Should Christians be supporting Donald Trump? An influential Gospel industry veteran says absolutely not.
Uh-oh. “Wanna Be Happy?” songwriter Kirk Franklin is not happy about some pastors’ decision to meet with Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump last week.
In a series of Dec. 8 tweets, the Fo Yo Soul Recordings CEO scolds the leaders for what he sees as an opportunistic act.
“To every pastor that stood next to Donald Trump last week, I hope you now see why we’re losing respect as Christians in the world,” wrote the 45-year-old.
On Monday, flanked by black Christian preachers presumably in support of his campaign, the billionaire real estate mogul boasted that more than 100 pastors attended a two-and-a-half hour private meeting—something Franklin roundly condemned online.
