One of Donald Trump's spiritual advisor says she told him God wanted him to run for president - but warned that there would be a "price" to "pay."

Televangelist Paula White has known the ex-president for 22 years. After seeing her in a television apperance, Trump rang her up and brought her to Atlantic City for private Bible studies.

    She is one of several faith advisors to Trump, including Robert Morris, who resigned as pastor at his megachurch this week after admitting to sexually abusing a 12-year-old girl in the 1980s.

    White is a controversial figure even among religious conservatives and has been investigated by Congress for alleged financial improprieties at one of her megachurches.

    She was a headliner at this week's Faith & Freedom Coalition's "Road to Majority" conference in Washington, DC, where she praised Trump.

    At the event, Trump slammed the evangelical crowd for attending church but not going to polls.

    White claims Trump told her back in 2011 that he didn't "like the way this country is going" and consutled her about running for president.

    "And then, he turned around, and he said, "Well, what does God say?"' she recalled.

    After praying with "30-something" friends, White told Trump: "Sir... you're going to be president one day."

    "And a tear ran down my eye and I told him, 'I hate the price that you're going to pay.'

    "Little would any of us have imagined the price this man, his family and many of you - many of us - have paid."

    However, White says she thinks it was "worth it" because of the pro-religion policy Trump passed during his term.

    Later, she claims Trump told him in 2014 that he was "going to be president, and you're going to be faith director."

    "I'm not sure either one of us knew what we were doing, but I know God was with us," she said.

    White led Trump's Evangelical advisory board during his campaign and gave the invocation prayer during his inauguration.

    Trump eventually tapped her to join the White House staff as an advisor for the Center for Faith and Opportunity Initiative.

    During the conference on Friday, she claimed religious freedoms were under attack "as never before" under Joe Biden's presidency, which was frightening because religious freedom was "the bedrock which all our other freedoms fall upon."

    "Something is wrong and we have to stop it and this November we will absolutely make our voice heard," she said of the upcoming election.

    She later said: "Devil, we've had enough... this is an ideology that is against God, against our faith, and against our rights."

    White, who is the senior pastor at City of Destiny Church in Apopka, Florida, has consistently supported Trump through his legal woes.

    She said the day he was convicted in his hush money trial "a sad day for all Americans as we watched firsthand the judicial system weaponized to go after President Trump for political gain."

    During his reelection campaign she claimed "Christians that don't support President Trump will have to answer to God."

    After he lost the election, she repeatedly called for "angelic reinforcement" to overturn Trump's defeat.

    Weeks later, she gave the opening prayer at a Trump rally that egged on the January 6 insurrection at the US Capitol.

    Earlier in 2020 she declared: "We command any satanic pregnancies to miscarry right now!"

    "We declare that anything that's been conceived in satanic wombs that it will miscarry, it will not be able to carry forth any plan of destruction, any plan of harm."
