CBS News reports:
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network Wednesday that she believes God wanted Donald Trump to become president. Sanders said she believes God calls everyone to fill different roles, and that he wanted Mr. Trump to lead the country.
“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 and I think he has done a tremendous job in supporting a lot of the things that people of faith really care about.”
Sanders didn’t expand — and wasn’t pressed — on whether she believes God has also selected previous presidents, like Barack Obama, whom Mr. Trump often bashes.
