A new CNN/ORC poll reveals that President Donald Trump has the highest disapproval rating for a newly elected president. Among his non-fans is gospel singer Donnie McClurkin.
The Grammy-winning “We Fall Down” singer is listing all the reasons the billionaire Republican wasn’t his choice, while still encouraging Christians to offer prayers for the widely-disliked Commander-In-Chief.
“I did not vote for him at all because of his vitriolic speech and his unintelligent approach at campaigning, his lack of policy, his misogynistic ideas, the whole nine yards [and] racism,” said McClurkin, listing his oppositions to the president in an interview with nationally syndicated radio show Get Up! Mornings with Erica Campbell.
But even though the 57-year-old, along with a majority 53% of Americans reportedly disapprove of the president, McClurkin says believers aren’t off the hook when it comes to praying for the newly minted leader.
“Now is our time to pray for him. This is the job of the church. Now let the world protest, but the job of the church now is to go into prayer and pray that, number one, he succeeds, because if he fails, we have to deal with the consequences as a nation,” the Pentecostal preacher told host Erica Campbell.
