In a new interview out today, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders made headlines with one quote, saying that she believes God wanted Trump to become President.
The interview was with CBN and covered a wide range of topics, but one made headlines.
Take a look:
In a wide-ranging exclusive interview with CBN News, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders says that God wanted Donald Trump to become President of the United States.
"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," Sanders told CBN News Chief Political Analyst David Brody and Senior Washington Correspondent Jennifer Wishon in her West Wing office Wednesday morning.
"That's why he's there and I think he has done a tremendous job in supporting a lot of the things that people of faith really care about," Sanders said.
The Wednesday morning interview lasted nearly 20 minutes and touched on the issues of immigration, anti-Semitism, the morality of a border wall, persecuted Christians in Syria, the White House press briefings, the state of the Democratic Party, her faith and many other topics.

Sanders also had some sharp words for Democratic leaders regarding the anti-Zionist philosophy that appears to have gained a foothold in the party. Recently, it has come to light that some freshman Democrats in the US House of Representatives have either expressed anti-Semitic views in the past or aligned themselves with those that have.
"I think it is outrageous that the leadership of Democrats haven't called on these people to either take their comments back. They haven't condemned them," Sanders charged.
"Anytime somebody who's not even associated with the President says something, the first thing is will you condemn. Will you say that this is terrible?" she asked.
"Where's the leadership on the Democrats' side to call this out? It is unbelievable that this is going totally unchecked, totally off the radar of most of the mainstream media."
On the topic of immigration, Sanders lowered the hypocrisy boom on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The White House Press Secretary said Pelosi's view that a border wall is immoral is absurd and a comment she may come to regret.
"Honestly, it's very hard at this point to even take a lecture from Democrats on what is moral and what isn't," Sanders told CBN News. "People who are willing to allow legislation to pass supporting late-term abortion. The idea that they would take out "So help me God," in the platform that House Democrats have raised this week. But the idea that protecting the people of your country, which is the fundamental duty of being President of the United States would in some way be immoral is a ridiculous charge and something that I think probably, I would think Speaker Pelosi may even regret making that comment because she's seen how ridiculous that sounds and how the evidence is so contrary to that comment."
Meanwhile, the battle over immigration and border wall funding continues. A group of bi-partisan senators and house members met Wednesday to negotiate a deal that may or may not give President Trump some money for the wall. Will the White House take an active role during negotiations?
"No matter what the topic is, he's a natural born leader, and so something that is this big of a priority for him, you can expect him to continue to lead on the effort," Sanders said. "Now we're counting on members of Congress to come together and work out a deal that actually addresses those problems."
On foreign policy, Sanders addressed concerns, especially by evangelicals, that eventually pulling U.S. troops out of Syria will put persecuted Christians, Kurds and other ethnic minorities at risk.
"The President's made clear that we support Christians, that we support the Kurds," Sanders told CBN News. "He's made that clear to Turkey, he's made that clear publicly on a number of fronts, and just one of the reasons that the President has been tough on Iran is to make sure that people don't feel threatened. We've supported the safe zones that are going to be very important, and the idea that the President is just stepping away and ignoring any potential problem doesn't understand the fundamental decision that he's made."
Despite concerns by evangelicals over US policy in Syria, evangelicals have been more than satisfied with President Trump during his first two years in office.
"I would argue he's the most conservative president that we've ever had," Sanders explained. "You look at the judicial nominations alone I think that will be one of the greatest legacies that the president has after his eight years in office is how he has completely remade the judiciary and started to stop this activist court that we've started to see over the last eight years. There's a reason evangelicals are sticking with the president, and that's because he's delivered on all the things he said he would do."
While evangelicals are pleased, the mainstream media press corps isn't. They continue to press Sanders to hold daily press briefings despite a president who has been extremely accessible to the press.
We've covered the topic here before.
Whatever you believe, I'll say this.
No one can definitely say yes or no. Certainly many have said things very similar to what Sarah just said.
While none of us can know for sure, we can say this. It sure does seem like a whole lot of things have lined up in favor of "Teflon Don".
We've covered dozens of examples of the "Trump Boomerang Effect" here at WeLoveTrump, which is the situation where someone attacks Trump only to have it bounce off him and boomerang back to them in the same manner, usually with a TKO!
Time after time, Trump remains unphased and even strengthened by things that conventional wisdom would say should have knocked him out.
So is God behind him?
We don't know for sure, but I definitely wouldn't rule it out!
And here's what we do know for sure, according to the Bible: God appoints rulers and authorities:
Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.
— Romans 13:1
Jesus answered [speaking to Pilate], “You would have no power over me if it were not given to you from above.”
— John 19:11
By me kings reign…
— Proverbs 8:15
…he removes kings, and sets up kings…
— Daniel 2:21
Then God removed Saul and made David their king…
— Acts 13:22
No one … can exalt themselves. It is God who judges: He brings one down, he exalts another.
— Psalms 75:6-7
…the Most High has power over human kingdoms. He gives them to whomever he wishes.
— Daniel 4:17
He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding;
So....what do YOU think?
You with Sarah?
