The Christian Post reports:
A prominent pastor who was an early supporter of former President Donald Trump during his 2016 campaign has announced a run for the U.S. House and vows to “protect our God-given and America first agenda” if he’s elected in 2022. Pastor Mark Burns, who became well-known for his outspoken support for the 45th president, announced that he was running for the Republican nomination for South Carolina’s 4th Congressional District.
In 2017, The Christian Post reported that Burns claimed he saved Trump from a poisonous spider as a group of evangelical leaders presented the then-president with the “Friends of Zion” award for recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Burns reported that as “a massive, huge white spider” was “darting toward the back of his neck,” he felt an instinct to “kill the spider, protect Donald Trump.”
Read the full article. On his campaign website, Burns rages against LGBTQ rights and abortion. As you may recall, in 2016 Burns literally jumped out of his chair and fled a CNN interview after he was busted for lying about his military service and for lying about having a college degree. It must be what Jesus would want. Burns later claimed he was “attacked” by CNN because he’s a black man who supports Trump. Watch the clip.
