‘My Pillow’ founder Mike Lindell shifted 75% of his U.S. manufacturing plants to generate 50k masks per day. During his announcement at the White House, he shared a hope that Americans will embrace God and hope during this crisis:
“God gave us grace on November 8, 2016, to change the course we were on. God had been taken out of our schools & lives, a nation had turned its back on God. I encourage you to use this time at home to get back in the word. Read our Bible”
The media went crazy mocking Lindell for his statement.
The ‘My Pillow’ CEO spoke out about his statement and about the media:
Video below of Lindell’s comments during the press conference:
Mike Lindell thanked President Trump for his leadership and then turned to President Trump and explained that he wrote something off the cuff, asking if he could read it?
“God gave us grace on November 8, 2016, to change the course we were on. God had been taken out of our schools and lives. A nation had turned its back on God. And I encourage you to use this time at home to get back in the word. Read our Bibles and spend time with our families.
Our president gave us so much hope, where just a few short months ago, we had the best economy, the lowest unemployment, and wages going up—it was amazing.
With our great President, Vice President and this administration, and all the great people of this nation praying daily, we will get through this and get back to a place that’s stronger and safer than ever.”

We met with Mike Lindell in February to discuss his involvement in the Trump campaign as the Minnesota campaign chair. Mike told us he had no interest in politics and couldn’t tell the difference between a conservative or a liberal, a Republican or a Democrat. Mike said it only took one meeting with President Trump to know that he was the real deal and that he liked what he saw. Mr. Lindell revealed that President Trump is very smart and is constantly asking questions of the people he’s with. He told us that President Trump has a genuine interest in people, and he listens to every word they’re saying while he’s engaged in a conversation with them. President Trump is blessed to have so many people like Mike Lindell on his team.
