Former Rep. Michele Bachmann, who is currently advising Donald Trump's presidential campaign, said in a new interview "God raised up" Trump to be the GOP's presidential nominee.

Bachmann spoke with David Brody of CBN News, a Christian news channel, about the man who could become president in a few months.

"This is one thing I know from the Book of Daniel — the bottom line of the Book of Daniel is this: it teaches us that the most high God lifts up who he will and takes down who he will," Bachmann said.

"And I look at this primary race that the Republicans had, 17 great candidates. I actually supported Ted Cruz. I thought he was fabulous, but I also see that at the end of the day God raised up, I believe Donald Trump, who was going to be the nominee in this election.

"I don't think God sits things out. He's a sovereign God. Donald Trump became our nominee. I think it's very likely that in the day that we live in, that Donald Trump is the only individual who could win in a general election of the 17 who ran. Maybe I'm wrong, I don't know, but I do know that the Bible is true and that Daniel teaches the most high God, which is one of God's names, is the one who lifts up who he will and takes down who he will."

Bachmann said she prays every day Trump will defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton in the race.

Bachmann served in the Minnesota state senate starting in 2001 before moving to the U.S. House in 2007, where she served for eight years. She is now advising the Trump campaign on foreign policy.
