Amid her meeting with a traditionalist Christian radio program called “Understanding the Times” throughout the end of the week, Bachmann stated, “We could go on what the president has done with standing for righteousness in so many areas.”
“One being Barack Obama had demanded and commanded that our military services had to literally go out and recruit people who are transgender to come into the military,” she said. “Well, it costs about a quarter of a million dollars to do sex reassignment surgery.”
“Why would you recruit people who would come in and have sex reassignment surgery and be on the sidelines? It made no sense, so Donald Trump got rid of that mandate and that requirement,” she proceeded.
Bachmann was alluding to the past boycott the Obama organization lifted on transgender administration in 2016. The Trump organization has since revealed a strategy banning most transgender individuals from serving in the military which started on Friday.
“He has stood up where most Republicans wouldn’t dare to stand up,” Bachmann proceeded to state of Trump. “Donald Trump has had the courage in the fortitude, and I will say to your listeners in my lifetime I have never seen a more biblical president than I have seen in Donald Trump.”
“He has so impressed me with what he’s done, and we haven’t even talked about Israel,” Bachmann said before including that she considers Trump to be “exceedingly scriptural.”
“And I would say to your listeners we will in all likelihood never see a more godly, biblical president again in our lifetimes so we need to be not only praying for him; we need to support him, in my opinion,” she included.
Bachmann has filled in as an individual from Trump’s evangelical advisory board before. She likewise recently hailed Trump’s presidential triumph in 2016 as “proof positive of what the Lord did.”
