheduled visit, Trump said, “Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.” In a separate conversation on the same trip, Trump referred to the more than 1,800 marines who lost their lives at Belleau Wood as “suckers” for getting killed.

Gary: If any Democrat had said this, he or she would have been burned in effigy as a despicable traitor in front of every evangelical church in the country, but what will evangelicals do when President Trump says it? My guess: Nothing. They will still vote for him in droves in November. Why?

Answer: He opposes abortion.
