Pastor Robert Jeffress, one of Trump's evangelical advisers who leads First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, released this statement in response to Trump's controversial remarks:

"Apart from the vocabulary attributed to him, President Trump is right on target in his policy.

"As individual Christians, we have a biblical responsibility to place the needs of others above our own, but as Commander-in-Chief, President Trump has the constitutional responsibility to place the interests of our nation above the needs of other countries.

"I'm grateful we have a President like Donald Trump who clearly understands that distinction and has the courage to protect the well-being of our nation."
