Home/Rod Dreher/Trump’s Silence

Trump’s Silence

Lots of Trump tweets this week, including the one above, but not a single one about the Supreme Court’s abortion ruling, or today’s Court decision not to hear the Washington state pharmacy case, which has profound consequences for religious liberty. He cannot be bothered to type 140 characters about either issue.

Evangelicals who have boarded the Trump train have to be wondering right about the wisdom of that decision. Trump cares more about how he looks on CNN than he does about abortion and religious liberty. Again, I can understand why religious conservatives would vote for Trump over Clinton because they would rather take a chance on the devil they don’t know than the devil they do. But they had better not have any illusions about what they’re doing.
