After a 10-year-old leaked audio tape of Donald Trump speaking in a vulgar manner about women and claiming to have tried to seduce a married woman surfaced on Friday afternoon, one of the people you would least expect to stand behind the GOP nominee might be Christian Coalition founder Ralph Reed.

Reed, now with the Faith and Freedom Coalition, managed to shock the media with his decision to stand behind the Republican nominee, telling CNN’s Ashley Killough that he thought the tape was distracting from the real issues that Christian voters care about.

“I’ve listened to the tape, my view is that people of faith are voting for president on issues like who will defend and protect unborn life, defund Planned Parenthood, grow the economy and create jobs, and oppose the Iran nuclear deal,” Reed said in a statement.

 “I think a 10-year-old tape of a private conversation with (a) TV talk show host ranks pretty low on their hierarchy of their concerns.”

According to Fox News, Trump issued a video late Friday saying that the comments “don’t reflect who I am. I said it, I was wrong, and I apologize.”

“I’ve said some foolish things, but there’s a big difference between the words and actions of other people,” Trump continued. “Bill Clinton has actually abused women … We will discuss this more in the coming days.”

However, that wasn’t enough for many Republicans, who asked him to step aside. Most notable among these was Sen. Mike Lee, a man on Trump’s shortlist of people he would consider appointing to the Supreme Court.

Lee said that Trump’s attitude toward women had become a “distraction” and that it was “time for him to step aside so we can focus on the winning ideas that will carry Republicans through to a victory in November.”

Surprisingly, though, he still has the support of Ralph Reed, one of the top evangelicals in America. That says a great deal — and it could be a sign that Trump can come back from this.
