Secretary of State compares Trump to Esther

‘It’s possible God sent him to save Israel’

One of America’s most senior politicians has claimed it is possible Donald Trump was sent by God to save Israel from rival nations.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was responding to a question from the Christian Broadcasting Network on whether the US President was like a modern day Esther from the Bible.

Speaking on the Purim holiday in which Jews celebrate the biblical rescue of the Jewish people by Queen Esther from the Persians, Pompeo said: “As a Christian, I certainly believe that’s possible,.

“It was remarkable…the work that our administration’s done to make sure that this democracy in the Middle East, that this Jewish state remains.

“I am confident that the Lord is at work here.”
