Secretary of State Mike Pompeo believes President Trump may have been sent by God to rescue the Jewish people from Iran, according to an interview he gave to the Christian Broadcasting Network. In an interview aired after Pompeo visited the Western Wall in Jerusalem with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday, he was asked whether Trump could be just like the biblical figure Esther, who is said to have saved the Jews with help from God. “As a Christian, I certainly believe that’s possible,” he responded. He went on to praise the Trump administration for ensuring that “this Jewish state remains.” “I am confident the Lord is at work here,” he said. Pompeo’s remarks came after Trump announced Washington’s decision to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights, territory that was seized from Syria in 1967.
