SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said she believes God wanted Donald Trump to become president in 2016.
Sanders made the comment during an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network.
“I think God calls all of us to fill different roles at different times,” she told CBN’s Chief Political Analyst David Brody and Senior Washington Correspondent Jennifer Wishon. “I think that he wanted Donald Trump to become president, and that’s why he’s there.”
“I think he has done a tremendous job in supporting a lot of the things that people of faith really care about,” she added.
The interview, published Jan. 30, also covered topics such as antisemitism, border security, international policy, Iran, and the lack of daily White House briefings.
“Their job is not to get information, which is what the briefing is supposed to be,” she said of journalists who complained about the briefings being pared back. “It’s to trip you up. And I think if the briefing loses purpose and it isn’t a good resource for the American people to get information and answers to real questions then you do have to wonder if that’s the best form in order to put a message out.”
