(TheRedAlertNews.com) – Francis Collins, President Joe Biden’s recently hired science advisor who served as the director of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland from 2009 through 2021, has been outed for making statements about former President Donald J. Trump and evangelical Christians that won’t win him many friends on the right side of the political spectrum.
As Newsmax reports in “Leaked Audio Shows Former NIH Head Collins Blaming Trump for COVID Deaths: Report“:
“Former National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins said job loss should be threatened to pressure citizens into getting COVID shots, and blamed former President Donald Trump for deaths early in the COVID pandemic, according to a leaked audio recording obtained by the Daily Wire.”
That’s the opening paragraph in the Newsmax piece. But, much deeper in the article, we learn:
“After Moore asked Collins about the political opinions of his fellow Christians, the then-director said the Trump administration violated norms of separation of church and state in reaching out to white, Protestant voters.
“‘[Separation of church and state] all got pretty muddy under the Trump administration. There was clearly a heavy effort to try to build political alliances with particularly white evangelicals. And it worked,’ Collins said, the Daily Wire reported.
“He then offered a personal attack on Trump, saying that ‘every aspect of that president’s character seems to be the opposite of what evangelical Christians would admire.'”
And, Collins didn’t stop there. He also says of Trump:
“‘Great harm was done to the people in this nation by a very, very self-involved and misguided president in the previous administration,’ Collins said, the Daily Wire reported. ‘Hundreds of thousands of people have died who should not have had to do so.'”
In truth, Collins unloads on Trump, evangelicals, and so many others that the article, which can be seen in full by clicking HERE, must be read to see the full scope of Collins’ attacks.
Is Collins believable? Please email [email protected] with your opinion about his attacks on Trump and evangelical Christians. Thank you.
