Bakker told host Steve Strang of Charisma News that Donald Trump is under attack by “evil speech”: “I’ve never seen a man—especially a president—so hated and such evil speech going on. It’s beyond anything I’ve ever seen. There’s a war against our president. There’s a war against Christianity.”
Such anti-Trump rhetoric, he said, is proof that we are living in the Last Days.
Bakker said that God told him that “there’s going to be an attempt on our president’s life very soon,” lamenting that “the world is marching in the streets against our president and it is a war like I’ve never seen before.”
The church “literally elected this man,” Bakker added, noting that the president thanked Bakker personally for supporting his campaign.
“They want to kill him,” he continued. “They’re referring to him as Nixon, they want him impeached. If they cannot kill him with words, they will try to physically murder the president of the United States.”
“The adversary” is out to kill Trump, according to Bakker, because they are upset that Trump unexpectedly won the election, which he described as a “miracle” from God.
