John Piper: Hillary And Trump Should Both Step Down!

Popular pastor John Piper made a bold statement recently, when he urged both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton to step down from the presidential race. "Of course, Trump should step down as Olasky and Grudem say. So should Hillary. That is what 'unqualified' means. It's never been a question," he wrote on twitter.

Piper was referring to the columns written by evangelical theologian Wayne Grudem and World Magazine editor Marvin Olasky recently. Grudem, who previously supported Donald Trump, changed his mind about the business magnate. "I did not take the time to investigate earlier allegations in detail, and I now wish I had done so. If I had read or heard some of these materials earlier, I would not have written as positively as I did about Donald Trump," he wrote.

But Olasky believes that a separate race could still be held. "A Clinton resignation would have been good for America's moral standards in 1998. A Trump step-aside would be good for America's moral standards in 2016," he said. "It's still not too late to turn the current race between two unfit major party candidates into a contest fit for a great country."
