Rev. Robert Jeffress -- one of the president's key Christian advisers -- asserted God has given President Trump the "authority to take out [North Korean tyrant] Kim Jong-Un," the Religion News website reports today (August 10, 2017).
Jeffress' statement follows Trump's deadly warning this week that North Korea would "be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen," if it continues to threaten the U.S.
The Texas preacher -- who leads a congregation of more than 10,000 people at First Baptist Church in Dallas -- is a strong Trump supporter.
Jeffress explained that the Bible makes it clear that "God has endowed rulers full power to use whatever means necessary -- including war -- to stop evil."
