But at the end of the announcement, the tycoon asked if he could make some “off the cuff” remarks.

"God gave us grace on November 8, 2016, to change the course we were on," he said referring to the date of President Trump was elected.

"God had been taken out of schools and 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 Bibles and spend time with our families."

He went on to praise the President for delivering the “best economy”.

"With our great president, vice president and this administration and all the great people in this country praying daily, we will get through this and get back to a place that's stronger and safer than ever,” he said.

Late last week MyPillow announced that 75 per cent of its production will now be making cotton face masks for health care workers after a three week turnaround to convert its factory.
