I’m Ready To Give Power Back To The Church – Donald Trump

By Mathew Ogunsina

In a restrictive interview with The Brody File, Donald Trump needs to see Christian ministers talk all the more strongly from the podium in light of the fact that as he sees it, “the congregation needs to have more power.” He’s alluding to the entry of The Johnson Amendment in which the U.S. impose code was adjusted so that assessment excluded associations (like houses of worship in numerous examples) would not be permitted to embrace or restrict political applicants.

Trump says the federal government should never have done that. “They’ve taken a lot of the power away from the church. I want to give power back to the church. … Christianity is really being chopped; little by little it’s being taken away.”

Trump continues: “I want pastors and ministers to be able and get up and speak on behalf of Christianity, and they’re afraid to do it right now because they don’t want to lose their tax exempt status. We will take care of that.”

The Brody File has interviewed Trump numerous times, and this is the first time he’s ever mentioned the Johnson amendment as it relates to pastors speaking out from the pulpit.

Trump leads with evangelicals in South Carolina. His no-nonsense strong approach is attractive to some evangelicals. In public, he can be rough around the edges for sure but his narrative is of a guy who gets things done.

His brand is accomplishment and so when he says he’s going to “take care of the evangelicals” and start winning again for Christianity, many people believe him at face value. It’s a great “trump” card to have in your political hip pocket.
