Now that he is president of the most powerful country in the world, President Donald Trump says he needs God more than ever.
Speaking with David Brody of “The Brody File” for the Christian Broadcasting Network, Trump said in a recent interview that the weight of the White House is enormous and that his decisions have massive life or death consequences for real people.
That realization has caused him to lean on God more than ever, Trump told Brody.
“I would say that the office is so powerful that you need God even more,” Trump told Brody. “There’s almost not a decision that you make when you’re sitting in this position that isn’t a really life-altering position. So God comes in even more so.”
“Your decisions are no longer, ‘Gee, I’m going to build a building in New York,’ or ‘I’m going to do this.’ These are questions of massive life and death, even with regard to health care,” Trump explained. “So yes, you realize these decisions are all so important.”
During the interview, Trump also labeled the mainstream media, which openly opposed his presidential candidacy and incorrectly predicted that he would lose to Hillary Clinton, the “opposition party.”
He also said that Christians will love his choice to replace the vacancy on the Supreme Court, which was left after Antonin Scalia passed away early last year.
Trump’s sit-down interview with “The Brody File” of the CBN was only the third sit-down interview of his presidency so far, and it proves that the Trump administration plans to make good on their promise to take interviews and questions from non-mainstream media sources, something the Obama administration rarely did.
The interview will air in its entirety on Sunday at 11 p.m. EST on Freeform, formally known as the ABC Family channel.
