Head Of Church Of England Doesn't Understand Christian Trump Voters, And We Know How He Feels

By Dennis Matthew Livesey

The Most Reverend Justin Welby, archbishop of Canterbury and leader of the Church of England, spoke on Sunday about American Christians and their support of President Donald Trump. 

"I really, genuinely do not understand where that is coming from,” Welby told ITV’s Robert Peston.

Welby, like many Trump critics, believes the President has displayed some rather un-Christian behavior in the past and, like others, is curious about the disconnect between the values of his base and the President they voted for. 

Evangelical Christians were an undeniable key to then-candidate Trump's successful bid for the Presidency in 2016.
