The Rushmore Report: What Trump Just Said About His Need for God


In a recent interview with David Brody, of the Christian Broadcast Network, President Trump said four amazing things. He spoke of the media as “the opposition party.” He voiced his thoughts on the new Supreme Court nominee. He addressed the refugee crisis. But he saved the best for last. President Trump spoke out about his personal need for God – more now than ever.

1. “The opposition party”

Comparing the media to the Democratic Party, Trump said of the media, “I think to a large extent they’re much more capable than the other side.” He continued, “I think the media is the opposition party in many ways. A big portion of the media – the dishonesty, total deceit and deception – it makes them certainly partially the opposition party, absolutely.”

2. Replacing Scalia

When asked what kind of Justice Trump would nominate, he said, “I think people are going to love it. I think evangelicals, Christians will love my pick and will be represented very fairly.”

3. The refugee crisis

President Trump showed a special affinity for persecuted Christians. “They’ve been horribly treated. Do you know if you were a Christian in Syria it was impossible, at least very tough, to get into the United States. If you were a Muslim you could come in, but if you were a Christian, it was almost impossible.”

4. His need for God

Brody asked, Do you feel the need to pray more now that you are President?” Trump replied, “Well, I’ll tell you what. I’ve always felt the need to pray, and you know that. So, I would say that the office is so powerful that you need God even more because your decisions are no longer ‘Gee, I’m going to build a building in New York,’ or ‘I’m going to do this.’ These are questions of massive life and death, even with regard to health care. You know we’re working very hard on health care. But there, you’re talking about life and death and you’re talking about better lives.”
