Tough Questions for Donald Trump
from America’s Families
Minnesota Family Council and its national family policy alliance
say questions remain for Donald Trump
Minneapolis – Minnesota Family Council and its national alliance, including Colorado Springs, CO-based CitizenLink and nearly 40 state-based family policy councils representing millions of Evangelicals nationwide, today released an open letter to presidential candidate Donald Trump calling on him to answer direct questions on his policy positions.
John Helmberger, CEO of Minnesota Family Council, said, “We’re calling on Mr. Trump to clear up his contradictory record on issues that millions of voters care deeply about. Mr. Trump has been invited several times to join our alliance’s Presidential Candidate Teleconference Series. He has yet to accept, and our constituents are left wondering.”
Minnesota Family Council has not endorsed any presidential candidate. All viable conservative candidates have been invited to participate in the Presidential Candidate Teleconferences organized by CitizenLink. So far, Sens. Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, and former Gov. Jeb Bush have participated on the calls, as well as former Sen. Rick Santorum and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, prior to suspending their campaigns. Dr. Ben Carson is scheduled for later this month.
Paul Weber, President & CEO of CitizenLink, explained, “With the recent passing of conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, the issues of marriage, life, religious liberty and the centrality of the family require even more focus.” Weber continued, “Mr. Trump’s public comments about nominating judges with the same temperament as his sister, Maryanne Trump Barry, who overturned the New Jersey Partial-Birth Abortion Ban are particularly concerning to Christians and should be to all Americans.”
As the state’s largest non-partisan, grassroots Christian organization, Minnesota Family Council mobilizes Christian citizens as a winsome biblical voice to transform Minnesota's culture so religious liberties flourish, life is cherished, and God’s design for marriage and family is honored.
