Donald Trump Gripes About Shedding Ungrateful Catholic, Jewish Voters On Name With Non secular Advisers

An irritated Donald Trump complained in a campaign phone call with religious leaders about the loss of votes from ungrateful Catholics and Jews in the 2020 elections – which he repeatedly insisted on having won for no reason.

“I’ve done a lot for the Catholics. I’m a bit surprised that we didn’t do better with the Catholic vote, ”Trump said on Thursday’s taped call (above) initiated by his controversial right-wing televangelist advisor Paula White.

“I think we have about 50% of the [Catholic] vote, ”Trump said on the conference call organized by the religious group Intercessors for America and first reported by the Religious News Service.

“And yet we did a lot for the Catholic vote. So we have to talk to them. We’re going to have to meet with the Catholics, ”added an angry Trump, which seemed a clear sign that he plans to run for president again. He once said he was “very optimistic that we will be back”.

He was also angry with Jewish voters.

“Look what I did with the message in Jerusalem and what I did with so many other things … Israel has never had a better friend, and yet I got 25% of the vote,” Trump said. “I think they need to get together. There needs to be a little more unity with the religious groups that are all represented in this appeal. “

White and Trump announced its new National Faith Advisory Board of religious leaders – including members of the Appeal – which is a clone of Trump’s White House Faith and Opportunity Initiative. An email to the group on Monday promised it would fight President Joe Biden’s “anti-religious agenda”, the Jewish Daily Forward reported.

Trump also struck Biden’s record for religion. “A lot has happened in terms of belief and religion, and these are not good things …” said Trump. He gave no information.

Trump praised the 5-4 Supreme Court decision the previous day not to block the draconian crackdown on new abortions in Texas. “Even last night you are making some very powerful decisions, more powerful than anyone would have thought,” he said.

He also complained that Covid-19 – “or the China virus as I like to call it” – was “out of control”. It “is now setting records” (in Republican anti-masking states), he added, apparently forgetting the more than 400,000 Americans who died under its supervision.

During a question-and-answer session with Trump, he was asked about his own religious beliefs.

He replied vaguely, “Everything is based on God – it’s so important. God is so important to the success of what we do. “

Robert Morris, pastor of Gateway Church in Dallas, who attended the Maskless COVID Superspreader event at the White House last year celebrating Amy Coney Barrett’s affirmation in the Supreme Court, ended with a prayer.

“I pray for the Americans who voted wrong,” he said.

Listen to the entire call above. It refers to the Catholic (and later the Jewish) vote starting at 36:40.
