Rick Perry: Trump Is ‘Chosen One’ Sent By God To Rule Over United States

Rick Perry: Trump Is ‘Chosen One’ Sent By God To Rule Over United States November 25, 2019

Theocracy flavored Kool-Aid: Energy Secretary Rick Perry claims President Donald Trump is the “chosen one” sent by God to rule over the United States.

Newsweek reports:

Fox News’ Fox & Friends show on Sunday showed a preview of an interview in which soon-to-depart Secretary of Energy Rick Perry said Donald Trump was God’s “chosen one” to be president of the United States.

Appearing on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends,” Perry explains that the president was “the chosen one” sent by God to rule over the United States and “do great things.”

Perry, the current Secretary of Energy and former Texas governor, said that Trump was God’s “chosen one” to lead the United States, just as he chose the kings to lead Israel in the Old Testament. 

In the clip Perry says:

… God used imperfect people all through history. King David wasn’t perfect, Saul wasn’t perfect, Solomon wasn’t perfect. And I actually gave the president a little one-pager on those Old Testament kings about a month ago. And I shared it with him. I said, ‘Mr. President, I know there are people that say, you know, you were the chosen one. And… I said… you were! If you’re a believing Christian, you understand God’s plan for the people who rule and judge over us on this planet and our government’…

As one might imagine, Perry was roasted on social media for his ridiculous claims. The following is a sample:

Perry frequently makes idiotic claims. Previously Perry claimed that “righteous” fossil fuels prevent sexual assault.

And Perry is not the first Trump cabinet member to make ridiculous claims concerning Trump’s supposed connection to God. Last March Pompeo suggested that God sent President Donald Trump to Earth to save Israel and protect the Jews, claiming that Trump is a possible Queen Esther, poised to defend Israel and save the Jews from Iran.

Bottom line:  Energy Secretary Rick Perry claims President Donald Trump is the “chosen one” sent by God to rule over the United States.
