'Concerned' Evangelicals to Confront Trump Over Stormy Daniels Allegations: Report
A group of evangelical leaders is reportedly planning to confront President Donald Trump about the payouts his attorney made to adult film star Stormy Daniels.
NPR reports that some evangelical leaders have scheduled a June meeting with Trump to talk about a variety of topics — and they’re likely to broach the subject of Trump’s multiple extramarital affairs.
“There’s things that are like fingernails on the chalkboard to people of faith,” one source told NPR about Trump’s alleged fling with Stormy Daniels. “That’s not who we are; that’s not a ‘fruit of the spirit’; that’s not leading with humility.”
Another leader of a religious organization told NPR some evangelicals are “very concerned” and warned that the president's behavior could dampen evangelical voter enthusiasm for the 2018 midterm elections.
“If these folks don’t turn out in record numbers in 2018, it’s gonna be a long night for Republicans,” Christian activist Ralph Reed told NPR.
