I'm simply pointing out that the phrase "the Christians supporters of him [Trump]" already inherently excludes the Christians who actually have and hold to beliefs that are antithetical to Trump. So there's no need to further specify by type of Christian.

I'm a Christian, too, but I didn't feel insulted by Boycott's post, because he wasn't talking about me. He was specifically talking about Christians who support Trump.
