Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders apparently told the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) that god called Donald Trump to be president, according to an interview transcript provided by the network.
“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 said.

This assertion is not sitting well with a lot of people, to put it mildly. Both his political stance and his personal dealings go against nearly everything that the Christian god appears to have stood for to the point that the actual Pope questioned his supposed faith. Liberal Christians and Christian scholars have repeatedly pointed out the fact that his immigration policies go against the Bible, which commands Christians to love thy neighbor, feed the poor, and accept and take care of immigrants.
Even CBN brought up the border wall, referring to the fact that Nancy Pelosi had called it “immoral.” Sanders’ response was predictable.
“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.”
As has been pointed out many, many times before, migrants pose less of a danger to the U.S. than people who were born within the country’s borders.
God himself was furious at the news that Sanders thinks God wanted Trump to run for President.
OH NO. FUCK NO. NO. NO.

Reasonable god fans and decent people alike came together to point out just how absurd Sanders’ claim is.

@PressSec, did God also tell him to lie to the people every day? Did God tell him to cheat on his wives, to stiff workers, to hate POC, to pull out of the Paris Accord, to treat our allies w/disdain, to cozy up w/ dictators who kill journalists, etc? Curious minds want to know.

Maybe he wanted Donald Trump to RUN for president, as a test of evangelical Christians’ morality and faithfulness to Jesus’s message? In which case, they failed massively.

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?

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
