Soon-to-depart Secretary of Energy Rick Perry said that he believes President Donald Trump was chosen by God to be president of the United States. In an interview with Fox News Perry pointed to Biblical figures from the Old Testament.
“God’s used imperfect people all through history,” Perry said. “King David wasn’t perfect, Saul wasn’t perfect, Solomon wasn’t perfect.”
Perry also mentioned that he gave Trump “a little one-pager on those Old Testament kings” about a month ago.
“I shared it with him and said, ‘Mr. President, I know there are people that say you said you were the chosen one and I said, ‘You were,'” Perry remarked. “I said, ‘If you’re a believing Christian, you understand God’s plan for the people who rule and judge over us on this planet in our government.'”
