“And I want to make sure that, I mean, I know that Americans are gonna wake up and we’re gonna get back to looking to God instead of social media and we’re gonna look back to Jesus because Jesus saves and this country was founded upon the Constitution, was built on godly principles and we’re gonna fight for that,” she added. “And I just want to encourage you guys to pray every day for this nation.”
Then she began her prayer, saying “I love God and I want to pray real quick.”
“Dear God, I’m not really good at this,” Mahalet said, laughing. “But I just want to say thank you so much for giving us this opportunity to be in the White House. Thank you for giving us a great leader like Trump, Mr. Donald Trump, and I would like to thank you for waking up our nation.”
