Jeremiah Johnson, a self-described “prophet” and the head of his eponymous Jeremiah Johnson Ministries, recently stated during a religious program that aired online last week that President Donald Trump is going to do something drastic about abortion.
Johnson’s proof? His dreams.
The so-called “prophet” said he had a vision of Trump in the Oval Office during one of his dreams late last year, in which the president was looking into a mirror. Instead of his own reflection, however, the image of Abraham Lincoln appeared in its place.
This could only mean one thing to Johnson: that Trump would issue a presidential order on abortion, similar to how Lincoln made a decree during the Civil War about slavery.
“I believe that God revealed to me that he raised up Abraham Lincoln in a unique time in history. What God used him to do was to issue an Emancipation Proclamation concerning the slaves,” Johnson explained, according to a report from Right Wing Watch. “I believe that God has raised up Donald Trump to issue an Emancipation Proclamation concerning the millions of babies that have been aborted.”
Johnson also believes his dream revealed that baby boomers would be the ones to help Trump carry out the policy.

“The Lord said to me, ‘It will be the gray hairs and the white hairs that will determine the future of America’ …so I believe that baby boomers for Trump are going to arise in this nation,” he said.
Johnson’s comparison of Trump and Lincoln fit in with recent polling about the two presidents, separated by more than a century-and-a-half from one another.
Per prior reporting from HillReporter.com, a poll conducted by YouGov found that a majority of Republicans today (53 percent) believe Trump to be a better president than Abraham Lincoln was.
