Right-wing pastor Rick Joyner posted a video on his Facebook page today in which he declared that President Trump is a lot like Abraham Lincoln in that he is despised by many while in office but will ultimately be hailed as one of the greatest presidents ever.
Joyner asserted that Trump’s election “was totally, without question, a God thing and that explains why in every situation [where] everybody thinks this is going to do him in, he ends up coming out looking better than ever, he wins every time.”
“I think there is divine favor, divine protection [on Trump] because of his destiny and purpose in helping get our republic back on the tracks,” Joyner said.
Joyner then likened Trump to Lincoln, who he said was able to save the union despite relentless attacks and was eventually recognized for his greatness.
Americans, Joyner said, “did not realize all that [Lincoln] had accomplished until he was gone and no longer a threat, and I think it is going to be that way with Trump.”
Joyner went on to assert that most people who meet Trump really like him, except for those, like former FBI director James Comey, who have something terrible to hide.
“Comey is hiding a lot,” he said. “I think those who are intimidated by [Trump] know he is uncompromising, he’s going to get to the bottom of issues and I do think that the extreme behavior of the liberals and the Democrats and the many people within the deep state and the Obama administration people, many of which are still in positions, I think they’re threatened. I think they’re hiding something so big, so damaging, they’re just doing everything they can to thwart Trump and throw the whole nation off of looking, examining what went on with the Obama administration. That’s the only thing that can explain such extreme behavior.”
