Letter: Use verified news sources

Letter: Are Trump supporters sheep or goats?
I’m deeply confused on how any Christians could support an administration that is so completely against the teachings of Christ. How can Jesus return if we wouldn’t let him in the United States? Won’t United States Christians be surprised if Jesus makes stops in Mexico and Canada,...
