Former Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) said that God was responsible for Donald Trump’s victory, and that the night should convince “believers” and pastors of “the power of prayer.”
“Already we know that the glory goes to the God Almighty, the God of the
Universe, the Sovereign Lord. He is the one who did this for us,” Bachmann said on a live broadcast of “America Stands: Election Coverage in the Spirit of Faith” on Tuesday night, organized by Kenneth Copeland Ministries.
“We have a prayer room here. We had people all across the United States joining with our prayer room here in Dallas in prayer, and look what happened […] it’s phenomenal.”
Bachmann used the now-infamous New York Times Upshot election tracker which, after 8:30 p.m., began a nosedive, creating an almost too-neat “X” in its data sets and flip-flopping election projections from roughly 80 percent Clinton to an eventual 95 percent Trump.
“This was the moment when the whole race broke, when prayer began, the church came out and then we see a 30-point swing here, a 30-point swing here, and now we see the swing to a 95 percent chance of winning Trump,” Bachmann said, gesturing at the graphic.
“His people got on their knees and cried out to holy God and said we can’t go down this road anymore. Father, we ask you for your mercy. And this is the proof positive of what the Lord did. The Lord did this.”
Bachmann’s election coverage was streamed live online and a portion of it aired on Daystar Television. Right Wing Watch recorded part of Bachmann’s analysis.
