Donald Trump said he was “very proud” of his Presbyterian faith and contended that if he decided to run and ultimately be elected president, he would be the “greatest representative” Christians have seen “in a long time.”
“As you know, I’m protestant, I’m Presbyterian. Most people don’t know that. They have no idea. And I’m proud of it. I’m very proud of it,” Trump told David Brody of CBN News last weekend.
One of the things I learned this weekend being in Iowa, I met with a lot of national security experts and everything else, that if you’re a Christian living in Syria, you can’t come into this country. And yet, if you are a Muslim living in Syria, who are not under attack, they can come in.
Trump was referring to recent reports that Christians have been trying to flee the Middle East for the U.S. unsuccessfully.
Sister Diana Momeka, an Iraqi nun, was denied a visa by the U.S. consulate in Erbil to come to the United States last month because she did not have “ties that will compel you to return to your home country after your travel to the United States,” according to The Blaze. But the decision was overturned, and Momeka visited.
“The Christians are being treated horribly because we have nobody to represent the Christians,” Trump added. “Believe me, if I run and I win, I will be the greatest representative of the Christians they’ve had in a long time.”
Trump has flirted with a possible presidential run for months. He announced in March that he formed a presidential exploratory committee, the first time he has ever done so.
At the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) the week before, the real estate mogul told Western Journalism that “the country needs help.”
It’s in such trouble. It is in such a mess. We have a leader that doesn’t know how to lead and he doesn’t have the right ideas. And I think he’s got his own ideas, either that or he’s totally incompetent. And we have a country that needs help and it needs help quickly and badly.
