Mike Lindell claims a 'prophet guy' predicted he would change history prior to his first meeting with Trump
In a speech given at the Health and Freedom Conference in Tampa, Florida on Friday, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell claimed it was foretold by a man he described as a "prophet guy" that he would someday change human history and the at he believes that led to his first meeting with former president Donald Trump.
According to a report from Newsweek, Lindell -- who has taken the lead in trying to prove the 2020 presidential election was stolen from Trump which has also led to him facing a massive lawsuit -- described being a National Prayer Breakfast where he joined in prayer with former HUD secretary Ben Carson.
In Lindell's telling, "Divine things started happening to me ... I was picked out of 12 people to pray with Ben Carson in a room at the National Prayer Breakfast."
He then added, "... this one prophet guy, he said, 'A couple of you in this room are going to become great friends and change—and help change the course of history,'" before elaborating and telling the audience, "Anyway, these divine appointments kept happening all the way up to where I met Donald Trump in the summer of 2016."
Lindell also revealed that he finally got his one-on-one with the now-one term president on August 15, 2016 and that he came away believing Trump would be "the greatest president in history," Newsweek reports.

According to a report from Business Insider, an excerpt from a book quoted by Politico reveals that former Vice President Mike Pence went out of his way to praise a former administration adviser for confronting Donald Trump over his comments following the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
As reported by Wall Street Journal reporter Michael C. Bender in his new book, "Frankly We Did Win This Election': The Inside Story of How Donald Trump Lost," National Economic Council director Gary Cohn was furious with Trump after he accused both sides of fomenting violence after one woman, Heather Heyer, was run down and killed by a white supremacist.
The report states that the Jewish Cohn, had grown "despondent" with Trump's claim, "We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides - on many sides," and was "increasingly alarmed and uncomfortable" with Trump's take on the events of that day.
The report goes on to claim the Cohn "unloaded" on Trump in a later Oval Office meeting where he told the now ex-president, his "lack of clarity had been harmful to the country" and then threatened to quit.
According to Bender, no one in the meeting backed Cohn, but later Pence stopped by his office minutes later to tell him, "I'm proud of you."
Cohn later stepped down in April 2018.

Trump busted for sticking taxpayers with $2.4 million tab for his visits to his Bedminster golf course
An investigation by NJ.com into Donald Trump's visits as president to just his Bedminster golf club, revealed that the current resident of the cub now that he has lost the 2020 election saddled taxpayers with $2.4 million in bills.
According to the report, based on U.S. Secret Service records, the bulk of the amount, $1.9 million, went to lodge Secret Service agents staying in the Bedminster area with another $35,415 for rooms at the golf club.
The report notes, "The Secret Service also spent $285,219 on travel, $41,499 on rental cars, $80,800 on golf carts, and $46,520 on portable toilets," before adding, "Not included are other costs of Trump's frequent visits to Bedminster, including the estimated $142,000 an hour it costs Air Force One to fly, according to figures obtained by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, and the cost of taking the presidential helicopter from the Morristown Airport to the golf club."
Trump reportedly conducted his private business during his visits to New Jersey --while also promoting his visits by mentioning the club --which led Jordan Libowitz, a spokesperson for CREW to remark, "When President Trump would go to Bedminster, it wasn't because he liked golf — he was making promotional appearances at a business he continued to own and profit off of. Now we know his decision not to divest from his assets cost taxpayers millions of dollars. The Trump Organization should reimburse that money, but we know it won't."
