Christian Leaders Denounce Trump’s Hypocrisy Ahead Of National Prayer Breakfast

More than 800 Christian leaders are calling on President Donald Trump to honor the tenets of his professed faith ahead of Thursday’s National Prayer Breakfast.
In a 2011 interview with NPR on the tradition of the prayer breakfast, progressive Christian author Jim Wallis said: “I remember Senator Mark Hatfield spoke years ago when I was in seminary and he called the war in Vietnam a national sin and shame in front of Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger. I saw their faces and they weren’t happy with that. So when it can raise up issues that we ought to be accountable to, whether we are religious or not, I think that’s when it’s probably at its best.”
