Noble, whose NewSpring megachurch is located in Anderson, South Carolina, made his comments in a string of tweets ahead of his state’s primary electon on February 20.
“Going on the record […] Will NOT endorse/support @realDonaldTrump in the SC primary, either Rubio, Cruz or Bush!” the megachurch pastor tweeted on February 15, adding that he appreciates the real estate mogul “as a person – but behind the scenes his campaign is as nasty as any of any of them out there!”
Noble went on to argue that Trump “is NOT the best choice among the current candidates […],” adding that he’s “Asking evangelicals in SC to be #notabouttrump.”
“Seriously concerned that @realDonaldTrump may win SC!!!!’ C’mon y’all – we are better than that!!!!!” Noble added.
Although the well-known pastor has voiced his disapproval of Trump’s policies, he did commend the politician for refusing to participate in the Fox News-hosted debate on January 28.
Due to a disagreement with Fox News moderator Megyn Kelly, Trump opted to skip the debate, instead holding his own rally at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, on the same night.
“This is NOT an endorsement. […] However, is Trump ‘Trumping’ FOX or what?!?!” Noble tweeted in January.
