The Reason Trump is “Different?” He’s a Christian, Says the Person Who Brought Him to Christ

In an interview with the Washington Times last Thursday, Paula White, host of the television show Paula White Today and senior pastor of the evangelical megachurch New Destiny Christian Center in Apopka, Florida, said that “a lot of evangelicals have grown accustomed to feeling used by the political process. Every politician appeals to us, every one wants to hear us out during the campaign, but then things change once they get into office.” Mr. Trump, she said, is “just different.”

And just why is that? Because White brought Trump to Christ a few years after he cold-called her after watching one of her shows. The relationship developed to the point where he would often invite her to Atlantic City for private Bible studies. After announcing his candidacy, he asked her to join his Evangelical Advisory Board. When he was inaugurated, White provided the invocation prayer. Since then, White has served as one of the president’s closest advisors and has joined in Oval Office prayer meetings with him.
