Former Representative Michele Bachmann (R-MN) said that Donald Trump is the most “biblical” president America will ever have.
Bachmann appeared on Jan Markell’s conservative radio show Understanding the Times this past weekend, where she discussed the “Deep State” – a far-right conspiracy theory that says that career government employees are working to undermine Trump – and “cultural and economic Marxism” – an anti-semitic trope that says that Jews are trying to change Western culture to make people more readily accept socialism.
She went on to say that listeners should pray “that God would expose these hidden deeds of darkness.”
“I will say to your listeners, in my lifetime I have never seen a more biblical president than I have seen in Donald Trump,” Bachmann said. “He has so impressed me in what he has done, and we haven’t even talked about Israel. What he has done to advance Israel.”
“He is highly biblical and we will in all likelihood never see a more godly, biblical president again in our lifetime. So we not only need to be praying for him, we need to support him, in my opinion, in every way that we can.”

At last year’s Values Voter Summit, Bachmann said that Trump was God’s answer to Christians’ prayers.
“I believe that the prayers that God’s people made to ask God for his provision were heard,” she said at the time. “They were heard and granted and for two years, we have lived in an unparalleled golden time in the United States.”
In 2011, her husband Marcus Bachmann admitted to working at a clinic that practices conversion therapy, but he added that it is only practiced “at the client’s discretion.”
