In an exclusive interview with The Brody File, GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump says evangelicals can trust him to be a president that will support traditional marriage. “I think they can trust me. They can trust me on traditional marriage,” Trump tells The Brody File during our interview in Charleston South Carolina. “I was very much in favor of having the court rule that it goes to states and let the states decide. And that was a shocking decision for you and for me and for a lot of other people. But I was very much in favor of letting the states decide.”
Trump’s method of operation has been to simply proclaim that he will get things done and to simply trust him to do it. Cruz, on the hand points out his blood, sweat and tears effort in fighting for Judeo-Christian principles within the legal system. Voters, especially evangelicals are going to need to reach a comfort zone here. Do they go with the candidate that has a track record on the issues or a candidate that has built a successful business empire and has a brand of getting things done. Can that translate into what he promises on social issues? So far, it seems like a split decision with evangelicals propelling Cruz to victory in New Hampshire but Trump also doing surprisingly well with evangelicals in the Hawkeye state not to mention leading by double digits among evangelicals in South Carolina.
