(EDGE) Former US Rep. Michele Bachmann took to the airwaves last week to praise both the Lord for intervening and installing Donald Trump as a president because he will curb the expansion of LGBT rights.
Speaking on End Times radio program "Understanding the Times with Jan Markell," Bachmann called the election of Trump a "reprieve" from the advancement of LGBT equality that happened under the Obama administration and would have continued under a Clinton presidency.
"When you have the White House lit with the colors of the gay rainbow, that was June 2015, I think that was a low point for a lot of people and it just seemed like every perversion, including this transgender obsession, was just being celebrated; I think God said, 'enough,'" host Jan Markell said.
"And I think the American people said, 'enough,'" replied Bachmann. "And I think they recognized that this was the last exit ramp for the country and if we were not going to see a political change, if Hillary Clinton was going to continue and double down on the policies of Barack Obama, I think people just saw no hope that the United States would return to a position of Judeo-Christian morality."
"We know that [Trump's election] just wasn't in the natural," Bachmann said. "This was in the supernatural where God sovereignly, I believe, answered the prayers of believers beseeching him and he's given us a reprieve. But a reprieve for what? For what? What are we going to do with this? Remember, over 50 years of destruction, destroying the foundations of this country, you don't just turn that on a dime unless God again intervenes."
