CNN's Alisyn Camerota had her Bible quotes ready when she went into her interview with God and Donald Trump author Stephen Strang on Wednesday morning, pressing him on how some evangelicals can overlook Trump's personality in favor of his policies. "In order to receive forgiveness, don't you need to confess to your sins?" she asked. "Isn't that a tenet of the Bible? Don't you have to own up to these things? You know, Donald Trump famously said he's never asked God for forgiveness."

Strang dismissed such questions as being between Trump and God. "The issue for me," Strang said, "and for millions of evangelicals, is his policies. He supports the kinds of policies we think are important."
