"I think God calls all of us to fill different roles at different times and I think that He wanted Donald Trump to become president, and that's why he's there," Sanders told David Brody and Jennifer Wishon of the Christian Broadcasting Network.
"I think he has done a tremendous job in supporting a lot of the things that people of faith really care about," Sanders added, calling President Trump “the most conservative president that we've ever had.”
"You look at the judicial nominations alone, I think that will be one of the greatest legacies that the president has after his eight years in office is how he has completely remade the judiciary and started to stop this activist court that we've started to see over the last eight years. There's a reason evangelicals are sticking with the president, and that's because he's delivered on all the things he said he would do."
When asked about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi calling Trump's proposed wall along the U.S. southern border "immoral," Sanders told CBN it’s “very hard at this point to even take a lecture from Democrats on what is moral and what isn't.”
