A Republican senator has claimed that it is a “biblical miracle” that Donald Trump became President of the United States, as part of his remarks on the repeal of Obamacare. Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL), who was appointed to fill the seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions and is currently running to retain that seat, was speaking at a forum hosted by the Montgomery County Republican Committee.
He said, “President Trump is the greatest thing that’s happened to this country. I consider it a biblical miracle that he’s there.”
Strange then called for the repeal of the Obamacare health care law, which he called a “disaster.”
“We’re going to take care of the most vulnerable of our citizens,” the GOP senator said.
Strange is described as a “Constitutional conservative and pro-life Christian” on his Senate website.
Trump remains a controversial figure across America religious and political circles, though he has been backed by some notable megachurch pastors, such as Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Dallas.
Jeffress, who serves on Trump’s evangelical advisory board, pushed back in an interview with The Christian Post against those who criticized his “Celebrate Freedom” concert at Washington’s Kennedy Center earlier in July, which Trump attended.
“No one is worshiping Donald Trump. What we are doing is showing respect for our president and praying God’s blessings on him as he leads our nation,” Jeffress told CP.
“That is the biblical and Christian thing to do,” he said.
