American megachurch pastor and televangelist Paula White-Cain delivered a prayer service on Wednesday night for the re-election of President Donald Trump.
Paula White-Cain, who is the spiritual adviser to Trump, called on “angelic reinforcement” from the continents of Africa and South America.
“I hear a sound of victory, the Lord says it is done,” she said during the church service that was streamed live on Facebook.
“For angels have even been dispatched from Africa right now….In the name of Jesus from South America, they’re coming here.”
Her words triggered outrage in the United States.
“God is sending angels from a place Trump called a [expletive] to help him get re-elected?” Bishop Talbert Swan, a pastor, activist and NAACP Chapter President, wrote on Twitter. “‘I hear the sounds of victory…’ Consider a hearing aid.”
“She’ll be lucky if Stephen Miller doesn’t send those angels to ICE Detention Centers,” wrote Ana Navarro-Cárdenas, political strategist and commentator for CNN, Telemundo and The View, per USA Today.
