In addition to his remarks on Jews, Jeffress has referred to both Mormonism and Islam as "a heresy from the pit of Hell".

"Evangelicals know they're not compromising their beliefs in order to support this great president", he told Fox News in March.

Jeffress, pastor of the First Baptist Church in Dallas and a member of President Trump's evangelical advisory board, has also called the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints a "cult" and said Islam is "based on a false book" and "if you sincerely follow the tenets of Islam, then you will end up in hell when you die". Critics, however, say the decision to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital could make a region already struggling with four ongoing conflicts all the more combustible. He brought up comments Jeffress made about other religions in the past and said it made him a poor choice for the occasion.

Hagee also has said that "to assert that I in any way condone the Holocaust or that monster Adolf Hitler is the biggest and ugliest of lies".
