Megachurch pastor David Jeremiah, who leads the Shadow Mountain Community Church in El Cajon, California, says that now that Donald Trump is president, he feels a “greater sense of security” as an American citizen. “I’ll be honest with you, I feel safer as a citizen because he’s my president,” Jeremiah told CBN last Thursday.
“I feel like there’s a greater sense of security in our country even though people don’t want to talk about it,” said Jeremiah, who also founded Turning Point Radio and Television Ministries.
While he doesn’t like some of the things Trump “says and the way he says them,” Jeremiah doesn’t appear too concerned since, he said, the New York City billionaire “is not my pastor.”
Jeremiah also pointed to a few more positive outcomes of Trump’s presidency so far, such as the improving economy.
“Right now, we are in the best economic situation I can ever remember in terms of the stock market being $5 trillion more than it was in November,” he said
“Many of the experts say we’re in the process of getting prepared for a big downturn, but nobody knows that, and I don’t know that,” Jeremiah added. “I just know that ultimately if we don’t deal with our debt, then there’s not a lot of good news long-term.”
“Obviously, he’s making a difference in many areas. He’s making a difference economically; nobody wants to talk about it, but I just mentioned what’s happened to the stock market since he’s been in office.”
