Donald Trump, the President of the United States, recently posted a tweet in which he criticized a Christian magazine for supporting his removal from office by the House of Representatives. The newspaper featured an editorial that argued for Trump’s withdrawal from the White House.
The editor of the publication argued that Trump should be removed from office because of his “blackened moral record.” You can check out the president’s tweet at the post below:
… Have a non-believer of the radical left, who wants to take your religion and your weapons, as Donald Trump as president. No president has done more for the evangelical community, and it’s not even close. You will get nothing from these Dems on stage. I will not read ET anymore!

In his tweet, Trump suggested that the magazine hadn’t worked so well in recent years and hadn’t been involved with the reverend who founded it, Billy Graham, for a long time. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Graham’s son and many others came to his aid.
Reverend Franklin Graham, who heads his father’s Evangelical Association, consulted his Twitter account on Friday and said his father would be “disappointed” with what the media had become in recent years.
In addition, Graham added that his father, who died in 2018, had voted for the president. He explained that Christianity Today is a representation of the “left-wing elite” among evangelical Christians in the United States.
In a conversation with the Associated Press, Graham said the outlet does not represent those who worship the Bible in the community. Currently, the magazine sells approximately 130,000 magazines per year. According to some sources, Trump is very popular among his base, evangelical Christians.
On Friday, in an interview with Galli on CNN, he said the description made by the president of the magazine as a leftist extremist organization was “far from accurate”. However, Galli, who is preparing to quit his job for retirement next January next year, said he knew there would be an impact from Trump’s comments.
As previously reported, Congress voted on the two impeachment articles earlier this week, however, it must still be returned to the Senate where the president will be tried. So far, the response on this topic on social media has been mixed, with some people saying it was clearly motivated by partisanship, and others saying it was a demonstration that democracy works.
