The name of God was recently invoked during a White House meeting, in which one of Trump’s own members of staff profusely thanked the lord for bestowing such a president upon the world.
Housing and urban development Ben Carson, who is something of a Trump loyalist, opened up a White House cabinet meeting with a two-minute prayer thanking God for the existence of Donald Trump.
The clip made its way online, as these things are wont to do, and it’s receiving quite a bit of scrutiny for its, well, bizarre nature.
Carson began by thanking God the “the blessings that you have bestowed upon this country.”
He continued by speaking of the divisive US president explicitly.
We thank You for President Trump, who also exhibits great courage in face of constant criticism.
We ask you give him strength to endure and wisdom to lead and to recognise you as the sovereign of the universe, with the solution to everything.
Give us all an understanding heart and a compassion, those are the things that will Keep America Great.
In the clip Donald Trump listened sombrely with eyes closed.
