Convention speaker says Obama is ‘absolutely’ a Muslim

An actor who delivered a speech supporting Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention on Monday evening says he believes President Obama is “absolutely” a Muslim.

{mosads}Antonio Sabato Jr.,  a former Calvin Klein model who also appeared on TV shows such as “General Hospital,” told ABC Go that he does not believe Obama is a Christian, saying, “He’s with the bad guys.”

“I don’t believe the guy is a Christian, I don’t believe he follows the God that I love and the Jesus that I love. I think that he has had an agenda from the beginning,” Sabato said.

Sabato said the president’s last name is “not a Christian name, is it?” 

He claimed that Obama has “never talked about Jesus Christ once,” according to The Washington Post.

Earlier in the evening, during his convention speech, the Italian-born Sabato talked about the path he followed to American citizenship,

“I followed all the rules and finally became a naturalized citizen in 1996. Others who want to come to the U.S … should follow the same moves!” he said to cheers.
