Krauthammer: Trump Can Be a 'Centurion'-Style Defender for Christian Conservatives
Charles Krauthammer reacted to Donald Trump's meeting with evangelicals today and explained the presumptive GOP nominee's "powerful" appeal to Christian conservatives.
Trump sat down with hundreds of evangelical and social conservative leaders, in what was billed as an effort to address "long-standing concerns" about his candidacy.
Attendees said he pledged to protect religious freedom and nominate pro-life justices to the Supreme Court if elected.
Krauthammer said that evangelicals understand that Trump isn't one of them.
"'I say 'Two Corinthians,' I'm not exactly well-versed in the Bible,'" he said, speaking for Trump. "'But I will protect you. I'm going to be the centurion standing outside the cathedral gates protecting you against the barbarians abroad and the secularists at home.' And he said that explicitly, and that's a pretty powerful argument."
