Evangelicals are ecstatic because in less than two years President Trump has filled a second Supreme Court vacancy with a second conservative — just as he promised.” — Pastor Robert Jeffress
DALLAS — Dr. Robert Jeffress, the senior pastor of First Baptist Church of Dallas, issues the following statement regarding the nomination by President Trump of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
“Evangelicals are ecstatic because in less than two years President Trump has filled a second Supreme Court vacancy with a second conservative—just as he promised. The fact that the president chose another conservative justice is more important than the name of that justice. This is a huge win for President Trump.”
“Now, Evangelicals who give the president a 75 percent approval rating are turning their eyes to the Senate. Americans gave Republicans control of the presidency, the House and the Senate for precisely this moment. The president has kept up his end of the bargain—and now the Senate must have the guts to do the same. We will be praying—and watching.”
