While former President Barack Obama was known by many on the progressive left as “the chosen one,” an increasing number of Christians now see the current commander-in-chief, Donald Trump, as anointed by God to lead the country.

In May, two professors who study religion and politics published the findings of a survey, showing that 49.5% of white Protestant Christians believe Trump was selected by God to be president.
