Evangelist and convicted felon Jim Bakker claimed on his TV show on June 25 that God chose President Donald Trump to hold office so that Christians have time to prepare for the End Times, which Bakker sells food buckets for.
Bakker marveled at how Trump — who praised murderous North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un — is reviled by half of Americans, notes Right Wing Watch:
Have you ever seen a time when we hate our president like the people do now? Literally half the nation hates the president and would probably kill him if they got a chance.
Bakker then claimed, without proof, that God told him that “you are in Revelation, Chapter 6″:
This is what He told me. He said, “Donald Trump is a respite in this troubled times and I sent him in grace to give you time to prepare for what’s coming on earth.”
Bakker also claimed, without proof, that “the Antichrist spirit” has been let loose on America:
God has given us a man who is not afraid to fight. We have a president people think is crazy. They call him crazy, but he’s making peace treaties, he’s doing all the things to try to solve the world’s problems and God has put him on earth—God spoke to me the other night, He said, “I put Donald Trump on earth to give you time, the church, to get ready.”
