Secretary of State Mike Pompeo suggested in a televised interview Thursday that God may have sent President Donald Trump to Earth to protect Israel.
Pompeo made the remarks in an interview with Christian Broadcasting Network, or CBN, in Jerusalem, where he visited the Western Wall with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
When the interview turned to Iranian aggression in the Middle East, Pompeo was asked whether he thought “President Trump right now has been sort of raised for such a time as this, just like Queen Esther, to help save the Jewish people from the Iranian menace.”
“As a Christian, I certainly believe that’s possible,” Pompeo responded.
Remarking on “the work that our administration’s done to make sure that this democracy in the Middle East, that this Jewish state, remains,” the secretary of state added: “I am confident that the Lord is at work here.” NBC News.
