Evangelicals Have Come Under Fire from Donald Trump – Could He Be Aiming to Lose 2024? There won’t be a single moment in Donald Trump’s decline that historians can single out.

But people will undoubtedly remember his remarks against evangelicals from a few months ago for years to come.

The disgraced former president questioned his most important allies’ commitment.

Earlier this year, during an interview with the Real America’s Voice show “The Water Cooler,” Trump was questioned about why evangelical leaders were reluctant to endorse him in his reelection campaign.

The former president responded, “I don’t really care,” in an interview with David Brody of the Trump-aligned right-wing news and opinion network. “It’s a betrayal of trust,”
Donald Trump has forgotten that loyalty must be won by deeds and is not a given for elected people.

According to reports, even his closest advisers have accused him of alienating one of his most valuable vote constituencies.
Despite a decline in recent years, evangelical Christians remain a key voting constituency for Republicans. This was demonstrated in Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’s recent reelection, which he won with a landslide thanks to the evangelical Christian vote.

This demographic also turned out to be crucial for Trump in 2016, much like its low turnout in 2000 nearly gave Al Gore the victory over George W. Bush. Thanks to evangelicals, Bush was comfortably reelected four years later.

Evangelicals might not support Joe Biden as president, or any Democrat for that matter. Still, if the presidential election of 2020 is any indication, Trump would need every vote he can get. As a result, if evangelicals decide to abstain completely from voting, as many did in 2000, Trump won’t be able to make up the gap with another group.
Ignoring any bloc is too much of a numbers game in politics. But in his interview, Trump launched an offensive on the evangelicals rather than attempting to be reconciliatory or build bridges.

The former president stated there are many political betrayals since Donald Trump has done more for the “right to life” movement than anyone else.

“I put three Supreme Court justices who all voted, and they got something they’ve been fighting for 64 years or many, many years,” stated Trump. And no one believed they could win. They triumphed in the case of Roe v. Wade. Finally, they succeeded.

Trump needs a history or math lesson, as the famous Roe v. Wade decision of the U.S. Supreme Court, in which the Court determined that the Constitution of the United States guaranteed the right to an abortion, was made on January 22, 1973, or 50 years ago this month.
