Less than 24 hours after Donald Trump defended Planned Parenthood at the Republican Debate, the well-known Evangelical pastor, Robert Jeffress, takes the stage with Donald Trump, claiming that he knows Donald Trump personally and that he knows Donald Trump is truly pro-life, and would be a great friend in the White House. Keep in mind this is the same Robert Jeffress that called the pope a “fine Christian man” recently, and who regularly engages in political rallying on Fox News, and other outlets.

The second thing I know about Donald trump is that he is truly pro-life. I have talked to him in Trump Tower. He believes in protecting the unborn. That is an issue we as Christians care about, and I’ll tell you what, some of you who say, well, I don’t know if his pro-life conversion was real, let me tell you something, Hillary Clinton doesn’t claim any pro-life conversion. if you go for Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders, there is no doubt you’re going to have the most pro-abortion president in history.
But here is what I finally know about Donald Trump. Donald Trump cares about and loves evangelical Christians.
You know, one time when Ronald Reagan was running for president of the United States, the first time, he met with a group of evangelical leaders, and he said, although you can’t endorse me, I want you to know I endorse you. And I have met — I have met with Mr. Trump on several occasions, and I can tell you from personal experience, if Donald Trump is elected president of the United States, we who are evangelical Christians are going to have a true friend in the White House. God bless Donald Trump!
