Pastor Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, has sparked both praise and controversy over his support for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, and now he’s predicting that Trump supporters will sit out of the election if the businessman is prevented from becoming the nominee.
“I’m going to predict that, if the establishment somehow wrestles this nomination away from Trump — even though the rules allow for it — I think you’re going to see a massive boycott of Trump supporters in the general election,” Jeffress said during an appearance on Fox Business Network earlier this week. “I’m not saying it should be that way, but I predict that’s what’s going to happen.”
He went on to argue that many of the people who Trump has energized are outside of the “Republican system.”
While Jeffress believes that the brash businessman has motivated these people to no longer sit on the sidelines, he believes that it’s quite possible that they will bow out of the political process if another GOP candidate nabs the nomination . . .
As TheBlaze previously reported, Jeffress — who isn’t endorsing a candidate in the 2016 election cycle, but who told the Christian Post that he doesn’t believe that a Christian “has to sell his soul to the devil to vote for Donald Trump” — has offered frequent support to Trump in recent months.
