David Green, the CEO of Hobby Lobby, said he would not endorse Donald Trump, in fact, he said Trump scared him to death. Green made the state just prior to Trump’s impressive showing on Super Tuesday back in March.
Green also made a broader statement which was published on Politico.com: “Our family business that we began with $600, has quite possibly been more successful than Mr. Trump’s, but that doesn’t make either of us qualified to be president.” Ultimately, Green endorsed Senator Marco Rubio for president.
But when Rubio withdrew his name from the race, Green sort of withdrew himself from making statements about 2016 elections. However, that has now all changed. Green is officially endorsing Trump. His decision to support Trump is more of a statement against Hillary. Green says he doesn’t trust Hillary Clinton to choose judges who will preserve America’s religious liberty.
Green wrote an op-ed for USA TODAY. Here is a portion of what he wrote:
“Make no mistake, the vacancy left by Justice Scalia and the subsequent appointment to fill his seat makes this presidential election one of the most significant in modern times. During a 2015 speech at the Women in the World Summit, Hillary Clinton declared that religious beliefs have to be changed.
What I fear she really means is that the beliefs of people of faith across our nation will be discounted, and those people will be forced to violate their conscience under her presidency — a philosophy that would be carried out by anyone she nominates for the Supreme Court.
Clinton has made no secret she believes government interests supersede the protection of religious liberty.
In contrast, Donald Trump has been steadfast in expressing his commitment to uphold the Constitution, and his list of possible Supreme Court nominees inspires confidence that there is hope in my future — and in my grandchildren’s future — for a country that will value those most fundamental rights.”
