There are 40 comments on the The Columbus Dispatch story from Nov 7, 2017, titled Why do white evangelicals love Trump?. In it, The Columbus Dispatch reports that:

Is that why 95% of blacks voted for Obama and came to the polls in record numbers only to disappear again when no blacks were running?

A sinner Trump is, he has made no claim to be sinless. Yet Hillary and scum like Johnny welfare Kasich claim perfection and being Christlike while stealing from those that produce.

According to you, Jesus hates his enemies, only rich people make it to heaven and we should build walls to keep out people from other lands. I wonder if the Bible agrees?
