PALM SPRINGS, Fl. – Draped in an elaborate white satin robe reminiscent of ancient Greece, former president Donald J. Trump’s eldest son, Don Jr., now leads one of the largest congregations in the South – second only to Joel Osteen.
“In a vision, my father came to me and said, ‘Don, save our children, so that they might seek salvation,” Donald Trump, Jr. told Newsmax on Saturday, as a 24-karat gold statue of the former president towered over him – arms outstretched “in the sign of the cross” behind an altar loosely resembling that of a Cathoic church.
Don, Jr., who played a pivotal role in both of his father’s presidential campaigns, is seeking to pave a path to salvation for the 45th president’s opponents and supporters alike.
At a recent event lasting nearly four hours, more than a hundred “self-professed liberals and Bidenites” came forward to receive salvation from Don, Jr., who proclamed, “Friend, your sins are forgiven.” Dozens wept uncccontrollably and more than a few parishoners had to be carted away on stretchers.
Nancy Callahan of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, who drove overnight to hear Don, Jr’s sermon, told Fox News’s Tucker Carlson that she was moved to tears by the experience.
“Don, Jr. touched the head of a liberal drone, and, by the power invested in him by the Almighty 45th President of the United States,” Callahan explained, making the sign of the cross, “he drove the sin from that man and sent him on a path to salvation and enlightenment.” Through tears of joy, Callahan later added that “it was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.”
For his part, Donald Trump, Jr. views himself as a modern-day prophet, akin to Jesus Christ. “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to my Father, the 45th president of the United States, except through me,” he told a packed audience of more than five thousand. “For I have come down [from New York City], not to do my own will, but to do the will of Him, your president, Donald J. Trump, who sent me.”
