Trump’s Spiritual Adviser Paula White Is Using the Coronavirus Crisis to Bankroll Her Church
Since October, White has served as the special adviser to the Center for Faith and Opportunity Initiatives in the Trump Administration. During a coronavirus-themed “prayer session” that she delivered to her online congregation, she conflated the coronavirus outbreak—a quickly-spreading pandemic which has infected more than 6,000 Americans and by Wednesday had killed 146—with the fundraising needs of the City of Destiny, an Apokpa, Florida, church in which she holds a prominent position.

“There are some, at least one White House official, who used the term ‘Kung-Flu,’ referring to the fact that this virus started in China,” she asked. “Is that acceptable?”
