TV evangelist: Trump is a born again Christian but was told to keep it secret

During an appearance in the Truth & Liberty podcast this Monday, far-right pastor Andrew Wommack said that President Trump is enacting the agenda of the Religious Right in secret.

During a show segment flagged by Right Wing Watch, answered a question from a viewer who wondered how evangelicals can support Trump in light of his “immoral actions, behavior, character, and words.”

The consensus from the panel was that despite Trump’s sometimes less-than-Christian behavior, God is using him to advance the agenda of Christians.

“[Trump is] always saying something offensive,” Wommack said. “But all that stuff aside, if you look at what he’s done, I think he has done more to advance and protect Christianity than any president in my lifetime.”

Wommack then claimed that he has a friend who “talks to Trump every week” who knows for a fact that Trump has been “born again” as a Christian.

“I know at least three people who have prayed with Trump and say he got born again,” Wommack said.

“This man believes Trump did get saved but he counseled him not to make this an issue because people would look at it as that is his conversion experience so that he could sweep his past under the rug.”

Wommack added that if outspoken Christians like Mike Huckabee or Ted Cruz had won the presidency, “the liberals would have been up in arms—’it’s a theocracy, these are Christians taking over’—and nobody is accusing Trump of that.”

So it’s like a stealth thing,” Wommack continued. “God has snuck in and he is doing more godly things than probably any president in my lifetime has done, but it’s not being done under the guise of a Christian.”
