On Monday night, televangelist Kenneth Copeland’s Believers Voice of Victory network aired a special live broadcast of President Trump’s address on Afghanistan that featured commentary from Religious Right pseudo-historian David Barton and various others.
At one point, Copeland himself called in to the program and rejoiced that America is finally going to win the conflict in Afghanistan because Trump “has put himself in the hands of God.”
“Everything changes today,” Copeland said. “I believe with all my heart—and I didn’t hear this from the Lord, I just know this from being around a long time—I believe with all my heart that this is truly the beginning of the end. I really do, because this man has adopted correct procedures.”
“This man has put himself in the hands of God,” he continued. “We’re watching the spirit of God give new birth to this nation and we’re going back to the principles—it’s like going back and dancing with the one that brung ya—I mean he’s going back to the principles of this nation that won every war we ever fought until we changed those principles.”
