On Wednesday, American Family Association president Tim Wildmon joined Sandy Rios to discuss his recent meeting with Donald Trump in New York.
Wildmon said that in Trump’s private meeting with Religious Right leaders on Monday, the GOP candidate said if he were president, all of his Supreme Court and federal judicial nominees would oppose abortion rights and be vetted by the Federalist Society, a conservative legal group.
Wildmon said that while Trump didn’t seem to “understand” the dangers to religious freedom posed by “the LGBT movement,” he was confident that he would be “coachable” on the issue.
“He is now surrounded by men that our audience would trust, okay, as godly people,” Wildmon said. “And he is being counseled and advised on a lot of these issues which he’s had a steep learning curve on because he has basically lived in a New York secular world his whole life and he’s having to come to know who we are, but he wants to be — I genuinely say this — he wants to be our friend. He wants to understand us.”
