    Donald Trump appears to have fewer friends during his third pursuit of the Oval Office…

    During an interview for “The Water Cooler,” Trump lashed out against evangelical leaders for staying silent over his 2024 campaign. Trump is specifically upset he has yet to receive endorsements from more of these leaders, including pastor and prominent televangelist Robert Jeffress.

    “That’s a sign of disloyalty. There’s a great disloyalty in the world of politics and that’s a sign of disloyalty,” the former president told The Water Cooler host David Brody.

    Jeffress previously said he’d “happily” support Trump if he becomes the Republican Party’s presidential nominee.

    “Nobody has ever done more for right to life than Donald Trump,” Trump said, according to Mediaite.

    He also chastised evangelical voters for not fighting hard enough for Republicans during the midterm elections. Trump supported unproven fraudulence claims in some of those races.

    “I thought they could’ve fought much harder during the election, the ’22 election,” he said.

    Trump has previously blamed last year’s disappointing midterms results on pro-life Republicans.

    1. Hard to cede the “moral high ground” to someone who can’t stay faithful to his wife (wives). I am glad he supports the pro-life movement, but that is one issue.
      Also, perhaps he could demonstrate loyalty to those who aided and advised him while he was President instead of throwing them under the bus and trash talking them as soon as he hears something he doesn’t like – e.g., Pence, Tillerson, Bolton, now the Evangelicals, and the list goes on. It is a bit disingenuous for the Trumpster to claim disloyalty from Evangelical leaders when he is the chief practitioner.
