During a recent interview, former Republican lawmaker Michele Bachmann praised President Trump for his Christian faith, stating she has “never seen a more biblical president.”
Bachmann noted that Trump has made a point of “standing for righteousness in so many areas,” including his efforts to address Barack Obama’s mandate requiring the military to recruit transgender individuals.
“He has stood up where most Republicans wouldn’t dare to stand up,” said Bachmann. “Donald Trump has had the courage and the fortitude,” noting, “in my lifetime, I have never seen a more biblical president than I have seen in Donald Trump.”
Bachmann added, “we will, in all likelihood, never see a more godly, biblical president again in our lifetimes – so we need to be not only praying for him, we need to support him.”
From The Hill:
During her interview with a conservative Christian radio program called “Understanding The Times” during the weekend, Bachmann said “we could go on [with] what the president has done with standing for righteousness in so many areas.”
“One being Barack Obama had demanded and commanded that our military services had literally go out and recruit people who are transgender to come into the military,” she said. “Well, it costs about a quarter of a million dollars to do sex reassignment surgery.”
“Why would you recruit people who would come in and have sex reassignment surgery and be on the sidelines? It made no sense. So, Donald Trump got rid of that mandate and that requirement,” she continued.
Bachmann was referring to the previous ban the Obama administration lifted on transgender service in 2016. The Trump administration has since rolled out a policy barring most transgender people from serving in the military that took effect on Friday.
“He has stood up where most Republicans wouldn’t dare to stand up,” Bachmann went on to say of Trump. “Donald Trump has had the courage in the fortitude and I will say to your listeners in my lifetime I have never seen a more biblical president than I have seen in Donald Trump.”
“He has so impressed me with what he’s done and we haven’t even talked about Israel,” Bachmann said before adding that she sees Trump as “highly biblical.”
“And I would say to your listeners we will in all likelihood never see a more godly biblical president again in our lifetimes so we need to be not only praying for him we need to support him in my opinion,” she added.
Bachmann has served as a member of Trump’s Evangelical Executive Advisory Board in the past. She also previously hailed Trump’s presidential victory in 2016 as “proof positive of what the Lord did.”
