Yes, it’s okay to be a Trump supporter and not lose your testimony as an evangelical, as some have warned. I have been talking about this for two years, assuring people that a vote for Trump wasn’t a vote for adultery or undisciplined tweets. Rulers are always imperfect. That doesn’t mean they can’t be effective and make good decisions.
In a great column from Chris Buskirk, from American Greatness, he reminds us that all rulers are flawed. I still don’t understand the “Never Trumpers”. What WAS their plan??? Even someone they might admire would ultimately let them down, and THEN where would they be?
When you cannot accept the fact that a flawed person can do good, you are saying that a person with fewer flaws could do better. Really? Open the Bible, pick a chapter….plenty of flawed people were at times better rulers than other, more genteel people. Putting trust in a person you view to have more character is as flawed an argument a hating everything Trump does.
