Dobson said in the interview that evangelicals need to cut Trump some slack because he didn’t grow up with religion as they did. He also said of Trump, “He’s a nicer guy than you realize.”

According to exit polls, Trump fared well with evangelical voters during the primary season, despite questions about his faith.

Dobson encouraged everyone to pray for Trump.
