MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – In an interview on Wednesday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said she believes that God wanted Donald Trump to be president.
She told the Christian Broadcasting Network:
“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. 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.”
In reaction, Malacañang Press Secretary Salvador Panelo told The Adobo Chronicles:
”Well, God also wanted Rodrigo Duterte to be Philippine President, but for an entirely different reason: God wanted to piss off the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP).”
Just recently, the CBCP which has always been critical of Duterte, sought forgiveness for its lengthy silence over “disturbing issues,” such as the President’s bloody war on drugs and his attacks on the Church and its doctrines.
No reaction yet from CBCP on Panelo’s comment.
