(OPINION) Express – Donald Trump will remain the President of the United States, at least according to bizarre Bible prophecy claims made by a prominent American evangelist. Donald Trump has spectacularly lost the US election last month, with a record number of 81 million votes cast for his rival Joe Biden.


But the US President is yet to conceded defeat and Republicans up and down the country cling on to hopes an ace up Mr. Trump’s sleeve could turn the election results in his favor.

On December 2, President Trump issued a video statement reiterating his baseless claims of electoral fraud. President Trump called the circumstances around the November 3 election “very strange” and vowed to defend the “honesty of the vote”. He said: “This is not just about honoring the votes of 74 million Americans who voted for me. “It’s about ensuring that Americans can have faith in this election. And in all future elections.”

A popular US evangelist and founder of the Philadelphia Trumpet magazine has now announced President Trump will retain his seat in the Oval Office by the grace of God. According to pastor Gerald Flurry of the Philadelphia Church of God, Mr. Biden’s presidency “is contrary to Bible prophecy”.
