Televangelist Pat Robertson warned viewers on "The 700 Club" on Feb. 27 that some witches were trying to put a curse on President Donald Trump (video below).
Robertson was answering a viewer's letter about how his father is in a satanic cult, notes Right Wing Watch. The viewer wanted to know if the cult's curses that were placed on him and his son could hurt them if they are Christians.
Robertson advised sending the curses back to the cult, and then dropped his bombshell: "I read that a bunch of witches have gotten together to put a curse on Trump, and I think the Christians need to be praying for him to defend him, and at the same time send those curses back where they came from."
Moments later, Robertson's co-host Wendy Griffith told him that the curse on Trump by witches happened on Feb. 24: "I know that all the believers that were on Facebook were canceling out those 'curses' from the witches and just pleading the blood of Jesus. There were probably millions of Christians praying for him."
Witches across the U.S. were casting a spell to stop Trump from doing any harm, reports BBC News.
A Facebook page was created by the witches, and uses the hashtags #BindTrump and #MagicResistance.
Michael Hughes posted the spell on ExtraNewsfeed: "I call upon you. To bind Donald J. Trump. So that his malignant works may fail utterly. That he may do no harm. To any human soul. Nor any tree. Animal. Rock. Stream. Or Sea."
Hughes also explained the spell:
In other words, this is not the equivalent of magically punching a Nazi; rather, it is ripping the bullhorn from his hands, smashing his phone so he can’t tweet, tying him up, and throwing him in a dark basement where he can’t hurt anyone.
MaryPat Azevedo, a participant in Arizona, told BBC News: "A true witch would never cast a spell on anyone without their permission. This prayer is for wellbeing and peace for all beings."
Azevedo added that she wants to see "physical, emotional, and spiritual changes in Donald Trump and American politics."
In response, the Christian Nationalist Alliance called on Christians to do a counter-prayer against this spell that would stop Trump from hurting people:
This is a declaration of spiritual war and it requires a response. As such the Christian Nationalist Alliance is announcing a Day of Prayer on each of these days. We beseech all Christian soldiers to answer this call to action by reading from Psalm 23.
We ask you to join us in praying for the strength of our nation, our elected representatives and for the souls of the lost who would take up Satanic arms against us.
