President Donald Trump on Friday lashed out against Christianity Today a day after the evangelical magazine published an editorial calling for his removal from office over his “profoundly immoral” conduct.
In a pair of tweets Friday morning criticizing the editorial, Trump called the famously-conservative magazine “far left,” said it “knows nothing about reading a perfect transcript,” and referred to it as ET.
The magazine was founded in 1956 by the late, right-wing evangelist Billy Graham and calls itself “a trusted beacon spotlighting the way in which Christians can live gospel lives for the strengthening of church and society.” It boasts a readership of five million.
Thursday’s editorial, written by outgoing editor-in-chief Mark Galli, was bluntly titled “Trump Should Be Removed from Office” and called for the president’s ouster to happen either through a vote to impeach in the Senate or by the results of the ballot box in the 2020 election.
“The president of the United States attempted to use his political power to coerce a foreign leader to harass and discredit one of the president’s political opponents,” Galli wrote of the Ukraine affair. “That is not only a violation of the Constitution; more importantly, it is profoundly immoral.”
