In an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network on March 21, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said it is certainly possible that President Trump, like Queen Esther in the Old Testament, was chosen at this time to protect the Jews of Israel from a menacing Iran.
During the interview, CBN Jerusalem Bureau Chief Chris Mitchell asked Secretary Pompeo, "Could it be that President Trump right now has been sort of raised for such a time as this, just like Queen Esther, to help save the Jewish people from the Iranian menace?"
Secretary Pompeo said, ""As a Christian I certainly believe that's possible."
Then, commenting on his recent trip to Israel, Pompeo said, "It was remarkable. So we were down in the tunnels where we could see 3,000 years ago, and 2,000 years ago — if I have the history just right — to see the remarkable history of the faith in this place and the work that our administration's done to make sure that this democracy in the Middle East, that this Jewish state remains."
