Salt Lake City, UT—Elder Uchtdorf surprised church members this week when he publicly endorsed Donald Trump for President.

Elder Uchtdorf says that he met President Trump at a Tanning Salon. The two bonded over their dislike for Senator Mitt Romney, and love for European women.

“Deter is a great guy. He has been a loyal supporter and friend from the beginning,” Trump told reporters.

While the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints does not, as a whole, endorse political candidates, it encourages its members to be politically active citizens.
