On the same day that Trump earned the endorsement of evangelical leader Jerry Falwell Jr., Jeb Bush expressed doubt over whether Donald Trump is a Christian, remarking he merely views faith as another political tool
In the wake of Donald Trump’s endorsement by evangelical leader and Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr., Republican rival Jeb Bush had some strong words for the real estate mogul and his faith, calling him a “flip-flopper."
"Trump views all this not from a position of his faith, he views it all as politics. I think faith goes way beyond politics,” he said to reporters following his campaign rally.
When asked by reporters if Bush thinks that Trump is a Christian, he said that he doesn’t.
“No, I don’t know what he is," he said. "I don’t think he has the kind of relationship he says he has if he can’t explain it any way that shows he is serious about it.”
While Bush admitted that Falwell’s endorsement was good for Trump, he questioned how it came to be.
“For a guy who has stated he has never sought forgiveness, it’s hard to imagine how someone who is a strong believer would embrace that idea. There may be other reasons that Mr Falwell is supporting him,” Bush said.
