“Sound of Freedom” star Jim Caviezel discussed President Donald Trump during an interview on “War Room” this week, where he talked about the smashing success of the independent film that has brought awareness to the horrors of child sex trafficking.
To date, “Sound of Freedom” has raked in more than $50 million nationwide, rocketing to unprecedented success, per Forbes.
The film, which tells the true story of Tim Ballard and his fight to rescue trafficked children via his work with Operation Underground Railroad, has additionally become one of 2023’s top 25 highest grossing domestic movies, Forbes also reported.
During his interview on “War Room,” Caviezel stated that President Trump “will be at peace and at rest” when he watches the film because “you, more than anyone, have done incredible things.”
Caviezel seemed to be alluding to Trump’s efforts to combat human trafficking while he was president. During his first term in office, the president took a strong stance against human trafficking and even established the first-ever White House position aimed at fighting the global scourge.
Per the Trump campaign, there was a 14 percent increase in human trafficking convictions in 2017. He also launched a historic Interagency Task Force to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons.
Caviezel observed, “…Donald Trump, people talk about how private he is about his faith. Well, he’s getting it done for our Lord and Savior.”
The star also explained that he believed Trump had been selected by God to serve as president of the United States. He said, “I believe Donald Trump was selected by God Almighty, and I’m talking about the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit God. And he listened to the voice, and probably did not think he was the best guy, or maybe he thought he was the best guy. Because in my opinion he’s pretty great.”
President Trump is set to host a special screening of “Sound of Freedom” at the Trump National Golf Club Bedminster next week. He will be joined by Jim Caviezel and Mexican filmmaker and producer of the film, Eduardo Verastegui.
