Trump slams evangelicals who won’t endorse his 2024 run: ‘That’s a sign of great disloyalty’

Speaking on the Real America’s Voice network this week, former President Donald Trump lashed out at evangelical leaders who he’s deemed to be disloyal to his brand, specifically due to the fact that they’ve yet to endorse his 2024 presidential run, Mediaite reports.

Trump was especially upset with Texas megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress, who said he’ll support Trump if he’s nominated but stopped short of endorsing him.

“That’s a sign of disloyalty. There’s a great disloyalty in the world of politics and that’s a sign of disloyalty,” the former president told The Water Cooler host David Brody.

Trump claimed he doesn’t actually care about getting endorsements from evangelicals, but said he deserving since he’s — in his words — has done more for evangelicals than an other president.

“Nobody has ever done more for right to life than Donald Trump,” Trump said, speaking of himself in the third person. He also slammed evangelicals for not doing enough to support his preferred candidates in the midterms.

“A lot of them didn’t fight or weren’t really around to fight, and it did energize the Democrats. But a lot of the people that wanted and fought for years to get it, they sort of … they were there protesting and doing what they could have done,” he said.
