Jesse Jackson: Trump 'Would Not Qualify to Get Into Jesus' Kingdom'
Civil Rights activist Rev. Jesse Jackson said this week that the Electoral College "must come down," and warned that President Trump may have trouble making it into Heaven because of his views on immigrants.
Jackson said that Trump demands people "speak English, be qualified and have a job skill," the Daily Wire reported.
"Jesus would not qualify to come in Trump’s country, he would not qualify to get into Jesus’ kingdom," Jackson said, going on to quote the Book of Matthew's passage about helping the underprivileged.
He also called for reminders of the Confederacy to be removed from public view, adding that "the statues must come down."
"The electoral college must come down," Jackson added, saying it interferes with the ability for one man to have one vote in a democracy.
In the late 1990s, Jackson praised then-businessman Donald Trump on multiple occasions.
One, captured on C-SPAN in 1998, shows Jackson thanking Trump for his commitment to Jackson's causes.
"I do want to express thanks to you, Donald Trump. We need your building skills [and] your gusto," he said at the time.
He recalled how Trump attended business meetings when Jackson ran for president in the 1980s.
