Trump Stopped Cold When A Black Supporter Asked To Pray For Him — What She Did Next Floored The Room

 

VIRGINIA KRUTA ASSOCIATE EDITOR

 

As young black leaders gathered Friday in the White House for the Young Black Leadership Summit, one voice split the room asking for a moment to pray for President Donald Trump.

Turning Point USA’s Benny Johnson shared video of what happened when the president brought the young woman to the podium. Mahalet, once an abandoned, impoverished orphan from Ethiopia, earned smiles and cheers from the president and the gathered crowd. (RELATED: President Trump To Black Americans: ‘You Built This Nation’)

“I’m not really good with prayers or anything like that but I just want to say thank you, Mr. President, and I know we have a political warfare right now, but I strongly believe that it is a spiritual one as well,” Mahalet said to cheers from the crowd.

“And I want to make sure that I mean, I know that Americans are gonna wake up and we’re gonna get back to looking to God instead of social media and we’re gonna look back to Jesus because Jesus saves and this country was founded upon the Constitution, was built on Godly principles and we’re gonna fight for that,” she said. “And I just want to encourage you guys to pray every day for this nation.”

“Dear God, I’m not really good at this,” Mahalet laughed. “But I just want to say thank you so much for giving us this opportunity to be in the White House. Thank you for giving us a great leader like Trump, Mr. Donald Trump, and I would like to thank you for waking up our nation.”

She continued, asking God for protection both for the nation and for the president, adding, “God, I believe that you gave him to us and I believe that he’s gonna accomplish so much more. I know you have more for us.”

“Jesus I ask you to protect us and walk with us and in Jesus’ name the enemy tries to attack us every single day,” Mahalet concluded. “He tries to discourage us but he has no room.  He has no room, no more, and that’s all I have to say.”

    The president is not a perfect person and none of us are. But he has welcomed god back to this nation.
    We all need prayer no matter what we’ve done wrong that’s what is so great about god. All sins are gone and we will sin again and prayer is the only answer.
    America is blessed to have a god fearing man working for this nation

    Only God can save this Nation. We need to remember how Israel Lost their land to Assyria and taken captive when God had enough of His people turning away from Him and worshipping other gods. We need to look to God to lead us when we cast our vote and we know that Pres. Trump is pro Christianity.

    Prayer is always appropriate. I thank God that this young lady prayed. Our country is in turmoil and only God can fix it. No matter whether you support the President or not, pray for him and for all of our leaders in Jesus Name! God and God alone can fix this mess our country is in.

    It sickens me to hear the Trump haters! Do they even know what he has accomplished and so,so many things are BETTER! If I were him, I would have walked away back to his exclusive wealthy family. Hate mongers are hating just to be hating….tell me why you hate him!

      Bruce, People like you are precisely why we need to bring God back into the foundation of our country. We’ve allowed the young and misguided to lead us lower and lower on the intelligence and moral scales. Also, certain higher authorities and institutions are grossly complicit in facilitating this sad decline. When will we come to our senses and awaken our courage to take a stand against these hate driven groups? It’s a moral imperative to do so.

        L. Mama, I know you think you are the solution, but in truth, you are part of the problem. You have obviously fallen prey to those who, being uninformed, continue to torment hate. Are you unaware of the GOOD records our president has broken in furthering true help for the people? Lower unemployment in 50 years, higher employment for Black Americans and Hispanic Americans ever, a thriving economy, trying to enforce our immigration laws which Clinton and Obama originally campaigned FOR. (You Tube Clinton’s 1995 State of the Union speech. Also, see the speech where Obama said the exact same things. The iconic picture of illegal children in a cage on the border were found out to have been taken during OBAMA’S presidency, NOT Trump’s. There is so much more good he has done, also, in taking a stand against the entrenched swamp, too, and in negotiating much better trade deals for the U.S. Please think and do research for yourself and stop living off the sound bite lies of you know which party and TV stations, starting with CNN.

    According to the word of God, we as Christians are required to pray for our leaders everyday. I so glad the this young lady Mahalet was emboldened to pray for this President and our country. It seems that lately he sure needs it. We should all know that God is in control, whether we know it or not and that. What is meant to happen will happen.

    Not that we are to agree with wrong doing of any kind, but let him that is without sin cast the first stone, so to speak. If the people of the country would get on their knees and pray for God love and mercy to return to this country, then and only then will we ever see the change this country needs. I truly could say so much more, but it would mean I am preaching.
