Is Trump Losing Evangelical Support Over His Betrayal of the Kurds?

Is Donald Trump finally losing his ironclad grip on the white evangelical voter? Conservative Christians have remained faithful to Trump through hush money payments to porn stars, Charlottesville, hundreds of toxic tweets and countless of scandals, but his betrayal of Kurds is giving them pause.

White evangelicals are unconcerned that Trump isn’t a true Republican, they turn a blind eye to his moral failings, and they don’t lose any sleep over his unconstitutional polices, but his shocking treatment of the Kurds, is finally making them have second thoughts about their religious devotion to their orange Messiah.

Reportedly, Trump has sought counsel from prominent evangelical leaders on how to protect his unholy alliance with conservative Christians amid criticism over his withdrawal of American troops from Syria.

These evangelical leaders, whose allegiance isn’t to the Bible or the American Constitution, but to their right wing platform which includes blind support for the state of Israel have advised him that his Syrian policy poses an existential threat to Israel.

Trump has no loyalty to anyone or anything except himself, he’s remained loyal to white evangelicals only because he can’t win reelection without their unwavering support. But evangelicals are wondering: if Trump can abandon, betray and leave the Kurds to the tender mercies of the brutal Turkish army, what’s to say their precious Israel won’t be the next ally to be thrown under the bus?


Evangelicals don’t lose any sleep because Trump is turning our democracy into a fascist state, but they lay awake at night worried that the mercurial and impulsive Trump may suddenly reverse course and abandon Israel. And if America turns her back on Israel, and if the Jewish state is destroyed that means that their interpretation of the Bible is wrong, and everything they believe in is wrong.

Evangelicals need to wake the hell up, when the President of the United States and the Leader of the Free World is a corrupt, racist and vulgar sociopath it may lead to genocide of the Kurds, the destruction of Israel and the disintegration of our democracy.

Robert Paul Reyes: What I’m Thankful for This Thanksgiving Day

Waking up this morning, not exactly with a spring in my step but without keeling over.

The furnace blasting heat inside my home while outside the leaves are tossed about by the frigid wind.

The pitter-patter of little feet as my cats conspire what deviltry to visit upon me.

My dog barking outside as she protects my home and annoys my neighbors.

My little pink house far from a mansion, but a comfortable home.

Family that I will soon join in celebration of Thanksgiving.

TheSop.Org an online soapbox that allows me to spread my opinions with my community and with the world.

This job that barely pays my bills, but provides me with an opportunity to write my essays such as this one.

Few possessions, but no bills.

Jolly Christmas songs playing on the radio, reminding me that this holiday tomfoolery has weeks to go.

The sweet promise that one morning I won`t wake up.
