In an exclusive interview with The Brody File, GOP vice presidential nominee Mike Pence says he believes Donald Trump's rise is all part of God's larger plan of divine providence for America.
"I believe in providence for the course of this nation but I think what animates Donald Trump is faith in God and faith in the American people," Pence tells The Brody File. "I think what we are seeing across this country is really a movement of the American people who are tired of being told this is as good as it gets."
Pence also tells us that our country needs a spiritual jolt. It's an important time for us to pray and I believe what has always been true and is still true today that if his people who are called by his name will humble themselves and pray that he'll again hear from heaven and he'll heal our land."
Pence is quoting a vey popular biblical passage, 2 Chronicles 7:14.
Our Brody File interview with Gov. Pence was done Thursday afternoon in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. A complete story airs nationwide on The 700 Club Friday on Freeform (formerly the ABC Family Channel) at 10 a.m. ET and 11 p.m. ET.
Look, Pence is the real deal when it comes to being a Christian conservative. Our crew was on the ground in Pennsylvania and we talked to plenty of undecided voters who say Pence's presence on the ticket helps them get to a more comfortable place.
After his debate performance this past Tuesday, it's no surprise. Trump's decision to pick Pence is a brilliant move. In one fell swoop, Pence helps with the GOP establishment crowd, movement conservatives and conservative Christians. That's the political trinity.
On a separate but related note, if this, "vice presidential thing" doesn't work out, he could always be the national spokesman for chamomile tea. The man is calm as they come, in stark contrast to the "Donald Trump 5-Hour Energy Drink." Maybe they should call him "Mike Pensive."
