Bachmann: Clinton will prosecute churches and nonprofits

Greg Nash

Former Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) got a standing ovation at a gathering of social conservatives on Friday as she cast the presidential election as a “life or death” decision and warned that Hillary Clinton would seek to jail Christians if she wins the White House.

Open your eyes.”

Bachmann warned activists at the Values Voter Summit in Washington that the U.S. “may not survive” another eight years of a Democrat in the White House. 

“It will either be Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, one of the two, and just like the Book of Deuteronomy teaches us that: I have set before you life and death, which will you choose?” Bachmann said.

The former Minnesota congresswoman, who has claimed to be advising Trump on national security, has previously said that God chose Trump to be the GOP nominee and warned that 2016 will be the “last election” if Clinton wins.

“History teaches us that when great nations fall in antiquity, they fall fast and they fall hard and, quite often, they are no more,” she said. “Don’t think we are any different.”
