Former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley appeared on the “700 Club” on Monday where she agreed with Energy Secretary Rick Perry that God had made Donald Trump the president.
Haley was asked by reporter David Brody to comment on whether God played a role in the president’s election. The former ambassador said “everything happens for a reason” and added that “I think God sometimes places people for lessons and sometimes places people for change.”

So God took a serial liar, bigot, adulterer, cheat, crook, and rapist and … made him President? You people are so absurd. Your version of faith is pathetic.

If God did choose Trump it was test this nation and those that support Trump failed the test.

People can Godsplain anything. God didn't put him in that hotel room with the porn star while he was away from his wife and infant child. It took some effort. It probably took a Weinsteinian effort.
