Stemberger: Donald Trump is a 'disaster'



Florida’s John Stemberger is joining the Evangelical effort to defeat Donald Trump, saying voters are being fooled.

“The problem with Donald Trump is just like Barack Obama – he sounded good,” Stemberger, president of the Florida Family Policy Council, said Tuesday on Newsmax TV.

“We fell in love with the romantic idea of the first black American president. So the idea of Barack Obama was much better than what we actually got. I’d submit that the same thing is with Trump. The biggest predictor of who a candidate’s going to be is his past behavior, his record, his statements. And his statements are deplorable, in terms of the kind of issues that Christians are concerned about. He favors the ‘good stuff’ of Planned Parenthood. He’s in favor of gay marriage. He uses the f-word openly and other four-letter obscenities that the FCC would have to bleep out. This is a man who’s very undisciplined and it’s going to be a disaster.”
