Lee said that Mormonism, the only major religion to have been created in the United States, taught its followers that America is a unique country brought about by the grace of God.

"We believe that this is a choice land that it's a great place to be. We believe that the founding of America was something that was brought about with a degree of divine intervention and certainly inspiration," Lee said before adding that all presidents arrive in the Oval Office with a heightened belief in the nation.
