WATCH: Trump Says ‘Thinking About God’ Helped Him Get Through Mueller Probe and ‘Witch Hunts’

President Donald Trump on Thursday credited contemplating God with helping him get through special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into allegations of Russian collusion, and other probes he had denounced as “witch hunts.”

At a White House Rose Garden event marking the National Day of Prayer, the president remarked “people say, ‘How do you get through that whole stuff? How do you get through those witch hunts and everything else?'”

“And you know what we do, Mike?” he said, addressing Vice President Mike Pence. “We just do it, right? And we think about God.”

At the event, Trump also said that since taking office, more people were using the word “God.”

“You know, a lot of people – they don’t say it. But you know what? They’re starting to say it more. Just like we’re starting to say, ‘Merry Christmas’ when that day comes around.”
