In an exclusive interview with The Brody File, President Donald Trump says becoming president of the United States has made him rely on God more than ever.

"I would say that the office is so powerful that you need God even more," Trump told The Brody File. "There's almost not a decision that you make when you're sitting in this position that isn't a really life-altering position. So God comes in even more so."

The Brody File conducted the interview Friday morning in the Blue Room at the White House. More newsworthy clips are coming soon. The entire interview can be seen this Sunday at 11 p.m. on Freeform (cable TV, formerly ABC Family Channel) during our special CBN News show. This is just the third interview President Trump has done from the White House, and it will be the only interview that will air in its entirety this weekend.

David Brody: "Let me switch gears. You know, it wouldn't be an interview between us if I didn't ask a 'God question,' if you will. How has that spiritual journey been for you? Especially being here and knowing the gravity of the office. Do you feel the need to pray more? Where are you on that?"

President Trump: "Well, I'll tell you what. I've always felt the need to pray. And you know that .. .So, I would say that the office is so powerful that you need God even more, because your decisions are no longer gee, I'm going to build a building in New York, or I'm going to do this. These are questions of massive life and death, even with regard to health care. You know we're working very hard on health care. But there, you're talking about life and death and you're talking about better lives. People living better because they have better health care at a lower price, which we're working very hard on. So yes, you realize these decisions are all so important. There's almost not a decision that you make when you're sitting in this position that isn't a really life-altering position. So God comes in even more so.'"
