“A miracle happened on November 8, 2016,” MyPillow Founder and CEO Mike Lindell declared in a speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Thursday.
With the election of President Donald Trump, God gave the United States “a second chance” for redemption, Lindell said:
“God answered our prayers, our millions of prayers, and gave us grace and a miracle happened on November 8, 2016. We were given a second chance and time granted to get our country back on track with our conservative values and getting people saved in Jesus’ name.
“As I stand before you today, I see the greatest president in history. Of course he is, he was chosen by God.
“I see record low unemployment, from African-Americans to Hispanics, at an all-time low. I see five million new jobs created since Donald Trump took office. I see wages going up. Entrepreneurs are taking risks again, with consumer confidence at an all-time high. I see GDP growth approaching four percent. I see ISIS demolished and trade deals getting made and getting done. I see promises made and promises kept.”
Lindell also recounted two encounters with Trump in 2015 that helped convince him that God had called Trump to lead the country:
“I now bring you back in time to the summer of 2015. I see Donald Trump coming down an escalator and announcing he’s running for president.
“For me, it was a divine and miraculous moment. I felt that something miraculous was about to unfold. Then, I found myself wanting to learn something I knew nothing about, which was politics.”
“I see myself in divine appointments, and one was especially important. Donald Trump invited me to meet him at Trump Tower in New York City. I walked into his office with high hopes on August 15 2016.
“I walked out of that office after meeting with him and I knew God had chosen him for such a time as this.”
