President Trump has responded to an influential evangelical magazine's call for his removal from office with a tweet claiming "No President has done more for the Evangelical community."

Why it matters: Christianity Today is an influential mainstream founded by the late Rev. Billy Graham. Trump has had strong support from evangelical Christians, and Graham's son Franklin previously has stood by the the president, saying Trump "defends the faith."

"A far left magazine, or very “progressive,” as some would call it, which has been doing poorly and hasn’t been involved with the Billy Graham family for many years, Christianity Today, knows nothing about reading a perfect transcript of a routine phone call and would rather....."
"....have a Radical Left nonbeliever, who wants to take your religion & your guns, than Donald Trump as your President. No President has done more for the Evangelical community, and it’s not even close. You’ll not get anything from those Dems on stage. I won’t be reading ET again!"
