Rev. Robert Jeffress and Dr. Emir Caner joined Todd Starnes on Fox Nation's "Starnes Country" to discuss President Trump's pledge to build a border wall, as well as left-wing Democrats' support for late-term and post-term abortion.

Starnes asked Jeffress, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Dallas, what his border-state neighbors are saying about Trump's insistence against Democratic opposition that the wall be built.

"People I'm hearing from are very supportive," Jeffress said, adding that he dismissed claims that building a wall is "un-Christian."

Jeffress spoke of the prophet Nehemiah, who embarked on a mission to build a wall around Jerusalem in the late 4th Century B.C. 

Jeffress said it is Trump's "God-ordained task to maintain order" in the United States and to "protect citizens against evil."

Caner, the president of Truett-McConnell University in Cleveland, Ga., added that physical border security is more than necessary.

He cited the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants arrested for drunk-driving, kidnapping and sexual assault.

Caner called the wall a "crucial element that only a globalist crowd would deny."

He said Trump is also abiding by the lesson of Romans:13, which proclaims that all people are "subject unto higher powers" and that "there is no power but of God [and] powers that be are ordained by God."

Caner praised Trump for his opposition to abortion, and criticized New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo for passing a law that strips protections for the unborn and allows for abortion up until the moment of birth.

"There has never been a more faith-friendly president in history," Jeffress added.
