Controversial televangelist Jim Bakker stated that he predicted the election of Donald Trump back in 2007, referring to it as a “a great wounding” that would happen to “the left.”

On an episode of “The Jim Bakker Show” that aired last Thursday, Bakker talked about how on New Year’s Day 2007 he predicted that “the Lord showed me there is going to be a great wounding on the left.”

Regarding those comments from 2007, Bakker said that while it took him some time to figure out what that “wounding” was, he has since concluded that it was “the election of Donald Trump.”

“Why did God tell me that? Why would He have me to blurt that out on television? It was because … what’s going on right now. If you want to understand what’s happening in America, this wounding is happening in America because of the anger on the left,” said Bakker.

“He said there will be a great wounding on the left. And they’re so upset because their candidate did not win. They guaranteed their candidate would win. But she did not. And they’re mad.”

Bakker went on to claim that some liberals who supported Hillary Clinton in 2016 “will kill Donald Trump if they can,” quoting MorningStar Ministries founder Rick Joyner in saying “civil war is coming to America.”

Hemant Mehta of the popular Friendly Atheist blog critiqued Bakker’s claim, pointing out in a blog post last Friday that soon after his prediction, Barack Obama was elected president and served for two terms.
