Blame it on God: White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders claims God wanted Donald Trump to become president of the United States.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said she believes God wanted President Donald Trump to win the 2016 election, the Christian Broadcasting Network reported on Wednesday.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday that God “wanted Donald Trump to become president.”
Sanders spoke with David Brody and Jennifer Wishon of the Christian Broadcasting Network. Brody during the interview asked the press secretary for a “spiritual perspective” on Trump’s presidency.
According to the reports, Sanders told CBN’s David Brody:
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. I think he has done a tremendous job in supporting a lot of the things that people of faith really care about.
As one might imagine, Twitter was quick to react to the claim made by Sanders:
Sarah Sanders on CBN: “[God] wanted Donald Trump to become president, and thats why he’s there.”
So did God want @BarackObama to be president? Or did he take off those eight years?
Did he want the House Dems and @RepAOC to win in November? Or was he napping then?

So if Sarah Sanders believes God put Trump in power, does that also apply to Hitler?

Hey @PressSec…do ya think “God” also wanted #Trump to be a pathologically-lying, sexually-abusive, foul-mouthed, bullying racist serial philanderer who mocks disabled people, attacks the Pope, cages kids, steals an election & betrays his country? https://t.co/YgHDAyifQi

Previously White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders used the Bible to justify and defend the cruel and despicable policy of separating children from parents.
