Jim Caviezel, the star of the blockbuster anti-child trafficking movie “Sound of Freedom” praised President Donald Trump, likening him to King David
Appearing on an episode of Steve Bannon’s “War Room” podcast, Caviezel said, “When you go back to David, Trump is like that,” referring to King David.
“Here’s a boy that was called out, and many people didn’t like him … including his own — I’m talking about David now — own father,” he said.
“And he was selected by God,” Caviezel said.
“I believe Donald Trump was selected by God almighty … he probably didn’t think he was the best guy [to be president], or maybe he thought he was the best guy, because in my opinion, he’s pretty great.”
Caveziel recalled telling Trump, “When you watch this movie, you will be a peace and at rest because you, more than anyone — have done incredible things.”
“A guy like him will be able to sit there and watch this [“Sound of Freedom”] and feel safe and at peace, and I think that a lot of people that watch this that are following God, feel that way.”
The actor added that while Trump is private about his faith, he is “getting it done for our Lord and savior.”
Caviezel met Trump when he decided to screen the “Sound of Freedom” at his Bedminster, New Jersey, home in July.
Trump praised the film and told the crowd, “I hope you enjoyed it. It’s something that — I’m not sure if you’re supposed to enjoy or learn — it’s a combination, but it’s, that was a great movie.”
Trump said “it was an honor getting to know” Caveziel.
