Dr. Richard Land, president of Southern Evangelical Seminary in Charlotte, North Carolina, is not happy with the current state of the 2016 presidential elections. But if he were to choose between the two leading candidates—Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and his opponent Hillary Clinton from the Democratic Party—he said he would go with the former.
Land told OneNewsNow on Friday that it will be a close competition between the two candidates. However, there is a stark difference between the two.
"Frankly, I think we're dealing with a choice between a lesser evil and a greater evil," he said. "Mrs. Clinton is the greater evil."
Frank finds it unbelievable how some people can still choose to support Clinton even after she was indicted because of her use of the private email server while she was still Secretary of State.
"Seventy-one percent of registered Democrats think that Hillary ought to be the nominee even if she's indicted," he said. "So what if she is a crook, so what if she lied under oath, so what if she's broken the law, who cares? That says more about the Democrats and Mrs. Clinton than it does about us as a nation."
Land then stressed the importance of voting for Trump. Even though Land does not consider himself a huge fan of the business magnate, he said evangelical voters need to support him. If not, Clinton just might win the White House.
"[I]f we don't help the lesser evil prevail over the greater evil, we become responsible morally for helping the greater evil to prevail," he said.
Meanwhile, Trump has warned U.S. President Barack Obama not to campaign for Clinton, according to CBS News.
"We have a president that doesn't know what the hell he's doing, folks," Trump told a crowd in Richmond, Virginia. "I hear he's going to take a lot of time, during our time, when he's supposed to be looking at trade and the military and all of these things, and he's going to campaign for Crooked Hillary."
"You know what? That's OK. That's OK," Trump continued. "Because if he does that, we're allowed to say things about him that normally we wouldn't bring up. Remember when Bill started campaigning?"
Trump was referring to Clinton's husband, former President Bill Clinton, who has been accused by several women of sexual misconduct.
