Jackson said the tallit was "straight from Israel" and that his wearing it would be an "anointing from God."
"There are going to be some times in your life that you are going to feel forsaken, you are going to feel down, but the anointing is going to lift you up," Jackson said to Trump to cheers.
But why is he giving a Jewish gift to Trump? Does he think Trump is Jewish? Is he trying to convert Ivanka back?
A small minority of Christians do wish to wear tallitot.
The Bible that Jackson gave to Trump is meant to uncover the Jewish roots of Christianity. It annotates the Hebrew Bible with cross-references to Christian scriptures.
Jackson's TV network broadcasts one show from an evangelist who calls himself a "rabbi" who also tries to uncover the Jewish roots of Christianity.
It may be possible that Jackson honestly believes that Judaism is the key to his faith, although I cannot find any indication that he wears or uses a tallit himself when he prays. So this is still very, very strange.
