Apopka preacher Paula White says defying Trump is 'fighting against hand of God' - 2017-08-30
Apopka preacher Paula White, who gave Tuesday's invocation in front of the Orange County board of commissioners meeting, recently appeared on a televangelist program where she said defying President Donald Trump was akin to "fighting against the hand of God."
Without specifying how big that hand might be, White said God was responsible for Trump's presidency on a television show hosted by Jim Bakker, a disgraced televangelist convicted of fraud who has been telling people that Christians will start a civil war if Trump is impeached.
"He's not a polished politician," White told Bakker. "In other words, he's authentically – whether people like him or not – has been raised up by God because God says that He raises up and places all people in places of authority. It is God that raises up a king, it is God that sets one down and so when you fight against the plan of God, you're fighting against the hand of God."
