Trump Wanted to Build a Mega Church with Patstor Paula White. Sure, Why Not Get In on the Grift?

2 min read


Speaking with the Washington Examiner Friday, White said Trump initiated plans to build a grandiose “glass cathedral” in 2006, even hiring on an architect to pursue the project. White ultimately said the timing wasn’t right on her end and the project fell through, but she recalled her and Trump’s longtime religious relationship in a series of interviews this week promoting her latest book.

“It was part of a dream,” she told the Washington Examiner. “He said, ‘Let’s build a crystal cathedral for God,” echoing that of the Roman Catholic Christ Cathedral in Garden Grove, California. “He wanted to build a house of God. He said, ‘Let’s do this, let’s build this before we’re too old.'”

White, a television preacher based in Florida, said Trump asked for her prayers to “intensify” in 2014, when he made it clear to her he was going to run for president…

…”He is a Christian,” White said of Trump in her interview with the Examiner, noting he doesn’t quote scripture publicly like former President Bill Clinton “He doesn’t know ‘Christian-ese,’ most people don’t.”

Yes, yes, Paula, he follows all those good Christian precepts like extortion and threats, alms for the rich, hostility towards the persecuted, locking children in cages and dropping trou for porn stars.

What a fine church it would have been!

For a while…
