My 4-Year Journey With Trump: ‘Don’t Make Him a Prisoner of His Past’

By The Stream Published on May 22, 2020

President Lincoln had a saying: “If you want to get rid of an enemy, make him your friend.”

On Thursday’s episode of LIFE Today, host and Stream founder James Robison gave a peek into one of his life’s most amazing, surprising, and interesting journeys: from “Almost Anybody But Trump” in 2016 to close friend of President Trump and the Trump family.

“This isn’t a political message,” James made clear. “This is a message of hope, concern and answered prayer.”

As Christians, we know that our hope is found only in one person, Jesus Christ, but He often answers the prayers of His people in unlikely ways and through unlikely people. According to James, prayers for the president are bearing fruit. “We are seeing the answer to prayers in this man’s life and in his family and in those around him.”

He speaks of praying with Trump, seeing his heart up close. “This president is convinced there is one Father that knows best. He really wants to hear from that Father. He does not want to get up and talk about a bunch of religious stuff. Like he’s trying to impress you. I’ve told him ‘Your actions will always speak louder than your words.”

James spoke of Trump’s actions during the COVID-19 crisis and his passion for raising up each and every American, in the face of a media desperate to shoot him down. “I’m telling you,” said James, “this man and his family are worthy of your prayers. Don’t make him or anyone a prisoner of the past.”
