Megachurch Pastor Who Advised Trump Resigns After Abuse Allegations

A megachurch pastor has resigned after sexual abuse allegations surfaced. Robert Morris was a faith advisor to Donald Trump.

“A pastor at a Texas megachurch resigned Tuesday after a woman accused him of sexually abusing her several times between 1982 and 1987, when she was a minor.

The resignation of Robert Morris, founder and senior pastor at Gateway Church, was accepted by the church’s board of elders.
