Votes from above: God wanted Trump as president, claims Sarah Huckabee Sanders

The White House press secretary made the remarks to a US christian network and said Trump had done much for 'people of faith'.

President Donald Trump has plenty of detractors, but for spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders, he has support from above.

"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," Sanders says in an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network.

"That's why he's there and I think he has done a tremendous job in supporting a lot of the things that people of faith really care about," Sanders said. 

CBN journalist David Brody tweeted Sanders' claim after the interview was taped.

Trump, a Republican, has strong backing from the politically influential US evangelical movement, which early on decided to overlook multiple lurid reports regarding his private life.
