Launching a political coalition called Evangelicals for Trump at a Florida megachurch on Friday, President Trump declared his belief that God supports his agenda.
“I really do believe we have God on our side. I believe that. I believe that,” Trump said at King Jesus International Ministry in Kendall, Fla., adding, “or there would have been no way we could have won, right? People say how do you win, you don’t have the media, you have so many things against you, and we win. So, there has to be something.”
Speaking before a crowd of roughly 7,000 people that included noted pastors such as James and Shirley Dobson, Robert Jeffress, Cissie Graham Lynch, Alveda King, Jack Graham and Alberto Delgado, Trump portrayed himself as a dream president for evangelicals.
“Evangelicals, Christians of every denomination and believers of every faith have never had a greater champion, not even close, in the White House than you have right now. I think you know that.” Trump declared. “And I’m not saying that in any other way other than just look at the record.”
Trump touted his pro-life agenda and his attempts to overturn the Johnson Amendment forbidding nonprofit organizations — such as churches like the one hosting his rally — from endorsing political candidates.
“Our opponents want to shut out God from the public square,” Trump said, later shifting his focus to specific critics within the Democratic Party.
“These people hate Israel. They hate Jewish people. I won’t name them. I won’t bring up the name of Omar, Tlaib, AOC — I won’t bring that name up. Won’t bring it up,” Trump said.
