Published

on

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

““I think God calls all of us to fill different roles at different times,” she told the religious broadcaster, “and I think that he wanted Donald Trump to become president.”

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.

“So did God want @BarackObama to be president?” David Corn, co-author of Russian Roulette, an investigative book on Trump’s relationship with Russia, mused. “Or did he take off those eight years?”

"[email protected] was measured & decisive today. @SpeakerPelosi walking out was baffling but not surprising w NO intention of participating in a mtg on nat’l security.

Republicans lack the ‘moxie’ to defend America’s Kurdish allies in Syria: Ex-RNC Chair

Published

Republicans will criticize President Donald Trump on foreign policy, but lack the nerve to do anything meaningful to protect America's Kurdish allies in northern Syria, the former chair of the Republican Party explained on MSNBC on Wednesday.

MSNBC's Chuck Todd interviewed Steele about what it would take for Republicans to serve as a check on the president.

"I think the only way to make him change his mind is -- he’s got to think they might walk," Todd said.

"Well, that would require a level of moxie that we haven’t seen from the leadership," Steele replied.
