White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told the Christian Broadcasting Network that she believes Donald Trump’s election was desired by God.

This was not the first time the press secretary cited religion in defense of her boss.

Last summer, she claimed that the Trump administration’s child separation policy is “very biblical” when CNN’s Jim Acosta pressed her on whether the policy is in keeping with her religious mores.

Immediately after New York Times reporter Alan Rappeport tweeted about Sanders’ CBN comment, Twitter went into an uproar.

Well, the good news is Trump hasn’t entirely lost his mind — or so he says

Published

on

Donald Trump, 74, bragged last week during a Sean Hannity interview that he had “aced” a recent cognition test at Walter Reed Hospital.

Trump boasted that doctors witnessing the test “said that’s an unbelievable thing. Rarely does anybody do what you just did.” He then challenged Democrat Joe Biden, 77, to match him.
