Sarah Sanders: God ‘wanted Donald Trump to become president’

Jan 31, 2019

By Kate Sullivan

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said she believes God wanted President Donald Trump to win the 2016 election, the Christian Broadcasting Network reported on Wednesday.

“I think God calls all of us to fill different roles at different times and I think that he wanted Donald Trump to become president, and that’s why he’s there,” Sanders told CBN’s David Brody and Jennifer Wishon, according to a transcript of the interview provided by CBN.

“I think he has done a tremendous job in supporting a lot of the things that people of faith really care about,” Sanders added.

When asked about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi calling Trump’s proposed wall along the US southern border “immoral,” Sanders told CBN, “The idea that protecting the people of your country, which is the fundamental duty of being president of the United States, would in some way be immoral is a ridiculous charge.”

  • From article above:

    Sarah Sanders said she believes God wanted President Donald Trump to win the 2016 election,

    What rational people know at this point is that Donald Trump is President because the Russians wanted Donald Trump to win and a large percentage of the American public said, “Duh, ok then!”

     

    Maybe God wants Donald Trump to be arrested soon along with his evil entourage. God wants that. I feel it!

    Also, God wants Sarah Sanders to disappear back to where she came from.

  • Can’t argue with Sarah.  If god exists, and is almighty as alleged, then ipse facto, by definition, everything which occurs is down to him.  Including Pol Pot, Hitler, Brexit, tsunamis, etc.  The trouble with Christians is that they credit God with all the good things and blame us for all the bad, even things which we obviously have no part in, volcanoes, bushfires, tsunamis, earthquakes etc.. (They’re condign punishment for our evil, licentious lifestyles).

    It must be wonderful to be like Sarah, able to read the mind of god, and to understand his vindictive, self obsessed, demanding, high maintenance, capricious mind.  She is either of the elect (Calvinism), or prays more than we do (RC).

    I think we need to revive the concept of the Devil. Christians these days have relegated him to the sidelines but it seems more logical to me that if “someone” is producing all the good in this world, then “someone” must be producing all the bad too. If God is love then Satan must be hate.

    I say, as humans, let’s not take the blame for the good and bad in this world. If our interlocutor attributes agency to every natural process and result then let’s force consistency upon them!

     

    God is love

    Satan is hate

  • I quite agree with you Laurie.  But, the bible does not clearly identify His Satanic Majesty.  According to tradition he was the brightest of the angels, Lucifer (Latin Lux), but got God’s goat by being  arrogant, so God kicked him out, without due process.  Lucifer could well have had a claims for wrongful dismissal  and for wrongful eviction, he should have appointed me as his Union rep.

    To get back to the point, the whole tradition of the Devil is spread in small ambiguous shards throughout the Bible, and owes more to ancient tradition than to accepted text.   If God created Lucifer he must have been well aware of the design flaw, which caused his creature to kick over the traces and become overly self -assertive – so even if we do rehabilitate him, he is still ultimately God’s creation.   Not our fault!

    In the book Outrage (about the OJ Simpson trial of all things) Vincent Bugliosi – famous prosecutor from the Manson trial – in an aside later on in the book while explaining how he drifted from Catholicism to agnosticism suggests that it makes far more sense for religious folks to believe in and pray to the devil. His logic is why must we persuade an all knowing, all good force to do that which s/he would already be inclined to do. Clearly, the evil in all cases was the work of the devil who’s always seemed to have outsized power in religious vernacular. Therefore Xtians should pray to the force responsible for evil in asking for mercy or favors. Makes sense to me 😉

    Absolutely perfect sense!

    he should have appointed me as his Union rep.

    Ha! True.

    But also, if God created us puny humans in his image as the Bible tells us, can we assume that he also created the angels (including Satan) in his image as well? With all those wasted hours of Sunday school, I don’t remember ever covering that important point. Deep theology.
