Trump Is God's Answer to Christians' Prayers for 'Reprieve' From LGBT Movement, Says Michele Bachmann

God intervened in American politics and paved the way for President Donald Trump's election victory last year after seeing how the transgender community was perverting the nation.

The view was shared by former congresswoman and Trump evangelical adviser Michele Bachmann in an April 1 interview on the conservative radio program, "Understanding the Times with Jan Markell."

Bachmann implied that Trump's victory was God's retribution for the LGBT movement's strides toward equality, Right Wing Watch reported.

"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," the outspoken Republican said in the interview.

She lambasted former president Barack Obama for issuing "a sheet of paper" that says "every single public school in the country would have to have the girls' bathrooms open to the boys and the boys' bathrooms open to the girls."

Bachmann said what Obama was trying to say then was "when we look at our body in a shower, our body isn't reality anymore, so we actually get to choose if we're a boy, if we're a girl."

She said Trump was God's answer to the prayers of Christians to grant them a "reprieve" from the LGBT community's growing influence, which they believe is undermining Christian beliefs in America.

In February, the Trump administration cancelled Obama-era protections for transgender students in public schools that allowed them to use bathrooms and facilities corresponding with their gender identity, CNN reported.

Days earlier, in the same radio program, Bachmann linked Trump's political opponents with the rise of the Antichrist, according to Right Wing Watch.

She said Trump's critics, much like the people who built the Tower of Babel, are rebelling against God to bring about "the creation of a manmade, one-world system. And scripture tells us that in the End Times, that is what Antichrist will be, he will be a part of a one-world system."

Bachmann has long been known for her candid views against the left. In 2015, she predicted that Obama's support of same-sex marriage and his policies on Iran's nuclear program would bring about "the rapture," the Huffington Post recalled.
