“Let me pray for you,” Mahalet, an Ethiopian immigrant requests President Trump
After President Trump finished his speech to the Young Black Leadership Summit at the White House, a young woman in attendance yelled something that stopped the president in his tracks.
“Let me pray for you,” Mahalet, an Ethiopian immigrant adopted by a Christian family in Indiana, said. Trump stopped the music and brought her up on stage to the presidential podium, according to Justin Wilson, who attended the Turning Point USA event.
A US Christian woman has given a speech at the White House about the importance of praying daily for US President Donald Trump and then prayed over him.
Mahalet was born in Ethiopia.
Abandoned by her parents, she lived as an impoverished orphan.
Mahalet was adopted by a loving, Christian American family at 11.
This week @TPUSA brought her to the WH. She asked to pray for our President. He brought her onstage-then this happened: pic.twitter.com/kYoUT365Rq

The woman, Mahlet, whose second name is not known, was speaking as part of a Young Black Leadership Summit at the White House.
She first thanked the president and said the “political warfare” in the country is a “spiritual one” also.
She encouraged people to pray for the nation and fight for the “Godly principles” the country was founded on.
Mahlet, who talked about being adopted from Ethiopia at 11 years old, thanked God for giving the US “a great leader like Donald Trump”.
She added in her prayer: “God protect us, protect our president as he’s going through so much scrutiny. I believe you gave him to us and I believe he will accomplish so much more.
“The enemy tries to attack us every single say and discourage us every single day, but he has no room no more.”
