Former Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) said in a recent interview that she has “never seen seen a more biblical president” than President Trump.
During her interview with a conservative Christian radio program called “Understanding The Times” during the weekend, Bachmann said “we could go on [with] what the president has done with standing for righteousness in so many areas.”
“One being Barack Obama had demanded and commanded that our military services had literally go out and recruit people who are transgender to come into the military,” she said. “Well, it costs about a quarter of a million dollars to do sex reassignment surgery.”
“Why would you recruit people who would come in and have sex reassignment surgery and be on the sidelines? It made no sense. So, Donald Trump got rid of that mandate and that requirement,” she continued.
Bachmann was referring to the previous ban the Obama administration lifted on transgender service in 2016. The Trump administration has since rolled out a policy barring most transgender people from serving in the military that took effect on Friday.
“He has stood up where most Republicans wouldn’t dare to stand up,” Bachmann went on to say of Trump. “Donald Trump has had the courage in the fortitude and I will say to your listeners in my lifetime I have never seen a more biblical president than I have seen in Donald Trump.”
