Just after giving a blessing at the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem, Senior Pastor of the First Baptist Church in Dallas Dr. Robert Jeffress responded to Mitt Romney calling him a "religious bigot" on "The Todd Starnes Show."

Dr. Jeffress told Starnes, "I think it's just sad that he is that bitter, I guess, over the 2012 election. Maybe he's bitter as he thinks to himself he could have been president and done what President Trump is doing, or the fact is he couldn't have, which is why he's not President."
