Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has questioned his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton’s commitment to her Christian faith, saying that little is known about her spiritual life even though she has been in the public eye for decades.

“We don’t know anything about Hillary in terms of religion,” Trump told a group of evangelical leaders.

A video of the meeting was posted on social media.

“There’s like nothing out there. It’s going to be an extension of Obama but it’s going to be worse, because with Obama you had your guard up. With Hillary you don’t, and it’s going to be worse,” 70-year-old Trump said.

In response to Trump’s remarks, the Clinton campaign released a statement by evangelical leader Deborah Fikes, who has served as an Executive Advisor to the World Evangelical Association.

“There is a troubling trend underway in America today. Donald Trump – a major party’s presumptive presidential nominee – has used even more disturbing language to mock women, Latinos, and people with disabilities,” said Fikes.

“He has repeatedly called for a ban on Muslims entering our country. And he has promised to surveil Muslim neighbourhoods in cities and suburbs across the United States.

As an evangelical Christian Faith, it troubles me deeply to see abuse of the vulnerable and intolerance toward religious minorities on the rise,” he said. Read More
