Evangelical leaders are thrilled by the president’s success in bringing home pastor Andrew Brunson.

An article by Politico details the different accounts of evangelical leaders and how they feel about President Trump.

In the 2016 race, 58 percent of protestant and Christian voters supported President Trump compared to the 39 percent who supported Hillary Clinton.

The article states the president’s nomination of pro-life judges, respect for religious liberty and the freeing of pastor Brunson have kept him popular among the demographic.

Evangelicals across the country largely feel the president has made good on his promises from the 2016 campaign.

Evangelical support will once again play a crucial role in determining whether the president wins reelection in 2020.
