Prominent allies of former President Donald Trump warned of a “demonic territory” over the country and a “Satanic portal” over the White House as they spoke at a weekend conference.
The ReAwaken America Tour held what it described as a “sold out” event in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, on Friday and Saturday. Speakers at the far-right event included Pastor Mark Burns, right-wing strategist Roger Stone, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, the former president’s son Eric Trump and retired Lieutenant General Michael Flynn.
Burns, a staunch Trump supporter and GOP House candidate for South Carolina’s 4th district, took aim at the LGBTQ community, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham and leading Democrats in Congress as he spoke on Saturday. Notably, despite his unwavering support of the former president, Trump recently endorsed his incumbent opponent, Representative William Timmons, in South Carolina’s GOP primary.
“The Bible say that ‘we fight not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against rulers in high places.’ Satan is bigger than Lindsey Graham,” Burns said, drawing audible agreement from the audience. Graham represents South Carolina.
“You wanna get rid of Lindsey Graham?” the pastor asked. “Then get rid of the demonic territory that’s over the land. Y’all not talking back to me. I can’t get no help in here,” he added, drawing applause and some cheers from the large crowd.
