Days after President Donald Trump lashed out at Christianity Today for calling for his removal, the evangelical magazine’s editor-in-chief said the publication has been gaining subscribers.
“Although we’ve lost hundreds of subscribers, we’ve gained three times as many subscribers,” Christianity Today editor Mark Galli told Rev. Al Sharpton on MSNBC Sunday.
Last week, Galli published a controversial op-ed calling for Trump’s removal from office that asked readers to “remember who you are and whom you serve,” stating that Trump’s actions have been “immoral.”
“The president of the United States attempted to use his political power to coerce a foreign leader to harass and discredit one of the president’s political opponents,” Galli wrote in the op-ed. “That is not only a violation of the Constitution; more importantly, it is profoundly immoral.”
Trump — who had just become the third president in U.S. history to be impeached the day before — fired back on Twitter, misspelling the publication in the process.
“No President has done more for the Evangelical community, and it’s not even close,” Trump tweeted. “You’ll not get anything from those Dems on stage. I won’t be reading ET again!”
