TB Joshua, a popular television preacher in Nigeria, who prophesied that Hillary Clinton would win the US Presidential election has restored a Facebook post in which the “prophecy” was posted following a social media backlash.
The ‘deleted’ Facebook prediction that predicted victory for Hillary Clinton in the United States elections has been restored to the page of TB Joshua Ministries. The church said the post was ‘mistakenly removed.’
The failed prediction led to a huge social media backlash on the influential Nigerian televangelist, TB Joshua, who is known for making such electoral predictions and other general prophecies.
The BBC further reports that a email sent from the Social Media Department of the church clarified that the failed prediction was “mistakenly removed and has been reposted as such is not our policy.”
“Ten days ago I saw the president of America with a narrow win… What I frankly saw was a woman,” said the post, reiterating comments made by Joshua in an address to his congregation on Sunday before the elections on Tuesday, November 8, 2016.
TB Joshua has been widely mocked on social media platforms after the victory of Mr. Trump in the historic elections that saw Trump win, stunning the Clinton campaign, pundits, and the world. The tempo of backlash increased after the post was deleted from Facebook.

Republican Donald Trump, a billionaire real estate developer and a reality TV show star, defeated a former first lady and secretary of state, Democratic Hillary Clinton in a bitter race, winning over 280 electoral college votes to Clinton’s 228. Clinton won the majority votes but failed to clinch the 270 electoral college votes needed to win the presidency.
