Michele Bachmann on Trump: We'll 'Never See a More Godly, Biblical President'
Former Rep praises president on conservative Christian radio program
Former Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) praised president Donald Trump in an interview saying she has “never seen a more biblical president."
Bachmann was interviewed on a conservative Christian radio program called “Understanding the Times” where she said, “We could go on what the president has done with standing for righteousness in so many areas."
“One being Barack Obama had demanded and commanded that our military services had to literally go out and recruit people who are transgender to come into the military,” she said.
Well, it costs about a quarter of a million dollars to do sex reassignment surgery.”
“Why would you recruit people who would come in and have sex reassignment surgery and be on the sidelines? It made no sense, so Donald Trump got rid of that mandate and that requirement,” she continued.
Bachmann was highlighting the previous ban the Obama administration lifted on transgender service in 2016.
Trump has since rolled out a policy barring most transgender people from military service.
“He has stood up where most Republicans wouldn't dare to stand up,” Bachmann said of Trump.
“Donald Trump has had the courage in the fortitude, and I will say to your listeners in my lifetime. I have never seen a more biblical president than I have seen in Donald Trump.”
“He has so impressed me with what he's done, and we haven't even talked about Israel,” Bachmann said.
She then followed up by saying she saw Trump as “highly biblical.”
“And I would say to your listeners we will in all likelihood never see a more godly, biblical president again in our lifetimes, so we need to be not only praying for him; we need to support him, in my opinion,” she added.
Bachmann served on Trump’s evangelical advisory board in the past.
She has in the past praised Trump's presidential victory in 2016 as “proof positive of what the Lord did.”
