Fox News Digital reached out to the Trump campaign for comment.

Last month, Trump said during a speech in Tennessee that it is “crazy” how Christians or individuals who consider themselves to be religious could vote for a Democrat.

“How any Christian can vote for a Democrat, Christian or person of faith, how you can vote for a Democrat is crazy. It’s crazy,” Trump told attendees at the National Religious Broadcasters International Christian Media Convention in Nashville, Tennessee.

Trump’s comment to the crowd came shortly after he claimed Biden is an “incompetent president who doesn’t know what the hell he’s doing” and “will not lead us to the promised land.”

During his speech, Trump lamented the indictments that had been waged against him in recent history and vowed to defend Christians from attacks by those on the “radical left” who are “coming after” those who are religious.
