White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said she believes God wanted Donald Trump to become president and praised the “tremendous job” he has done supporting the Christian community.
“I think God calls all of us to fill different roles at different times and I think that He wanted Donald Trump to become president, and that’s why he’s there,” Sanders told David Brody and Jennifer Wishon of the Christian Broadcasting Network.
“I think he has done a tremendous job in supporting a lot of the things that people of faith really care about,” Sanders added, calling President Trump “the most conservative president that we’ve ever had.”
“You look at the judicial nominations alone, I think that will be one of the greatest legacies that the president has after his eight years in office is how he has completely remade the judiciary and started to stop this activist court that we’ve started to see over the last eight years. There’s a reason evangelicals are sticking with the president, and that’s because he’s delivered on all the things he said he would do.”
When asked about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi calling Trump’s proposed wall along the U.S. southern border “immoral,” Sanders told CBN it’s “very hard at this point to even take a lecture from Democrats on what is moral and what isn’t.”
“People who are willing to allow legislation to pass supporting late-term abortion,” she explained. “The idea that they would take out ‘so help me God’ in the platform that House Democrats have raised this week.”
She continued: “But the idea that protecting the people of your country, which is the fundamental duty of being president of the United States would in some way be immoral is a ridiculous charge and something that I think probably, I would think Speaker Pelosi may even regret making that comment because she’s seen how ridiculous that sounds and how the evidence is so contrary to that comment.”
