Potential National MP Misa Fia Turner: Donald Trump 'chosen by God'
Wednesday 30 Nov 2016 8:48 p.m.
A potential National Party Member of Parliament believes Donald Trump was chosen by God to be the President of the United States and says same-sex marriage is "against moral values".
Misa Fia Turner has a chance of coming into Government after this weekend's by-election in Mt Roskill.
National's candidate in the Mount Roskill by-election is list MP Parmjeet Parmar. If she wins this weekend, Ms Turner is the next person on the list to move up the ladder.
Ms Turner has publicly shared her beliefs on Facebook on the validity of stigmata - sores that appear on the skin and represent the crucifixion of Jesus.
She denounced same-sex marriage as "against moral values" and she believes Mr Trump was anointed by God.
National Party president Peter Goodfellow said that "while Labour likes to attack people based on Chinese-sounding names or exclude people with proud religious beliefs, National welcomes people of all ethnicities and cultures".
Mount Roskill is a largely religious electorate.
