Mary Mary’s Tina Campbell Voted for Trump Because of His “Christian Views”

Back in January, Mary Mary songstress Tina Campbell caught major backlash after sharing that she voted for Donald Trump the previous November. While she didn’t go into much detail, a new interview with The Root has the powerhouse vocalist explaining her decision.

When faced with two candidates she wasn’t very fond of, the reality star says Trump’s “views on Christianity” was the determining factor.

“I was faced with two presidential candidates that I really did not approve of. And so I had to find something, a commonality with one of them, that would make me feel like if I have to vote, I should utilize my right to vote.”

Tina went on to say, “Since I don’t prefer either of them, what can I find that would make me vote? And some of Donald Trump’s views on Christianity, honestly, is what caused me to vote for him.”

While the “God in Me” singer doesn’t regret her vote, she admits President Donald Trump’s leadership style leaves much to be desired.

“Many of the decisions that he has made afterwards, I have not been in agreement with at all, which I wasn’t in agreement with my last president that I voted for. But however, as a Christian, my perspective is to pray for the president, to not use my social platforms or other platforms to try to destroy this man, because at the end of the day, he still represents the country that I live in.”

Tina and sister Erica Campbell are also wrapping up their Mary Mary WEtv reality series  this season, with the fiery redhead sharing that her thoughts on the Donald won’t be making the cut.

“You ain’t never going to see that in there. Donald Trump is not that much a part of my life. I had a perspective. I had a feeling. And I put it out there. I know there’s some people who don’t agree. I do not agree with a lot of the decisions that this man makes. And I made that very clear in my statement.”

What do you think of Tina’s decision?
