ORLANDO, Fla.—President Donald Trump was swarmed by international media, dignitaries and fans upon his arrival at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, over the weekend. And when one delegate asked the president to sign a copy of the new, best-selling book “God and Donald Trump” by Stephen E. Strang, Trump not only obliged but held up the book for all to see.
The image and video was tweeted and re-tweeted, and showed that Trump engages with people and is a major player on the world’s economic stage.
Strang, founder of Charisma House, which published the book, said the attention for the book was unexpected but appreciated.
“All of us at Charisma are thrilled and thankful for the attention the president brought to “God and Donald Trump” Strang said. “But the bigger picture is that President Trump continues to embrace his evangelical supporters and remains on board with the issues that are important to the faithful. This is in addition to being a respected influencer on the economic stage for his extensive and successful business background. Those who are realistic about the progress of this country will not deny Donald Trump’s hand in furthering the issues that are important to Christians, such as the protection of religious liberties and the defense of life. Real and tangible evidence of a growing economy under this president’s leadership is seen every day in the financial headlines as well.”
According to the Washington Post, which made mention of the presence of the book at the forum, Trump is the first U.S. president to attend the World Economic Forum since Bill Clinton in 2000.
Politico extensively covered “God and Donald Trump” after its headline-making appearance in Davos, noting that Strang met with Trump briefly on the campaign for the biography and attempts to explain evangelical fervor for Trump.
Strang is an award-winning journalist and successful businessman who began his career as a newspaper reporter at the Orlando Sentinel. He later founded a Christian publishing house and media company while interviewing and writing about nearly every Christian leader in the country over the past four decades.
