“Why would you recruit people who would come in and have sex reassignment surgery and be on the sidelines? It made no sense, so Donald Trump got rid of that mandate and that requirement,” she continued.

Bachmann was referring to the previous ban the Obama administration lifted on transgender service in 2016. The Trump administration has since rolled out a policy barring most transgender people from serving in the military that took effect on Friday.

“He has stood up where most Republicans wouldn't dare to stand up,” Bachmann went on to say of Trump. “Donald Trump has had the courage in the fortitude, and I will say to your listeners in my lifetime I have never seen a more biblical president than I have seen in Donald Trump.” 

“He has so impressed me with what he's done, and we haven't even talked about Israel,” Bachmann said before adding that she sees Trump as “highly biblical.”

“And I would say to your listeners we will in all likelihood never see a more godly, biblical president again in our lifetimes so we need to be not only praying for him; we need to support him, in my opinion,” she added.

Bachmann has served as a member of Trump’s evangelical advisory board in the past. She also previously hailed Trump's presidential victory in 2016 as “proof positive of what the Lord did.”
