Bachmann Cheers Trump Win: God ‘Did This For Us’

Divine intervention is responsible for Donald Trump being elected president, former Congresswoman Michele Bachmann claimed Tuesday night.

The Hill reported that the Minnesota Republican, during an interview on “Right Wing Watch News,” called the victory by her party’s nominee “proof positive of what the Lord did.” Recalling a prayer circle she attended earlier in the evening, Bachmann said: “This was the moment when the whole race broke, when prayer began, when the church came out and then we see a 30-point swing here, a 30-point swing here and now we see the swing to a 95 percent chance of winning Trump.” She was referring to “election tracker” predictions by The New York Times.

“Already, we know that the glory goes to the God Almighty, the god of the universe, the sovereign Lord. He is the one who did this for us,” the ex-lawmaker proclaimed. Three months ago, Bachmann told CNN: “I actually supported Ted Cruz. I thought he was fabulous, but I also see that at the end of the day, God raised up, I believe, Donald Trump who was going to be the nominee in this election.”

According to The Hill, Bachmann has described Trump as the political version of the movie character Rocky Balboa. The conservative firebrand, who created the Tea Party Caucus in the U.S. House of Representatives, is a member of the president-elect’s Evangelical Executive Advisory Board.
