WYSK: Trump Courts Evangelical Votes 

Trump Recognizes the Value of Evangelicals in America | Sen. Rev. Rubén Díaz, Sr.

You should know that in his acceptance speech on Thursday, July 21, 2016, as the Republican Party Nominee for President of the United States of America, Donald Trump said the following:  “I would like to thank the evangelical community because, I will tell you what, the support they have given me — and I’m not sure I totally deserve it — has been so amazing. And has been such a big reason I’m here tonight. They have much to contribute to our policies.”

It is important for you to know that whether you like Donald Trump or not, he is the only candidate who has publicly recognized the importance of Evangelicals in our nation.

Everyone else mocks us calling us fanatics, religious zealots, radicals, repressive and oppressive.

In front of millions of viewers, Donald Trump told the world that he values Evangelicals.

I, for one, am an Evangelical. I am a Democrat, and to be more specific, I am a Conservative Democrat, and everyone knows it.  I have been the Pastor of the Christian Community Neighborhood Church for many years here in the Bronx, and I also serve as the President of the New York Hispanic Clergy Organization, which is comprised of more than 150 Evangelical ministers in the Metropolitan area.

My dear reader, I am excited and very glad that the work of Evangelicals has been recognized from such a prominent official who is the running for the Presidency of the United States of America.

I hope and pray that other leaders, including Hillary Clinton, Governors, Mayors and other elected officials will start to pay attention to the Evangelical movement and our socially conservative values.

I pray that they will publicly recognize that we are part of America, unlike some who have publicly stated that we are not welcome in places like New York.

I am Senator Reverend Rubén Díaz, and this is what you should know.
