Christian Ministry Rejoices Over Trump 'Landslide' Win (Video)

The Family Policy Alliance, the political arm of the Christian-based Focus on the Family, rejoiced over Republican victories, including President-elect Donald Trump's win on Nov. 9 (video below).

Family Policy Alliance president Paul Weber thanked the "friends and supporters of this ministry" for turning out the vote.

Weber said that Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida retained his seat "by the grace of God," as did other Republican Senate seats "all over the nation."

As a matter of record, Republicans lost two seats in the Senate, and Democrats picked up two seats.

"We retained the Senate, the House and obviously the presidency," Weber added. "And we are rejoicing today because of that."

Weber expressed concern about Republican Gov. Pat McCrory of North Carolina, who has been trailing Democrat Roy Cooper in a tight race.

"There may even be some alleged illegalities going on in North Carolina that need to be unraveled," Weber asserted.

Weber went on to praise McCrory for opposing transgender rights in North Carolina.

He said the election repudiated the "leftist agenda" of the (non-existent) Clinton administration and the Obama administration (October approval rating of 55%).

Weber added that the election results were a "landslide" against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

David Wasserman, an editor at the Cook Political Report, which has been tracking the popular vote, told The Atlantic: "We probably have about 7 million votes left to count. A majority of them are on the coasts, in New York, California, and Washington. She should be able to win those votes, probably 2-1."

David Leip, who runs the website The Atlas of U.S. Presidential Elections, said that Clinton’s total vote number should likely match or be more than President Barack Obama's 66 million votes in 2012.

Weber announced this was the first time that Republicans have held the Senate, House and White House since 1928.

Republicans controlled all three branches of government from 2003 to 2007.

Weber attacked Clinton for saying “freedom of worship” in her concession speech, and insisted there is no such thing as freedom of worship, but rather freedom of religion, which Weber defined as living out religious beliefs and moral convictions in the public square.

Weber asserted that the “left” created "freedom of worship," a "new term" that somehow restricted people to worshipping God within the fours walls of a church.

The "freedom of worship" attack against Clinton goes as far back as 2010, but Americans United noted other presidents have said the same thing:

Remember President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s famous 1941 "Four Freedoms" speech? The second was "freedom of every person to worship God in his own way – everywhere in the world."

President Ronald W. Reagan, a hero to the Religious Right, used the term too. Speaking at the Republican National Convention in 1988, Reagan waxed eloquent about the things that make America special, singling out "freedom of worship, freedom of hope and opportunity, and the pursuit of happiness."

Weber said that Trump promised to put conservatives on the U.S. Supreme Court.

Democrats can filibuster Trump‘s nominations for the high court until midterm elections in 2018 because Republicans don’t have the 60 votes needed to overcome a filibuster.

Weber added that the "Clinton administration is done and gone."
