Pompeo on God Sending Trump to Save the Jews: It’s ‘Possible’
By Jason Devaney
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a new interview it is “possible” God sent President Donald Trump to save the Jewish people from Iran.
“As a Christian, I certainly believe that’s possible,” Pompeo told the Christian Broadcasting Network from Jerusalem when asked if Trump compares to the modern-day Esther, a figure in the Bible who helped save the Jewish people.
“So, we were down in the tunnels where we could see 3,000 years ago, and 2,000 years ago — if I have the history just right — to see the remarkable history of the faith in this place and the work that our administration’s done to make sure that this democracy in the Middle East, that this Jewish state remains.”
Pompeo, whose remarks came on the same day Trump said the United States should officially recognize the disputed Golan Heights as part of Israel, added he feels God is playing a role in the matter.
“I am confident that the Lord is at work here,” he said.
