Evangelical Leader: I Believe ‘Baby Christian’ Trump ‘Really Made a Commitment’ to Jesus

trump bibleDespite being not your typical Republican, Donald Trump swears he’s a very religious man who has a great relationship with God. Evangelicals like Jerry Falwell Jr. and Tony Perkins have thrown in with Trump, to the frustration of their fellow Christian conservatives.

But now Focus on the Family founder and major Evangelical leader has given The Donald his blessing.

Dr. James Dobson was one of many Evangelicals Trump met with in New York this week, and he spoke with Michael Anthony about how encouraged he is by Trump’s faith:

“He did accept a relationship with Christ. I know the person who led him to Christ. And that’s fairly recent.”

Dobson is confident that Trump has “really made a commitment, but he’s a baby Christian.”

He acknowledged that Trump just doesn’t know how to speak the language

But Dobson concluded, “You gotta cut him some slack, he didn’t grow up like we did. I think there’s hope for him.”
