Pastor who promised Trump’s reelection: Biden isn’t really president — God gave Trump the ‘anointing of leadership’

In a livestream broadcast from his car last Wednesday, right-wing pastor Todd Coconato reassured Christians who are wondering if Donald Trump will become president again, saying that God revealed something “shocking” to him after he prayed on the matter.

“When I prayed about if we’d ever see President Trump as our president again, God just reminded me that he’s the one that chooses the leadership, not us,” Coconato said. “He allows certain things to happen, but he also responds to the prayers of the righteous. And what he was telling me is that just like David—and I think I said this in a past livestream—but just like David, President Trump has the mantle of leadership, has the anointing of leadership.”

“That’s why it’s kind of confusing to saints that are looking and they’re wondering what’s going on,” he continued. “Because they see Joe Biden and they’re like, ‘This guy doesn’t seem like he’s authentic, like he’s real. Is he really the president?’ And I said, ‘God, why are so many people questioning if Joe Biden is the president? I mean, clearly this guy is the president of the United States. Are we to doubt that? Are we not to believe that?’ And God said, ‘It’s about the mantle, the mantle of anointing, which is on President Trump, not Biden.’”

In another livestream from his car back in December, Coconato said that if Christians prayed hard enough, Trump would achieve his goal of overturning the 2020 election’s results and convert atheists to Christianity.
