‘I won’t be reading ET again’, says President Trump in Twitter error

February 2020 | by Mike Judge

US President Donald Trump mistakenly tweeted about ET in response to a different evangelical publication welcoming his impeachment.

Christianity Today (CT) had published an opinion piece by editor-in-chief Mark Galli calling for President Trump to be removed from office.

Trump responded by sending out a tweet saying, ‘No President has done more for the evangelical community’. He added, ‘I won’t be reading ET again’.

He meant to write ‘CT’ but his error led to several angry Trump supporters contacting ET online.

Bemused ET staff responded to the furious comments, pointing out that ET had never expressed any opinion about the impeachment of the US President.

In December the Democratic-led US House of Representatives voted to impeach the President for seeking the help of Ukraine to investigate his political opponent.

An article welcoming the impeachment was published by Christianity Today (CT) the evangelical Christian magazine founded by Billy Graham.

Graham’s son, Reverend Franklin Graham, told Fox News in December, ‘My father knew Donald Trump, believed in Donald Trump, and in this last election, he voted for Donald Trump.’

Editor-in-chief Mark Galli faced a backlash from Trump-supporting evangelicals and has since retired from his role. His retirement, however, was already announced last October.

Wayne Grudem has written a point-by-point response to Mark Galli’s article on Townhall.com, respectfully differing with the opinion that Trump should be removed from office.
