Christian author Eric Metaxas sat down with The Daily Caller News Foundation at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland and answered the question: Can Christians vote for Trump in good conscience?

“Sometimes you have to hold your nose and vote for the person who is going to do the least damage or who is maybe going to pull you back from the brink,” Metaxas told TheDCNF. “You can even hate trump, but I’m saying you better be sure that you understand what a Hillary Clinton presidency brings.”

Trump has divorced twice, said he doesn’t seek forgiveness from God, and has shown little competency i terms of the Bible when asked questions about the Christian faith.

“Donald Trump is not some great man of virtue, but this much I’ll say for him,” Metaxas told TheDCNF. “I think he loves America and I don’t think he wants to line his own pockets. At this point, that is the kind of virtue that we are talking about.”

“We’re not talking about sexual ethics,” Metaxas continued. “We are not talking about being a narcissist or being humble. We are talking about something very fundamental. When you are in a war mentality, you say ‘who is going to stand up where we need to stand up.’”
