Russell Moore, prominent evangelical leader, called on Trump to step down

Russell Moore, the head of the public policy arm of the Southern Baptist Convention, implored Trump on Friday to leave office early.

“Mr. President, people are dead. The Capitol is ransacked. There are 12 dangerous days for our country left,” Moore tweeted. “Could you please step down and let our country heal?” Moore was critical of Trump in 2016, saying he “stirs up racial animosity” and calling on Christians to support a third-party candidate. Once Trump was elected, Moore quieted his criticism. This bold rebuke of Trump came from an influential member of the Baptist church after the large evangelical embrace of Trump during his presidency.
