Trump: A Good President?

By Mark Swarbrick

Will Donald Trump make a good president if he is elected? According to the Bible, no. Believe it or not, the Bible actually says that the American people will be unhappy with a Trump presidency. Here is where it says that:

Proverbs 29:2 – “When the wicked rule, the people groan.”

People say, “But oh, Trump will do this and that, Trump has business experience, Trump isn’t a politician so we can trust him; who cares if he is a bad man, so long as he makes America great.” The fact is, it doesn’t matter how good a business man he is supposed to be. It matters not whether he says all the right things. It matters not what he does, for the Bible says that when a wicked man rules, the people will groan, no ifs, ands or buts; the people will not be happy. God’s word does not lie. Many voters will be terribly disillusioned by Trump if he is elected. Bank on it. I don’t say so. God’s word says so.

Just in case anyone has any doubts about my appraisal of Trump’s character, let’s be absolutely clear:  Donald Trump is a bad man. According to court testimony, he beat his ex-wife, pulled out handfuls of her hair and then raped her. He owns strip clubs and gambling casinos. With bribery and cronyism, he got the government to use eminent domain to kick a lady out of her home so he could build a parking lot for his gambling casino. While campaigning for president, he uses filthy and vulgar language in front of women and children on national TV. He talked about the size of his penis during a televised debate.

Just look at what else Trump does in the debates: Name-calling, insults, and interruptions are the Trump method. He doesn’t know how to debate. He argues and fights. That is not the way statesmen debate; it is how schoolyard bullies misbehave. Remember the Iowa debate that Trump did not attend? It was substantive and peaceful. You really got to hear everyone’s positions without having to listen to Trump’s braggadocio and constant interruptions.

Trump, in the last debate said that he would order the military to target women and children. When the moderator pointed out that such orders were illegal and immoral and then asked Trump how he would handle the military disobeying his illegal orders, he said, “No, they will obey me. Trust me; they will obey.”

Michael Hayden, former four start general and former director of the CIA stated that, “If he (Trump) were to order that…the American Armed Forces would refuse to act…You’re required not to follow an unlawful order…That would be a violation of all the international laws of armed conflict,” Trump’s statement is unprecedented. He is saying that he would order our military to commit war crimes.  Apparently political advisers have warned Trump about this and he has now walked that back, saying he would not give illegal orders. But what would he do once he had presidential power? The words have left his mouth already, showing he does not have the wisdom to be president. He has also said that he would institute torture of captured terrorists. That also is a war crime, a violation of the Geneva Convention, and he has not backed off of that.

At his Rallies, Trump has begun asking his followers to lift their hands and make a pledge of loyalty to him. This is eerily reminiscent of Hitler’s demands for oaths of obedience to him and the “Heil Hitler” salute. In America, the police, military officers, politicians and presidents never vow elegance to any man. Elegance is only pledged to the Constitution.

The chaos seen at trump rally’s: Filthy language from Trump, encouragement of violence from Trump, harassment, people thrown out into the winter cold without their coats, at Trump’s order. Attendance of his rallies by bigots, Neo-Nazis and white supremacists are common. If Trump is elected, you can expect this sort of unrest to percolate down to all levels of our government and society.

Yes, Trump is a wicked man. Consider his proud bragging about his sexual conquests of women, bragging of the wives of other men that he has seduced and bedded. Then he has the gall to say that he is a “real good Christian,” while at the same time claiming that he has never told God he is sorry for anything. Bad man; I rest my case.

The bottom line is; America cannot be made great again without first making America good again. Mark my words. If Trump is elected, we will spend the next four years groaning with sorrow and disappointment. If you don’t believe me, then believe God: Proverbs 29:2 – “When the wicked rule, the people groan.”
