Dobson Endorses Trump for President
Dr. James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family released this statement today regarding his endorsement of Donald Trump for President of the United States of America, “I have decided to endorse Donald J. Trump for President of the United States, not only because of my great concern about Hillary Clinton. I am supporting Mr. Trump primarily because I believe he is the most capable candidate to lead the United States of America in this complicated hour. I am also very enthusiastic by the selection of Gov. Mike Pence as Mr. Trump’s running mate. Together, I believe they will make America great again.
“Mr. Trump has been unwavering in his commitment to issues that are important to evangelicals such as myself. In particular, I have been heartened by his pledge to appoint conservative Supreme Court justices, preserve religious liberty, rebuild the military, and defend the sanctity of human life. On the issue of abortion, I choose not to evaluate him based on his past position but rather on what he says are his current convictions. I believe God can change the hearts and minds of people and I celebrate when they support principles of righteousness.
“Without a doubt, my decision to endorse Mr. Trump has been influenced by the way his children speak of him as a father. As a psychologist and a family counselor, I have spent my life equipping and resourcing families. One thing I have observed is that you cannot make a “child talk about his or her parents the way Donald Trump¹s children speak of him. That is one of a man¹s most significant affirmations.
“Of course, I make this endorsement in my personal capacity and not on behalf of any organization. Though I can tell you most evangelicals I know have decided for various reasons that they will really have only have one choice for president, and that is Donald J. Trump. I believe it’s a good choice. America needs strong and competent leadership.”
