After initially declining the invitation, Trump spoke Friday in front of several hundred social conservative leaders at the Family Research Council’s Values Voter Summit in Washington. He joined a speaking program that includes Republican rivals with long records of dedication to religious causes — among them, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, a Baptist pastor, and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who wants his colleagues to risk a government shutdown to block funding to Planned Parenthood.
Trump brought his Bible along once again, and briefly addressed his faith between attacks on his rivals and Democrats.
“I believe in God. I believe in the Bible. I’m a Christian,” he said. He ended by bemoaning the increased use of the term “Happy Holidays” in place of “Merry Christmas” as a sign that Christianity is under attack. As president, he said, he’d reverse the trend.
God, the jumping on the "War on Christmas" bandwagon. That is possibly the lamest pandering that any politician can do.
And as Mediaite points out Trump is more than a little vulnerable to attacks on that topic himself:
Ah hypocrisy, where would the Trump campaign, and in fact the entire GOP "deep bench" of nominees be without it?
This Values Voter Summit is also where Trump got booed for calling Marco Rubio a "clown."
Yeah I think Trump's starting to feel the heat.
Yeah in politics BS will only take you so far (Of course in the Republican party that distance is the top of the polls) but eventually people are going to start getting sick of the dog and Pony show and demand to see what you've got.
And all that Donald Trump has got, is more dogs and more ponies.
