Following Bill Donohue’s interview with CNN’s Mike Smerconish on February 13, Donald Trump twice tweeted on his performance, as well as on his Newsmax article (above):
“A very big thank you to Bill Donohue, head of The Catholic League, for the wonderful interview on @CNN and article in Newsmax! Great insight.”
“Nice column by Bill Donahue, head of the Catholic League. He’s a blue collar New Yorker and gets it newsmax.com/Bill Donohue.”
Some have asked if Donohue is supporting Trump. No. He is not publicly supporting any candidate, though he has said he would vote for “anyone but her.”
Our goal is to persuade the candidates to stand up for religious liberty and denounce anti-Catholicism. We are beholden to no one.
