Trump tells evangelicals that God is ‘on our side’


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.

Before he left for his rally in Kendall, Trump made his first public comments on the U.S. drone strike that killed Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani, casting the decision as in the interest of peace.

We took action last night to stop a war. We did not take action to start a war,” Trump told reporters at his Mar-a-Lago golf resort.

At the rally, Trump said that he had “ensured that his [Soleimani’s] atrocities have been stopped for good.”

“So let this be a warning to terrorists, if you value your own life, you will not threaten the lives of our own citizens,” Trump said.

Trump’s courtship of the religious vote comes just weeks after a leading evangelical magazine, Christianity Today, published an editorial calling for Trump’s removal from office, calling him “morally lost and confused.”

Exit polls showed that upwards of 80 percent of white evangelical Christians voted for Trump in 2016. While acknowledging that support, Trump told his crowd he hoped it would be even bigger come November.

“We’re going to blow those numbers away in 2020,” Trump said.

  1. I am still on the fence about Trump. He talks a good game, but I think there is a double edged sword; he is being held at bay by the elite through some kind of blackmail or threat…. Or he really is in cahoots with the tribe and continuing the agenda. There have been arguments both ways. He may really believe in a god, but how long until The Arkansas duo and other seditious criminals are hanging from a tree? Action speaks louder than words.

    1. If you can’t see this corporate jew ass sucker for exactly what he is at this point in the ballgame, you are blind in one eye and can’t see out of the other, or retarded.
      R or D, they are all Cs and we are all Gs. Face the truth and make a difference.

    pre emptive strike…..hey trump lay out the evidence of this to the American ‘citizens’

    @trump: you know what is threatening the lives of American Nationals? The southern invasion you are complicit in carrying out

  3. Has chump ever done ANYTHING remotely Christian, Godly, or moral and not dedicated his life to all things joo-ey and satanic?

    The proof is in the walk and not the talk.

    It’s as clear as the nose on a joo’s face who he works for. It’s all he’s ever done and how anyone can fall for it simply evidence of the power of brainwashing and propaganda.

    I thought it was a joke when I first heard this wannabe kike arse kisser was going to “run” for office. NO one in their right mind would ever take a hollyweird reality tv, fortune wasting, con man who strives to be a joo york real estate lackey serious when he says “make america great again”. What idiot would believe such a thing from a guy with decades of the WORST amoral narcissistic behavior and decision making skills?! And HE is going to do that for US? Bahahaha!

    Joke wasn’t just on me, though.
