During an interview with CBN News Political Analyst David Brody, the US president revealed if “it was God who put him in the presidency.”
At the White House, Trump gave an interview to Christian-political analyst David Brody, who, beyond the political context that surrounds them, focused on a more personal and spiritual talk with the president.
After several questions, Brody asked Trump a question that many people asked themseves from his first day as an American leader: Did God really put him in that place?
The interview recounts the president’s opinion and how he feels with the support of the country’s evangelical community.
According to Brody, all the political figures who were asked about the same question answered in the same way: affirmative.
“I want to ask you, on the evangelical front. I’ve asked Sarah Sanders, Mike Pompeo, they all give me the same answer I say, was President Trump put in office for such a time as this. Did God put President Trump in office for such a time as this? I never asked you that question. What do you think?,” Brody said.
“I almost don’t even want to think about it. Because you know what, all I’m gonna do is, I hope it’s true. All I’m going to do is I’m going to do my best,” Trump expressed.
After saying that he did not really know the statements of others about that, he shared he have heard that, saying that when he was running for president, one of his own opponents told him that he would win because God had put him in that place.
“Okay. Because I have, Ben Carson said the same thing. You know, Ben Carson came to me because he ran a very effective campaign. And he did a good job. He really did. You know, he came in one of the top people. And he said to me, you know, you’re gonna win. I said, Ben, I’m running against you. What are you telling me? He said you’re going to win because God put you here for this occasion. I said, What a lovely thing to say. That was the first one that I heard from Ben Carson. And it was during the campaign, I was running against him, and he was saying, I’m gonna win. He’s a very high-quality guy. He’s done a great job in the administration.”
During the interview, he also said that he feels honored to be able to count on the support of great Christian leaders of the nation such as Billy Graham and his son Franklin, whom he appreciates the fact that they gave their vote in his favor, as it is not something that evangelist Billy Graham used to say.
“I was so honored when Franklin Graham said that his father voted for me. And that was something that Billy Graham has never announced, who he was voting for. But Franklin Graham said his father voted for me. He went public with it,” The president said.
“As you know, to me that was a big moment because I have such respect for Franklin and for the family and Billy Graham is really great. Like when he said that his father, his last vote was for me and his father never announced who was voting for, would never talk about it,” he added.
The president explains that he wants to do everything for the benefit of those who were ignored by many leaders.
“Forgotten men and women, they would have forgotten. They were very successful. They were, they do a great job. They’re smart, they have everything, but they were forgotten by the politicians. They showed up in 16,” he said.
So far, President Trump expects to receive that same amount of support in the upcoming November elections this year, as he knows that most of his supporters have Christian beliefs.
