Donald Trump — Holy Ground

Why do we support Donald Trump? Because America was on the Sodom road.

President Donald Trump bows his head in prayer as pastor Paula White leads the room in prayer during a dinner for evangelical leaders in the State Dining Room of the White House, Monday, Aug. 27, 2018, in Washington.

On Monday, August 27th, the White House hosted a dinner in honor of evangelical leadership. It was truly on the level of a State dinner.

I attended and spoke briefly at that dinner but when I saw the media reports about the evening I could not believe what I was reading. As a journalist for over 40 years I can only describe what I read as fake news. 

President Trump allowed us to speak that evening. It was mostly ministers praying, preaching and praising God for His blessings. The only words I can use to describe the dinner at the White House are “Holy Ground”.  

Donald Trump has exceeded our wildest expectations, certainly mine concerning Israel. Without a doubt he is the best US President for Israel.

The Unlikely Person

Why do we support Donald Trump? Because America was on the Sodom road. We all saw the handwriting of God’s judgement coming like a freight train on America. However, God chose the most unlikely person to make America great again, Donald Trump. What a shock to have a president tell us the truth and refuse to play the political game.

Yes, Donald Trump, like all of us, is a sinner but we have no doubt that he has come to the Savior. And when Donald Trump says “Merry Christmas,” it is because of his personal faith.

No other president in America has allowed a group of evangelicals to pray over them in the Oval Office.  I’ve been there when it’s happened twice — it was Holy Ground!  No president has given an Evangelical group a private tour of the residence as he gave us.

It seems previous presidents have used us when they needed our vote, Donald Trump does the opposite, he embraces us as family. We are strong leaders with a Biblical view and we are free to speak truth to power.

The Real Reason The Secular Media Hates Trump

Why does the secular media hate him so?  Because the new wars of the 21st Century are fueled and fed by a media that embraces a secular, humanistic worldview that rejects moral absolutes.  I asked a joint chief of staff years ago to tell me what determines when wars begin and end, he whispered in my ear “the media”.


Stream founder James Robison was also at the dinner. His reflection based on his experience can be found here.

    Pastor Chuck Baldwin of Liberty Fellowship in Montana had a dissenting sermon this week (While I disagree in detail, I do think it is a proper warning). It is based on 1 Kings 22.

    Trump can correct this by coming out and saying publicly he has accepted Christ as his personal savior. Right now it seems like he is at best Constantine delaying his baptism. More plusses for renouncing his past sins.

    There are words – and papers – and actions. This is the paradox. Dubya and Jeb! let Terri Schiavo be tortured to death in an Auschwitz like starvation bunker in Pinellas County in Florida. Trump is actually fighting evil by all apparent acts.

    However instead of a love-in, where were the preachers DEMANDING he close the government until Planned Parenthood and all Abortions and those supporting them are defunded. (Next: repeal the FACE act, or don’t enforce it)

    You write, “What a shock to have a president tell us the truth and refuse to play the political game.”
    But President Trump does play political games constantly, and that includes some occasional big, fat lies.
    You have “no doubt” that he is a Christ-follower, yet he has never admitted he needs a Savior. In fact, during the campaign, he publicly denied his need for forgiveness. And he still frequently displays bitterness, pettiness, and egomania.
    Instead of saying, “I sinned, I messed up, America, by having an affair with Stormy,” he paid her to be silent.
    Trump has done many good things as president, as well as some bad things (besides personal behavior, he signed the bill giving Planned Parenthood $500M, and his protectionism is bad policy).
    So let’s stop blindly idolizing him.
    Let’s say “Good job!” when he does something well, and let’s say “That’s not right!” when he messes up.

    BTW, Paula White? Seriously?
