Here are just five controversial things Jeffress has said in the past.

Jeffress has a history of attacking Mitt Romney.

In a tweet Sunday night, the former MA governor who is now running for a Senate seat from Utah criticized Jeffress for his remarks about Jews, Mormons and Islam.

"If I am going to hell, Juan - like you say I am for supporting Donald Trump - then that means you're going to be a hundred floors below me for supporting Hillary Clinton", he added. He has called gay people "miserable" and "filthy".

According to the pastor who is on Trump's informal evangelical advisory council, Mormonism, Hinduism, and Buddhism are all religious group and that Catholicism is a group that represents the "genius of Satan".

Trump has been criticized for announcing plans to relocate the embassy and for formally recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

In the sermon, Hagee quoted from the Book of Jeremiah that "they the hunters should hunt them [the Jews] ... from every mountain and from every hill and from out of the holes of the rocks". "'From every mountain and from every hill and from out of the holes of the rocks.' If that doesn't describe what Hitler did in the holocaust you can't see that". The message was clear but Hagee said his position was misrepresented and "the ugliest of lies". His daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner, both senior White House aides, were among the American delegation in the city.
