Mike Lindell, the founder and CEO of MyPillow.com—which advertises relentlessly in right-wing media—was given a speaking slot at this year’s CPAC convention, where he declared that President Trump is “the greatest president in history” because he was “chosen by God.”
Lindell recounted that he had a “divine appointment” with then-candidate Trump in 2016, which he left convinced that “God had chosen him for such a time as this.”
“God answered our millions of prayers and gave us grace and a miracle happened on November 8, 2016,” he said. “We were given a second chance and time granted to get our country back on track with our conservative values and getting people saved in Jesus’ name. As I stand before you today, I see the greatest president in history. Of course he is, he was chosen by God.”
On the website of the Lindell Foundation, there’s an option to donate to an initiative called Pulse. “We have a heart for the cynics and skeptics, the hurting and hopeless, to know Jesus,” reads the cryptic description above the “Donate” button.
Lindell is also building a platform called MyStore, through which inventors will be able to sell their wares.
