Donald Trump, no stranger to viral video and news, took the internet by storm in a clip that showed him praying with a South Carolina woman after she asked him to do so.
In the clip, Trump is seen approaching the counter to pick up some food while on the campaign trail as one of the employees petitions him for a prayer.
“Yes, go ahead, go ahead and do that,” Trump responded, taking her hand in his right hand and placing his left hand on her shoulder.
That's so awesome! That's what we need, someone to pray over us someone to tell us that things will get better if we put our trust and faith in God! Bless this young woman for praying for our President 🙏

Twitter users gushed with pride and emotion.
“That’s so awesome! That’s what we need, someone to pray over us someone to tell us that things will get better if we put our trust and faith in God! Bless this young woman for praying for our President,” one user said.
“Beautiful,” another commented.
“One reason why America was and will always be good. Without a secure moral basis we are at great risk of being manipulated by powerful forces out for themselves. So that’s their first target,” yet another responded..
“South Carolina is now my favorite state!” enthused one user.
“God’s blessings pursue this ice cream worker for she is an Ambassador for Jesus Christ!! She is in my prayers! Placing Psalm 91 over our President Trump & his family in Jesus Name Amen,” wrote someone else.
“God Bless this women [sic] and our FOREVER Favorite & Beloved President!!!!!” added another.
CNN has reported that Trump is more committed than ever to making a successful comeback for the White House. Since declaring his candidacy last fall, Trump has been present on social media – particularly his Truth Social platform – and seen around the country at speaking engagements. CNN wrote:
Appearing in New Hampshire before a second stop in South Carolina, Trump said he was “more angry” about the direction of the country and vowed to return to the first-in-the-nation primary state “many, many more times” as he looks to replicate his first-place finish in the Granite State in 2016.
“This is it,” Trump told members of the New Hampshire GOP at their annual meeting in Salem. “We’re starting right here as a candidate for president.”
On the way to South Carolina, Trump told reporters aboard his plane that Nikki Haley – the state’s former governor who served as his ambassador to the United Nations – called him in recent days to inform him that she is considering launching a 2024 presidential bid.
Nikki Haley had previously stated she would not run against Trump if he made a bid for the White House in 2024. It is unclear how she thinks she has a chance to compete against him or what she hopes to accomplish by going up against not only the former president but possibly Florida’s popular governor Ron DeSantis as well.
Trump nevertheless encouraged her to do what she felt was best.
“I talked to her for a little while, I said, ‘Look, you know, go by your heart if you want to run,’” Trump said about Haley. “She’s publicly said that ‘I would never run against my president, he was a great president.’”
Speaking from Mar-a-Lago last October, Trump spoke to an intimate crowd of supporters declaring his intentions for 2024.
“In order to make America great and glorious again, I am tonight announcing my candidacy for President of the United States,” the former preside stated. “This will not be my campaign. This will be our campaign altogether.”
“Together we will be taking on the most corrupt forces and entrenched interests imaginable. Our country is in a horrible state,” he said. “We’re in grave trouble. This is not a task for a politician or a conventional candidate is a task for a great movement that embodies the courage confidence and the spirit of the American. This is a movement this is not for any one individual. This is a job for 10s of millions of proud people working together from all across the land and from all walks of life young and old, black and white, Hispanic and Asian, many of whom were brought together for the very, very first time,” he added.
