Comments on Trump
As this election season heats up Christian leaders are becoming more outspoken regarding the election and rightly so.
Franklin Graham responded to the comments Donald Trump made towards women 11 years ago when he updated his Facebook page with the following comments,
Dr. Michael Brown of Askdrbrown.com condemned Trump's comments and said he doesn't feel the apology was strong enough.
I'm not at all surprised by Donald Trump's vulgar and disgusting comments from 2005. What concerns me is his response to those comments today, specifically his very weak apology. The right response would be, "I'm mortified by those comments and find them as offensive and inexcusable as you do. That's the man I used to be, not the man I am. I absolutely repudiate everything about those words and fully understand how offensive and degrading they are. Those who know me well know that I left that lifestyle years ago." His failure to do so speaks volumes -- and I do not write this to bash but with sadness. (One hour after posting this, I just saw Trump's video apology, which is far better than his initial tweet.)
Rick Joyner of Morningstar Ministries who has been vocal in his support of Trump this pre-election season believes Trump can still win and was not surprised about this tape from his past:
Lance Wallnau also responded with a Facebook video where he interpreted the events as God humbling Trump, which actually qualifies Trump.
