Author of ‘God, Trump, and COVID-19’ Praises Advancement of President Donald J. Trump’s Pick for the High Court
ORLANDO, FLA.— Judge Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court by the full Senate tonight, capping a dramatic and swift victory for President Donald Trump this fall—and Stephen E. Strang, founder of Charisma Media and author of the compelling new book “God, Trump, and COVID-19,” applauds the historic action.
Says Strang, “I’m thrilled Judge Amy Coney Barrett has been confirmed to the Supreme Court. She has a brilliant legal mind and handled enormous adversarial questioning with grace.”
Strang adds, “I’m proud that such a strong believer has attained this high level. This should make all Spirit-filled Christians proud.”
Amy Coney Barrett, 48, now joins on the High Court two earlier selections by President Trump, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh—a remarkable achievement for any president. For the past three years, Barrett has served as a circuit judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Trump nominated her to that post as well.
Last week, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) told reporters about Barrett’s path to the Supreme Court, “We have the votes.” On Thursday, the Senate Judiciary Committee advanced her nomination with sole Republican support by a vote of 12-0 (Democrats chose to boycott the vote in protest). Then, on Sunday afternoon, the Senate voted 51-48 to limit debate to 30 hours on Barrett’s nomination—thus setting up the full Senate vote on her confirmation for tonight.
Senate Republicans hold a 53-47 majority in the upper chamber. They firmly believe that Barrett, as a Supreme Court justice, will forge a strong path as a conservative, religious woman who opposes abortion.
Strang, who has written authoritatively about President Trump for years, noted previously that Barrett—during her Senate hearings—“showed herself highly intelligent and poised in spite of partisan attacks.”
Strang praised Trump at the outset for his selection of Barrett for SCOTUS.“I believe that what the president said earlier was true: He ‘rightly acknowledged’ that he and other elected Republican officials had an ‘obligation, without delay,’ to fill the vacancy created on the High Court [by the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, on September 18, 2020]. Trump always displays his keen leadership instincts. This is yet another example of Trump’s employment of those God-given skills,” Strang added.
Strang also said, “As I’ve written about in ‘God, Trump, and the 2020 Election,’ Donald Trump has probably been one of the staunchest defenders of religious liberties and freedoms we have seen. He also makes it no secret that he has an evangelical council that meets with him periodically, ministers to him, advises him, and at times even lays hands on him and prays over him, something I also point out in the book. By selecting Amy Coney Barrett for the Supreme Court, Trump has acted with his conservative beliefs and his firm ‘faith in America’ in mind.”
“Trump is a true leader,” Strang believes, “and the election this year is so important for Christians and for people of all faiths. The president is a champion of our belief in God and of returning us to the foundation of our freedoms in this country.”
Stephen Strang’s newest book is “God, Trump, and COVID-19,”a dynamic follow-up to his earlier book, “God, Trump, and the 2020 Election.” The new book, in addition to sharing important insider information about China and the coronavirus, addresses a key question for Christians: “Where is God in all this?”
“God, Trump, and COVID-19” is published by FrontLine, an imprint of Charisma House, which publishes books that challenge, encourage, teach, and equip Christians. The book is available in hardcover, paperback and e-book formats at www.stevestrangbooks.com.
