White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders stated on CBN News that she believes God wanted Donald Trump to become President of the United States. She is a woman of deep Christian faith and I have no doubt she believes that. I do as well. Personally, I don’t think there is anything that happens in life that God does not have a hand in.
“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,” Sanders told CBN News Chief Political Analyst David Brody and Senior Washington Correspondent Jennifer Wishon in her West Wing office. “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,” Sanders stated. Again, she is correct.
Put aside for a moment whether you like President Trump or not… whether you approve of what he is doing or not. Honestly ask yourself if this is true. In my viewpoint, it certainly is.
The interview was about 20 minutes long. In it, Sanders discussed issues of immigration, anti-Semitism, the morality of a border wall, persecuted Christians in Syria, the White House press briefings, the state of the Democratic Party, her faith and many other topics.
Sanders had some very harsh comments for Democratic leaders regarding the anti-Zionist philosophy that appears to have gained a foothold in the party. She does not tolerate anti-Semitic views in the House of Representatives or anywhere else for that matter.
“I think it is outrageous that the leadership of Democrats haven’t called on these people to either take their comments back. They haven’t condemned them,” Sanders said. “Anytime somebody who’s not even associated with the President says something, the first thing is will you condemn. Will you say that this is terrible?” she asked. “Where’s the leadership on the Democrats’ side to call this out? It is unbelievable that this is going totally unchecked, totally off the radar of most of the mainstream media.”
Sanders also went after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. She bluntly stated that Pelosi’s view on the border wall is ridiculous and that one day she will regret calling the wall ‘immoral’. “Honestly, it’s very hard at this point to even take a lecture from Democrats on what is moral and what isn’t,” Sanders told CBN News. “People who are willing to allow legislation to pass supporting late-term abortion. The idea that they would take out “So help me God,” in the platform that House Democrats have raised this week. But the idea that protecting the people of your country, which is the fundamental duty of being President of the United States would in some way be immoral is a ridiculous charge and something that I think probably, I would think Speaker Pelosi may even regret making that comment because she’s seen how ridiculous that sounds and how the evidence is so contrary to that comment.”
Sanders also laid down the gauntlet on abortion and messing with the phrase “so help me God.” It was a wide-ranging interview and she did not hold back.
And rounding out the interview, Sanders addressed more on foreign policy, religion, the border and immigration issues, along with the media. From CBN:
“Meanwhile, the battle over immigration and border wall funding continues. A group of bi-partisan senators and house members met Wednesday to negotiate a deal that may or may not give President Trump some money for the wall. Will the White House take an active role during negotiations?
“No matter what the topic is, he’s a natural born leader, and so something that is this big of a priority for him, you can expect him to continue to lead on the effort,” Sanders said. “Now we’re counting on members of Congress to come together and work out a deal that actually addresses those problems.”
“On foreign policy, Sanders addressed concerns, especially by evangelicals, that eventually pulling U.S. troops out of Syria will put persecuted Christians, Kurds and other ethnic minorities at risk.
“The President’s made clear that we support Christians, that we support the Kurds,” Sanders told CBN News. “He’s made that clear to Turkey, he’s made that clear publicly on a number of fronts, and just one of the reasons that the President has been tough on Iran is to make sure that people don’t feel threatened. We’ve supported the safe zones that are going to be very important, and the idea that the President is just stepping away and ignoring any potential problem doesn’t understand the fundamental decision that he’s made.”
“Despite concerns by evangelicals over U.S. policy in Syria, evangelicals have been more than satisfied with President Trump during his first two years in office.
“I would argue he’s the most conservative president that we’ve ever had,” Sanders explained. “You look at the judicial nominations alone I think that will be one of the greatest legacies that the president has after his 8 years in office is how he has completely remade the judiciary and started to stop this activist court that we’ve started to see over the last 8 years. There’s a reason evangelicals are sticking with the President, and that’s because he’s delivered on all the things he said he would do.”
“While evangelicals are pleased, the mainstream media press corps isn’t. They continue to press Sanders to hold daily press briefings despite a president who has been extremely accessible to the press.
“Whether or not there’s a daily press briefing, people in the administration, myself included, do regular interviews as I’m doing right now, after a lot of those interviews stop and take questions outside where anybody, any reporter is allowed to come and ask questions,” Sanders noted. “I think the White House, in general, is the most accessible when it comes to the media. You know, we had a briefing this week and they complained and complained and complained that we don’t have them, then we have one, and CNN and MSNBC didn’t even cover it. So, I think that the biggest thing is that they just want to complain and attack this administration and this President and they don’t want to cover all of the successes because that’s not good for the narrative that they’re trying to drive.”‘

Yuma Mayor Declares Emergency Over Migrant Crisis – City Overrun
This story originally appeared on WeBuildTheWall.news & was edited & republished with permission:
Sounds like a humanitarian and a national security crisis to me and I’m not the only one who sees it that way. Yuma Mayor Douglas Nicholls just declared an emergency in his city due to what he said was the strain caused by the incoming flow of migrants. The agents and authorities are simply being overwhelmed and swarmed by these invaders.
1,800 came over the border in one day… one day! Half of those detained on Tuesday crossing over from Mexico were found in the El Paso, Texas area, according to officials. Border patrol said more than 980 were apprehended before 5 am after crossing in three large groups. Yuma is having just as rough a time of it.
Mayor Nicholls went public with this on Facebook. He explained that he “proclaimed a local emergency” in the city “due to the migrant family releases overwhelming the local shelter system.” And it’s not just the sheer numbers of illegal immigrants… it’s the economic burden, the crime, the drugs, the danger to children and disease that is playing into this massive emergency state.
Nicholls is begging the government to step in and do something here. I don’t blame him in the least. They need help and fast. “I am calling upon the federal government to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Yuma, as our NGO’s are overcapacity and cannot sustain providing this aid,” the post said. Here’s a thought – ship all of them to sanctuary cities just as Trump proposed. Works for me. Better yet, don’t let them in at all unless they come here legally.
From Fox News:
“Nicholls, in a video, laid out his reasoning behind the declaration, saying that he ultimately feels that its what’s best for both Yuma and the incoming migrants.
“So it’s with a heavy heart that I declare that we’re at this point but it is something that I believe we need to do to make sure that our community is maintained and that the human rights of all the migrants are also maintained and that we have a path forward that respects both,” he said.
“The city of Yuma, Ariz., also tweeted about the proclamation, citing Nicholls, claiming that released migrants were coming into the area faster than they were leaving.
“The move by the local official comes after President Trump declared a national emergency at the nation’s southern border earlier this year.”
Mayor: Migrants being released into the community faster than they are departing, and shelters and the staff to run them are at max capacity. A state of emergency is declared.

“The transportation network is just insufficient to keep up with demand,” Nicholls said. “And the backlog of people staying at the shelter has created this capacity issue.” The media and the left are playing it up that the poor illegal immigrants don’t have money for bus fare to go to relatives while they await their court date. But the issue here is that they should not be here in the first place.
Now, the city is hoping for a FEMA response. In signing the declaration, Nicholls said he hopes to draw national attention to the plight of local communities struggling with a federal issue, adding that he’s talking to officials in other border cities and calling on them to issue similar emergency declarations. The mayor stated that he had spoken to Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, who signaled his support for the declaration.
Today I proclaimed a local emergency in Yuma, due to the migrant family releases overwhelming the local shelter system. I am calling upon the federal government to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Yuma, as our NGO’s are overcapacity and cannot sustain providing this aid. I signed the proclamation of emergency and soon after spoke with media at approximately 3:15 pm (MST). You can view via the video below:

“We will review any declaration once we receive it,” according to a statement Tuesday night from Patrick Ptak, a Ducey spokesman. “Ultimately, this humanitarian crisis is the result of Congress’ failure to act. It will only be solved by Congress actually doing something, and the governor has vocally urged Congress to quit playing politics and take action. If only they would.
“In the wake of their inaction, our office is working with local governments, non-profits and our federal partners to maximize available resources and ensure proper coordination between ICE officials and groups providing temporary services to migrants.”
I rolled into Mexico illegally, and came back into the USA… upon entering I got free healthcare, dental, welfare and cash in my pocket. It was that easy. @DonaldJTrumpJr @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @Education4Libs @IngrahamAngle @gehrig38 @SheriffClarke @NeilWMcCabe2 pic.twitter.com/8BHuqGbaZA

Nicholls fears hungry migrants roaming the streets. He should fear much worse than that. “This isn’t a natural disaster,” Nicholls said. “But it is a disaster.”
“… the local emergency exceeds control of the services, personnel, equipment and facilities of the City of Yuma and requires the combined efforts, cooperation, and resources of the Yuma community including local and non-profit agencies such as the Red Cross, Catholic Community Services, The Salvation Army, Yuma Community Food Bank, churches, the County of Yuma, the State of Arizona, and the United States of America,” the statement said.
It’s long past time for the wall to be built and We Build The Wall should start their project this month. Meanwhile, President Trump is still scratching and fighting for every mile of barrier put up. Put the blame of all this where it belongs… squarely on the left. #WeBuildTheWall
