Defying most political pundits, Donald J. Trump is now the 45th President of the United States.
He is a controversial figure, both in the USA and abroad.
So what’s next?
Well, Donald Trump is expected to issue executive orders to reverse a variety of executive orders by the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama.
Some evangelicals consider that Donald Trump is the “trump of God” and will fulfill his campaign promise to “make America great again.”
The United States needs national repentance. An admitted adulterer and promoter of pornography, Donald Trump has stated that he has never seen the need to repent before God. Nor has he called for national repentance. He also has stated that he is fine with homosexual marriage.
Many of the Protestants and Catholics who support him hope that he will appoint judges to the US Supreme Court who are anti-abortion. Donald Trump may well attempt to do that.
But even if he can do that, understand that abortions will remain legal in most, if not all, states if the union.
There were violent protests in Washington, D.C. today:
January 20, 2017
An inauguration protest in Washington, D.C., turned confrontational on Friday, as several hundred black-clad protesters broke windows and police responded with pepper spray and a concussive device.
Ninety-five people have been arrested across the city, according to the Metropolitan Police Department. The city’s interim chief of police, Peter Newsham, told CNN that the violent group comprised a small proportion of the overall protests, distinguishing between that group and others protesting peacefully elsewhere.
Much of the violence broke out in Northwest D.C., not directly along the parade route. During clashes between police and protesters there, officers have used pepper spray in attempts to contain the protests, reports Patrick Madden of member station WAMU.
Patrick says that earlier in the day, protesters were running through streets, breaking windows with hammers and knocking over trash cans. http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2017/01/20/510770716/in-d-c-group-of-protesters-breaks-windows-police-use-pepper-spray
Expect more violent protests now that Donald Trump is president (cf. Deuteronomy 32:25).
A few hours after I wrote the above, I saw the following:
January 20,, 2017
Washington (CNN)Six police officers were injured and 217 protesters arrested after they smashed windows, damaged cars and threw rocks at police near Donald Trump’s inauguration ceremony on Friday in Washington.
At least two DC police officers and one other person were taken to the hospital for undetermined injuries after run-ins with protesters, DC Fire Spokesman Vito Maggiolo told CNN. http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/19/politics/trump-inauguration-protests-womens-march/
Donald Trump has stated that he will increase the debt of the USA to rebuild infrastructure and handle other projects. The Bible warns that debt is a curse (Deuteronomy 28:15, 44) and that the highly indebted nation will be destroyed in the end (Habakkuk 2:2-8).
Donald Trump has stated that he wants the Europeans to pay more for defense. And he is correct that most European nations are not paying their agreed upon share:
January 20, 2017
Trump renewed his criticism of the 67-year-old North Atlantic Treaty Organization, saying more European countries than just the current four need to meet the target to invest at least 2 percent of gross domestic product on defense. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-01-20/trump-will-keep-u-s-wedded-to-nato-alliance-s-stoltenberg-says
The USA actually spends more than twice as much on its military than all the other 27 NATO nations do combined.
Yet, when the Europeans start to pay more for their militaries, they will want more control. The Bible shows that this will end in disaster for the USA (Daniel 11:39).
Not everything that President Donald Trump will do will be good. Not everything that Donald Trump will do will be bad.
But he is NOT the “Trump of God” that some hope he is and attempt to tie to him in with New Testament scriptures like 1 Thessalonians 4:16, KJV.
