Alabama GOP Senator: Trump's Presidency Is A 'Biblical Miracle' .
Alabama GOP senator Luther Strange recently made a bold claim about Donald Trump.
While appearing at a forum for candidates in the special election for the U.S. Senate in Montgomery, Alabama, Strange said:
“President Trump is the greatest thing that’s happened to this country. I consider it a Biblical miracle that he’s there.”
The Washington Post has more on the GOP senator:
Strange is a traditional Alabama conservative.
Anti-Obamacare? Check. Anti-regulations from the Environmental Protection Agency? Check. Anti-federal-government regulations, period? Check. Pro-coal industry and pro-gun rights? Check and check.
As attorney general, Strange seized nearly every opportunity to join lawsuits against the Obama administration — from federal guidance over opening up bathrooms to transgender students, to stopping refugee resettlement. He also fought politically charged battles at home aimed at broadening gun rights and limiting gambling on Native American reservations.
All of this has the convenient effect of helping Strange position himself for a run for higher office, insiders say. “He took a lot of stances that would make him popular with primary voters,” said Alabama GOP consultant Brent Buchanan.
