White House Brings Trump Spiritual Adviser Paula White Onto Staff

‘When I walk on White House grounds, God walks on White House grounds.’ — Meet Paula White, spiritual adviser to the president and the latest addition to the White House staff

Posted by NowThis Politics on Monday, November 4, 2019

This is the same person who was once quoted as saying:

“Wherever I go, God rules. When I walk on White House grounds, God walks on White House grounds. When I walked in The River, God walked in The River. When I go in to the dry cleaners, that dry cleaning place becomes holy. I have every right and authority to declare the White House as holy ground because I was standing there and where I stand is holy.”

Her formal role now ensures that evangelicals — nearly three-quarters of who still approve of Donald Trump’s actions as President according to NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll  — will stand by him as he fights an impeachment probe, and a second term bid in 2020.

The New York Times calls the 53-year-old Paula White “a quintessentially Trump figure: a television preacher, married three times, who lives in a mansion [and believes] that God wants followers to find wealth and health — commonly called the prosperity gospel.”

Funnily enough, White’s compatriots in religious circles consider her beliefs of interpreting the gospel to be about wealth, “controversial.”

In an Axios on HBO interview, Joshua Harris, a former evangelical pastor, was quoted as saying that the movement’s identification with President Donald Trump had been “incredibly damaging to the Gospel. And to the church.”

But that’s not all. Many seem to also believe, you can’t be a Christian and vote for Donald Trump.

According to a report in the Chicago Sun Times, many Christians echo the sentiments of Rev. Jim Wallis:

“Racial bigotry is a deal breaker for the Gospel. White nationalism, which Donald Trump embraces and champions, isn’t just racist — it’s anti-Christ. Dehumanizing immigrants isn’t just racist — it’s anti-Christ. Demeaning women isn’t just sexist — it’s anti-Christ. At some point, Christians have to ask themselves: Are the teachings of Christ going to be followed or not?”
