In the wake of what many consider a possible “death knell” to Donald Trump’s campaign, Faith and Freedom Coalition Chairman Ralph Reed, who sits on Trump’s religious advisory board, revealed on NPR Saturday morning that he’ll continue to back the Republican candidate.
“I’ve listened to the tape, my view is that people of faith are voting for president on issues like who will defend and protect unborn life, defund Planned Parenthood, grow the economy and create jobs, and oppose the Iran nuclear deal,” Reed said in a statement.
“I think a 10-year-old tape of a private conversation with (a) TV talk show host ranks pretty low on their hierarchy of their concerns,” he continued.

While a growing list of top Republicans pull their endorsements and use their platform to bash Trump for political expediency, it’s refreshing to see that a man of faith and leadership like Reed is willing to take a more Christian approach.
Trump released a rare “apology video” late Friday night, in which he reminded viewers that Bill Clinton has a very shady past of actual sexual assault allegations, which is obviously more serious than mere words said among a group of men.
