Pete Buttigieg attacks Christian Trump supporters’ judgement

Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg took another shot at Christians who support President Donald Trump, saying he sees no “compatibility.”

The former South Bend, Indiana mayor, who has claimed he is a Christian despite his same-sex marriage and support of abortion, attacked Bible-believing Christians who endorse the president during a CNN town hall.

“Do you think it is impossible to be a Christian and support President Trump?” CNN host Erin Burnett asked at the Nevada event on Tuesday.

“I’m not gonna tell other Christians how to be Christians, but I will say, I cannot find any compatibility between the way this president conducts himself and anything that I find in Scripture,” Buttigieg exclaimed.

“Now I guess that’s my interpretation but I think that’s a lot of people’s interpretation and that interpretation deserves a voice,” he added to audience applause.

The 2020 contender, who married his husband in 2018, has disparaged Trump supporters and their faith before, as Burnett alluded to in her question.

“If you belong to a faith tradition that tells you that so much depends on how we make ourselves useful to those who are marginalized and oppressed, that so much depends on how we work to comfort the afflicted, and that so much depends on seeking leaders who walk in the way of humility and decency, I can’t imagine that requires you to be anywhere near this president or what the Republican party has become,” he said at another CNN town hall earlier this month.

Buttigieg criticized Trump over his immigration and border policies last year, again smugly speaking for God.

“And for a party that associates itself with Christianity to say that it is okay, to suggest that God would smile on the division of families at the hands of federal agents,” he said in June, “that God would condone putting children in cages has lost all claim to ever use religious language again.”

The 38-year-old Democrat again reiterated his claim that “God does not belong to a political party,” while hypocritically using faith as a political tool.

While Buttigieg makes his ignorant claims about Christianity, it is Trump who has boldly defended the unborn with protective legislation and his border and immigration policies, contrary to what the left maintains, is ultimately designed to keep Americans safe, values it seems like the Bible espouses.

Twitter users slammed the former mayor for his remarks.
