Obama continued, “The fact that Trump says racist things about Mexicans or…puts undocumented workers in cages—they think that’s less important than [that] he supports their views on gay marriage or abortion.”

Trump supported abortion rights before the 2016 campaign, but pivoted towards the pro-life movement and has courted the backing of pro-life organizations.

Yet if Obama ’ s views were “evolving” publicly, they were fully evolved behind closed doors.

Senator Josh Hawley (R., Mo.), criticized Obama’s comments as “condescending.”

“Ah yes, those Hispanic evangelicals. So backwards. Clinging to their guns and religion, you might say,” Hawley wrote on Twitter. “Barack Obama still the most condescending corporate liberal in America.”
