White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said she believes God wanted President Donald Trump to win the 2016 election, the CBN reported on Wednesday.
“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,” Sanders told CBN’s reporters.
Sanders’ response came after CBN’s reporter questioned whether she was asked if it “blew” that Trump was the sitting president.
Sanders added: “I think he has done a tremendous job in supporting a lot of the things that people of faith really care about.”
President Donald Trump on Monday praised lawmakers of six states for allowing public schools to offer Bible literacy classes.
“Numerous states introducing Bible Literacy classes, giving students the option of studying the Bible. Starting to make a turn back? Great!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

Evangelical Christians make up a loyal part of Trump’s base. The president told evangelical leaders in the White House in August 2018 that the government’s “attacks on communities of faith” are over.
In 2018, President Trump made the remark: “In America, we don’t worship government, we worship God.”
Above all else, we know that faith and family, not government and bureaucracy, are at the center of American life. We know that. Because in America, we don’t worship government, we worship God.
