Trump let an audience vote if non-Christian conservatives should be kicked out of a rally
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump openly joked about booting non-Christians from his rallies after singling them out during two campaign stops this past week.
Appearing in Council Bluffs, Iowa, as he rolled out his Iowa Christian Conservatives for Trump coalition Wednesday, which the campaign said included more than 650 religious leaders from the state, Trump first held up a sign with a blue background reading, “Christian Conservatives For Trump. Make America Great Again.”
Then the Republican presidential nominee boasted that he won more support from the evangelical Christians during the GOP primary than anyone had predicted.
“We have our Christian conservatives for Trump today. And they’re in the room. Let’s go. That’s what we want. That’s beautiful,” Trump told the cheering crowd.
“Raise your hands, Christian conservatives everybody,” he said, as most of the hands in the draped-off convention center went up. Then, he asked those who are not to raise their hands before jokingly questioning whether he should “keep them in the room.”
