Michele Bachmann, former congresswoman from Minnesota who has been very vocal about her Christian faith in the past, was a guest on Jan Markell’s “Understanding the Times” radio show over the weekend, and during her interview, Bachmann sang praises of both the commander-in-chief and the Lord.
Bachmann lauded Trump’s efforts in the White House, and claimed that the president has been “working non-stop, 70 days in a row” and “hasn’t taken a day off” — all in order to keep his promise to “make America great again.”
Bachmann claimed that Trump is taking a stand for God, and said that he is “unashamed in standing up for increasing an awareness of God” in the United States.
“He recognizes how important that is and that that is a basis of Western civilization,” she continued. “As a believer in Jesus Christ, I could not be more happy with what I am seeing coming out of the Trump White House. This is beyond my wildest expectations.”
Bachmann went on, “The president himself is man of prayer and man who loves to receive prayer. He is a man who, I do believe, understands who the God of the Bible is and he wants to lift up the God of the Bible here in the United States.”
She claimed that “the Lord is working mightily in our government,” and said that she believes “it is because God is being reverenced,” and that “God is being lifted up.”
“Prayer is not foreign in the White House, it’s not foreign in the Executive Office Building,” Bachmann added. “Looking to God, looking through Bible studies, this is not foreign anymore.”
Bachmann noted that the president deserves much praise for bringing a larger awareness of Christianity to America because “[Trump] is somebody who gets the fact that the God of the Bible is, He is, He exists, He is real.”
About Trump, Bachmann added, “This president is very bold about the need for God in our country.”
“I’m shocked at how happy I’ve been with what I’ve seen so far,” she said of the current Trump administration. “I really believe that it’s because of prayer. I totally believe it’s based on prayer. He’s president because of prayer, the advances we’ve seen are based on prayer and I think, going forward, that is what we need.”
