The Reverend O’Neal Dozier, who once thanked God for the election of Donald Trump, is now cutting ties with the president and the Republican Party.
Dozier told Newsweek that the president has “doubled down into foolishness” while the Republican Party continues to back him. His failure to denounce white supremacists and his support of former Alabama Judge Roy Moore, who has been accused of child molestation, has led the pastor to publicly pull his support. He changed his party affiliation to independent on Tuesday.
Dozier had been a member of the Republican Party for 30 years, almost as long as he has been a pastor for the Worldwide Christian Center in Pompano Beach, Florida.
