“If you look at the disciples…they were all Donald Trump” says Televangelist Rick Joyner

Rick Joyner, the well-known televangelist and climate change denier, has compared Donald Trump to the disciples of Jesus. He did so in his program, the aptly named Prophetic Perspectives on Current Events. He also heads MorningStar, a Christian publishing organization.

Joyner said that President-elect Trump is similar to Jesus Christ's disciples. He is not only one of them, but all of them. He claims, “If you look at the disciples that Jesus chose, they were all Donald Trump. Every one of them were Donald Trumps.” According to an online clip by Right Wing Watch, he claimed that although Trump has no respect for politicians, he fully respects the clergy. He also said that the president-elect is completely in fear of the Lord.

Joyner stressed that he and Trump interacted with each other all through the campaign. In his program, he told that Trump is vastly different from what the popular media has portrayed him to be. The televangelist said that he found the real estate billionaire turned politician to be a kind and gentle New Yorker, but at the same time as “tough as nails.” He even said that Trump cried after they had a discussion about ejecting illegal aliens from the United States. The televangelist said that the president-elect was fully aware of how this action will destroy families. He described the tough businessman turned politician to have tears in his eyes, and ready to cry out.

It must be mentioned here that Trump has repeatedly stressed during his election campaign the need to deport undocumented immigrants. He also insisted on constructing a border wall between the United States and Mexico. These were the main planks of his campaign.

Joyner described Trump as an honest person. He even went further on to say that Donald Trump is one of the most honest persons he has even interacted with during his lifetime. Again, it is to be noted that Trump gained notoriety for backtracking on promises made and consistently lying all through the presidential campaign.

Joyner, who is a known climate change denier has also dismissed global warming and described the event as a plot hatched by the communists. The televangelist has also urged the United States military to topple the federal government.
