Donald Trump has always been seen speaking highly of his conservative Christian supporters and even claimed publicly that his administration will always fight for his Americans of faith. However, secretly, he despise and ridicule them in private.

These are the claims of some of Trump’s former aides. According to the full report, Trump’s views of conservative Christian Americans dates back to the time when he was not even the president of the U.S.

The report recalls Trump’s comments calling pastors “hustlers.” The incident dates back to 2015 when he called his longtime confidant and personal attorney, Michael Cohen, to his office. Trump spoke to him about a famous pastor, Creflo Dollar, and an article describing how he is trying to raise $60 million from his followers to buy a private jet.

Cohen recalled recently how Trump called it a “scam” and that the pastor was “full of shit,” although he bowed his head in front of Dollar in 2011 when he was first exploring a presidential bid.

“They’re all hustlers,” Trump said to Cohen in 2015.

In his speeches and interviews, Trump has always shown great support for Christian supporters and said that he takes them very seriously. But his administration indeed hold them in disdain.

“My administration will never stop fighting for Americans of faith,” he declared at a rally for evangelicals earlier in 2020.

However, Trump’s former aides say that his comments about Christianity and concerned followers are marked by contempt and cynicism when he talks about them in private with people close to him. They claim that they’ve heard Trump ridicule conservative religious leaders and dismiss certain faith groups.

Cohen recently released his memoir titled “Disloyal,” in which he describes rump’s meeting with the pastor in 2011 and him sneering “Can you believe that bullshit?” upon his return.

“He was completely familiar with the business dealings of the leadership in many prosperity-gospel churches,” Cohen said during an interview for the report, adding that Trump did follow their moneymaking ventures despite finding their rituals ridiculous.
