Trump's Evangelic Adviser: God Sent Trump To 'Take Out' Kim Jong

Southern Baptist pastor Robert Jeffress, who has close ties to the president, believes Trump has the moral authority to destroy Kim Jong-un.

The country's official KCNA news agency issued the threat one day after declaring North Korea would strike the US with "thousands-fold" revenge in retaliation for the sanctions imposed by the United Nations on Friday.

MSNBC analyst Evelyn Farkas said "President Trump sounds more like a North Korean Leader, unfortunately, than an American leader" on Nicole Wallace's show in response to Trump's alarming words for Pyongyang on Tuesday.

On Monday, it was revealed that North Korea had developed a warhead small enough to be affixed to a missile and launched toward the United States.

The statement came on the same day that Trump warned North Korea if it continued to threaten the United States, there would be "fire and fury".

Citing the Book of Romans as his source of his claims, Jeffress stated that Scripture allows Trump to do "whatever (is) necessary - including war - to stop evil", according to the Huffington Post. In fact, in a statement Tuesday to the Christian Broadcast Network, Jeffress said that "God has given Trump authority to take out Kim Jong Un".

Buyer Beware! Fake Solar Eclipse Glasses Hit The Market

The Texas pastor added that he's "heartened" to see that Trump will not tolerate North Korea's threats against the USA, a policy that he said is "contrary to what we've seen with past administration who have taken, at best, a sheepish stance toward dictators and oppressors".

"Thank God for a President who is serious about protecting our country".

"That gives the government to the authority to do whatever, whether it's assassination, capital punishment or evil punishment to quell the actions of evildoers like Kim Jong Un", Jeffress said.

Jeffress was a member of Trump's evangelical advisory committee during the 2016 presidential election and since has attended several meetings of prominent evangelicals at the White House. "We're electing a president".

Jeffress also praised Trump for his "very measured" and "thoughtful" approach to the presidency since taking office on January 20.

Trump, who was raised as a Presbyterian, has gone out of his way to embrace evangelicals.
