“I’m the commander–see, I don’t need to explain–I don’t need to explain why I say things. That’s the interesting thing about being the President.

“Why is this man in the White House? The majority of Americans did not vote for him. Why is he there? And I tell you this morning that he’s in the White House because God put him there for a time such as this.” – Lt. General William G.
