Right-wing preacher Lance Wallnau streamed a video on Periscope yesterday praising President Trump’s decision to ban transgender people from serving in the military and marveling at how Trump is being used by God to advance the Religious Right’s political agenda.
Wallnau said that the fact that Trump is not a particularly devout Christian works to the advantage of the Religious Right because Christian politicians look upon their fellow Christians as equals, whereas “Trump knows he is not a theologian” and is therefore eager to take advice from Religious Right leaders.
“I don’t think any other Christian would be as strong about Christian stuff as Trump is,” Wallnau said. “He’s proven to be an amazing candidate, he actually needs prayer, wants prayer, invites prayer, doesn’t care if people see people praying for him. No other candidate who has ever been a Christian and running was like that.”
Citing a prophecy made by the late “prophet” Kim Clement that America would one day have a “burning bush in the White House,” Wallnau proclaimed that Trump is the fulfillment of that prediction.
“He is actually getting shaped in the crucible of his warfare and God is making him into the man Kim Clement prophesied,” Wallnau declared. “There would be a burning bush in the White House; I think the burning bush has got golden hair.”
