Spiritual Advisor Paula White Hails Trump’s Victory In ‘War On Christmas’

    Paula White, a celebrity televangelist and spiritual advisor to President Trump, praised the administration for putting “Christ back in Christmas” and “prayer back into the White House” this year.

    “Trump just hasn’t put Christ back in Christmas, but he’s also put prayer back into the White House,” White said in a Monday interview on Fox News.

    “We don’t have to be afraid of the political correct police anymore. What makes America great is that we were founded on a Judeo-Christian nation,” she said. “He understands it.”

    During his campaign ad into his presidency, Trump repeatedly invoked the so-called War on Christmas — a decades-old trope that stokes fears that there is an ongoing cultural assault on Christianity. This year, the president declared a victory of sorts.

    White leads a megachurch in Florida and has been associated with teaching what is known as the Prosperity Gospel. She is the chair of Trump’s evangelical advisory board, has led “laying hands” prayer sessions in the Oval Office and has a penchant for some Jewish garb and ritual.
