MyPillow founder Mike Lindell claimed on Thursday that President Donald Trump is the “greatest president in history” because he was “chosen by God.”
Lindell, a conservative Christian, made the assertion at Thursday’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), where he told the audience that Jesus had saved him from alcoholism and his crack addiction.
“I woke up from years of addiction, and I was oblivious as to what was going on in our country,” he explained. “What I saw before me were friends unemployed, terrible political correctness, people saying happy holidays instead of ‘Merry Christmas’, and people trying to take God out of everything, and not even acknowledging Jesus Christ.”
Lindell then called Trump’s entry into the 2016 presidential race “a divine and miraculous moment.”
“Donald Trump invited me to the meet him at Trump Tower in New York City,” Lindell said. “I walked into his office with high hopes on August 15th, 2016. I walked out of that office after meeting with him and I knew God had chosen him for such a time as this.”

“God answered our prayers, our millions of prayers and gave us grace, and a miracle happened on November 8th, 2016. We were given a second chance and time granted to get our country back on track with our conservative values and getting people saved in Jesus name,” he added.
“As I stand before you today, I see the greatest president in history,” Lindell said of President Trump. “Of course he is. He was chosen by God.”
