An Open Letter to President Trump from an Evangelical Re: Lafayette Protesters

An open letter from an evangelical to President Trump regarding the clearing of protesters from Lafayette Square for a photo op.

Dear President Trump,

It has come to my attention that, as an evangelical, I am your target market. That much of what you do and say is to garner my favor and lock in my vote for the next election. I didn’t realize just how powerful my voice is in your ears until I watched you clear Lafayette Park of protesters so you could hold a Bible in front of a damaged church to show me that “we’re winning.” You’ve gone as far to say that you think Christians see that as a “beautiful picture.”
