"I once had a discussion with some people on the religious right, and I said how do you support Donald Trump? His lifestyle, his values, they're nothing like yours. They're nothing like a religious Christian. Why do you people support him so strongly," Schneider told Hill.TV's Joe Concha on Tuesday. 

"And they give me an interesting answer. They said he delivers," he continued. "And what he delivered they mentioned specifically was the thing that they have been waiting for, for 50 years. He gave us the Supreme Court, and for that anything can be tolerated." 

Trump has largely delivered on his campaign promise to appoint conservative judges to courts across the country.
