Bachmann Says ‘God Raised Up’ Trump To Be GOP Nominee (VIDEO)

Former Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), who has been advising Donald Trump on foreign policy, said on Tuesday that God played a role in the real estate mogul becoming the Republican presidential nominee.

“I actually supported Ted Cruz. I thought he was fabulous but I also see that at the end of the day God raised up, I believe, Donald Trump who was going to be the nominee in this election,” Bachmann said on CBN’s “The Brody File.” “I don’t think God sits things out. He’s a sovereign God. Donald Trump became our nominee.”

Bachmann cited the Book of Daniel, which she said “teaches us that the most high God lifts up who He will and takes down who he will.”

“I think it’s very likely that in the day that we live in, that Donald Trump is the only individual who could win in a General Election of the 17 who ran,” she told “The Brody File.” “Maybe I’m wrong, I don’t know but I do know that the Bible is true and that Daniel teaches the most high God, which is one of God’s names, is the one who lifts up who he will and takes down who he will.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
