Trump religious adviser defends 's---hole' comments

Source: The Hill




BY JOHN BOWDEN - 01/12/18 11:45 AM EST

Pastor Robert Jeffress defended President Trump's reported remark referring to Haiti and some African nations as "shithole countries," saying in a statement that the president got the "sentiment" right.

The Texas evangelical megachurch pastor said Friday that Trump was "right on target" when he reportedly questioned why the U.S. accepts immigrants from "shithole countries" during a bipartisan meeting Thursday with lawmakers on immigration reform.




Trump's comments sparked a wave of bipartisan criticism across Capitol Hill, and an initial statement from the White House Thursday night did not deny the remarks, saying only that Trump would continue to "fight" for Americans while other lawmakers fought for "foreign countries."

“Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people,” White House spokesman Raj Shah said.

1. This is why christianity can have no credibility.

Individual christians who live the life required by their leader, Jesus, maybe, but the religion is done.
