England’s top religious authority, the archbishop of Canterbury, said Sunday that he doesn’t understand why so many Christians in the U.S. support President Donald Trump.
The Most Rev. Justin Welby told ITV’s “Peston on Sunday” program that he “really genuinely” can’t comprehend why fundamentalists have provided such a strong base for Trump.
“There’s two things going through my mind: Do I say what I think, or do I say what I should say? And I’m going to say what I think,” he said on the show, referring to the support Trump has garnered, especially from so-called Evangelical Christians. “No, I don’t understand it. I really genuinely do not understand where that is coming from.”
