Rep. Ilhan Omar (D.-Minn.) has sent out a Tweet reacting to White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ statement that God wanted Donald Trump to be president.

“God has a strange sense of humor!” Ilhan said.

Ilhan’s remarks were made along with a retweet of a story in the Hill about Sanders’s statement.

Sanders made the statement on Wednesday on the Christian Broadcasting Network in response to a question from CBN’s David Brody. Here is Omar's Tweet and exchange between Brody and Sanders:

David Brody: From a spiritual perspective, for such a time as this, Donald Trump of all people. To be, as you said earlier in the interview, the most conservative president. I mean, does it kind of in a way blow your mind that, you know, someone like Donald Trump, who is sitting in the Oval Office. I mean, I know you can list the accomplishments, but at the same time, just from a spiritual perspective, there are a lot of Christians that believe for such a time as this.

Sanders: “I think God calls all of us to fill different roles at different times and I think that He wanted Donald Trump to become president. And that’s why he’s there. And I think he has done a tremendous job in supporting a lot of the things that people of faith really care about.”
