Update: Charisma reports that Amedia no longer has a formal role in Trump’s campaign. We’ve updated this post to reflect that.
This morning, Donald Trump joined an event for pastors in Cleveland co-hosted by his former “liaison for Christian policy,” Frank Amedia. At the event, Amedia repeated his claim that Trump has been called by God to lead the nation, ironically insisting that Trump supporters “want to tear the walls down of division in the country” that are stopping their candidate.
Amedia asked the audience to join him in a “Jericho shout,” a reference to the biblical Battle of Jericho in which Joshua’s army collapses the city’s walls with a trumpet call and a shout.
“We want to tear the walls down of division in the country and the walls that have built themselves up to oppose a man that God has called to bring us to a new place,” Amedia said of Trump. “We are on a journey together. And it is a movement, even as Mr. Trump says, but this movement is also a Kingdom movement that we know God has released running parallel.”
“Lord, we ask you to release a spirit upon this nation to vote and to vote those principles of faith that we believe in so dearly,” he prayed, asking that God might let Trump’s “airplane sail on the wings of an angel.”

At the same event, another pro-Trump pastor, Darrell Scott, warned that Trump is under “ concentrated satanic attack” and boxing promoter Don King declared that Trump will “lead us to the Promised Land.”
