Bachmann told Family Research Council chief Tony Perkins on his “Washington Watch” program that Trump “hit a total grand slam,” explaining that his policies of mass deportation, building a border wall and curtailing legal immigration will stop America from turning “against God.”
Bachmann explained that in order to turn the country back to God, we must abandon immigration policies that “prefer those who do not hold to a Christian worldview”:
We saw President Trump last night, very clearly. It was extremely presidential. But what he did was hit a total grand slam on what I believe is the most important public policy issue facing the nation. I think for your audience, for you and I, we recognize the number one issue facing this nation is a nation that has been turning its way against God, that’s number one, but number two in public policy would be immigration.
And why is that true? Because we have historically been a Judeo-Christian nation decidedly built on a biblical worldview and since 1965 America’s stated immigration policies have been to prefer those who do not hold to a Christian worldview and that’s had a profound impact on the United States.
