Commentary: The Story of Paula White and the nearly three dozen evangelicals advising Donald Trump, our nations President is a fascinating story written in a Washington Post piece by Julia Duin.  You may agree or disagree with Paula White’s story, her theology, but her Evangelical Christian influence on Donald Trump is without question.  The article is lengthy and highlights Paula Whites’ own story of ups and downs as a Pastor and now in her third marriage, and her personal relationship with the President as His leading spiritual advisor. Julia Duin is a writer based near Seattle. Her latest book, which grew out of an article for The Washington Post magazine, is “In the House of the Serpent Handler: A Story of Faith and Fleeting Fame in the Age of Social Media.”

It was an early afternoon in late July, and Paula White was holding court before an audience of about 25 Southern Baptist ministers in an ornate diplomatic reception room in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. The televangelist was recounting one of her favorite stories — about when Donald Trump reached out to her in 2011 for guidance on a possible White House run. “Would you bring some people around me to pray?” she said he asked her. “I really want to hear from God.” White recalled that she and another pastor gathered about 30 ministers from different evangelical Christian traditions at Trump Tower in Manhattan. After the prayer session, when Trump asked her what she thought, she responded: “I don’t feel it’s the right timing.”

He listened, she continued, and the two talked and prayed about the matter over the next four years. When White again gathered religious leaders at Trump Tower in September 2015, she backed the decision he’d already made to run. Videos on YouTube of that event show her standing on his right, head down, laying hands on him as she prayed.
