In an exclusive interview with the Brody File, televangelist Paula White tells us that Donald Trump's presidential run has the hand of God on it. Pastor White has been a close friend and spiritual mentor to Trump for close to 15 years. During our interview, she also talked about how Trump "knows God" and enjoys watching Christian television.
This interview was done Monday night in New York City. Watch our report below along with a partial transcription from parts of the interview. Paula White doesn't have an interest in politics. Her passion is the gospel and Jesus. She believes her mission is to show the face of Jesus to Trump and everyone she comes in contact with.
White: Fourteen years ago approximately, I received a phone call, and they said 'Mr. Trump is on the line. ... I get on the phone and he starts to quote back to me three sermons that I preached. I mean verbatim. He said, 'It really ministered to me. ... I loved your preaching.' ... David, quite honestly, he doesn't know our Christianese and perhaps our language that we know in the Christian world. ... The way he discovered Paula White was watching Christian television, and Mr. Trump has always been a huge fan. He'd always watch Christian television. He loves Southern Gospel. One of his favorites is the Gaithers. For a birthday or an anniversary or something, I'd send him up Bill Gaither's tapes or books or sermons by this person. Because he absolutely enjoys hearing the Word.
"There's no way in the natural, if we were to use this terminology, that you could take a man against 17 other candidates that if we look back at the beginning of this, very qualified candidates, and then here he is, the nominee. For me, that has to be providence. That has to be the hand of God, in my opinion."
