Pastor Robert Jeffress has been an open Trump supporter in recent years. He has campaigned for the President and has offered his support for his campaign and administration. Now, he's helping him out yet again and advocating for the wall.
"An evangelical preacher who is a prominent supporter of President Donald Trump has said that if a wall is good enough for heaven, then it is good enough for the U.S. southern border," reported Newsweek.
Jeffress appeared on Fox News this week and spoke about the issues at the southern border. He then went on to discuss how building a wall between the U.S. and Mexico actually has biblical connections.
“Instead of vilifying and demonizing President Trump, we ought to thank God every day we have a president like Donald Trump who takes his oath of office seriously and is willing to do whatever it takes to keep this country safe," he said.
In an apparent reference to the Book of Revelation, he said: “The Bible says even Heaven itself is going to have a wall around it. Not everybody is going to be allowed in."
The comment made the rounds on social media. Many people commented about Jeffress comparing the border wall to the walls of Heaven.
