“I think that is why there is so much of an attack on Donald Trump in America,” Gallups said. “I think this is very spiritual … and, at some levels, very demonic, a demonic attack.”
Gallups said that “Satan hates” Trump’s support for Israel and so “Satan is raising up antagonism right here in America” against the president.
“A lot of people don’t know it, they think it is all political,” he added. “I think a lot of it is deeply, deeply spiritual. You talk about the deep state? There is a deeper state.”
Later in the broadcast, Bakker urged viewers to support his network, saying that God wants his daily television program to remain on the air because it is not only important to Trump personally but vital to helping Republicans maintain control of Congress in the upcoming midterm elections. Bakker claimed that Trump called him directly after the 2016 election and spent 20 minutes thanking him and telling him that his show “was one of the things that made a big difference in this election.”
“The spirit of Antichrist is trying to destroy all Gospel,” Bakker warned. “Christian television, if the enemy, if the opposition ever gets a hold of this country again; believe me, you have no idea how much this world hates the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”
“They hate Trump so bad, I’m afraid they might even have him assassinated,” Bakker said, asking Gallups what will happen “if we have a switch back to an anti-Christ government” in the midterms.
“The light will go out and it will get dark quickly,” Gallups responded.
