President Trump warned Democrats on Wednesday that hints of religious intolerance may hurt the party.

Trump made the comments to the Daily Caller after the outlet asked him about a series of recent controversies involving Democrats or party-linked organizations and religion, including how Women's March Inc. has dealt with allegations of anti-Semitism and the way Catholic judicial nominees picked by the Trump administration were questioned during their confirmation hearings over their beliefs.

“I think it’s a crisis for our country,” Trump told the publication. “I think it’s a terrible thing for our country and I think it’s certainly a terrible thing for the Democrats because I don’t think they’re going to be able to get away with it."

Trump's remarks come on the same day White House press secretary Sarah Sanders drew attention from some political commentators for saying Trump was elected in 2016 because God "wanted Donald Trump to become president."

"I think God calls all of us to fill different roles at different times and I think that he wanted Donald Trump to become president, and that's why he's there," Sanders told the Christian Broadcasting Network. "I think he has done a tremendous job in supporting a lot of the things that people of faith really care about."
