SOUTHERN ARIZONA—In a brief campaign stop designed to demonstrate his tough immigration policies and let would-be border-crossers know that he means business, Donald Trump teamed up with his spiritual advisor Paula White Wednesday to pray for a hedge of protection along the southern border of Arizona.
The pair reportedly linked arms near the official border separating the United States from Mexico, and proceeded to pray a solemn prayer that God would place a spiritual barrier between the two countries, “in order to bless His chosen people, America.”
“In the name of Jesus Christ, strike dead those unclean illegals who would attempt to cross this holy chasm uninvited,” White reportedly prayed.
“It’s a great hedge, really big. I can’t even tell you how big and great it is,” Trump told reporters as he got back into his campaign bus. “My people tell me it’s the biggest hedge they’ve ever seen. Other countries don’t even have hedges. Sad!”
Trump reportedly later asked his bus driver to stop in Tucson for a photo-op in which he ate some “authentic Mexican pizzas” from Taco Bell, as a show of solidarity with the Mexican-American community and a sign of respect toward their culture.
