France’s President Hollande issued a warning to US President Donald Trump:
29 January 2017
French President Francois Hollande on Saturday warned US President Donald Trump against taking a protectionist approach, which he said would have economic and political consequences.
“In an unstable and uncertain world, turning inward would be a dead-end,” Hollande told Trump in their first official telephone conversation, according to a statement from the president’s office.
The French president told Trump, who has expressed skepticism about international organisations, that France was committed to the United Nations, that the NATO military alliance was indispensable and the European Union should be reinforced. http://www.hindustantimes.com/world-news/france-s-hollande-warns-donald-trump-against-protectionism/story-sGUGKmec1TFHJZJFNgZnYM.html
Let me make this perfectly clear: a reorganized Europe is prophesied (Revelation 17:12-13), it will develop a ‘great army’ (Daniel 11:25), betray its ‘friend’ (Lamentations 1:1-2), and destroy the USA (Daniel 11:39).
Will some of Donald Trump’s statements and policies help lead to that?
Yes. Watch, for example, Donald: ‘Trump of God’ or Apocalyptic?
Might the rise of Donald Trump lead to someone like Adolf Hitler rising in Europe?
Pope Francis also seems to think so.
A reader send me a link to the following today:
ROME — Pope Francis has warned against growing populism in Europe, saying such movements could result in the election leaders of like Germany’s Adolf Hitler.
“In times of crisis, we lack judgment, and that is a constant reference for me,” the pontiff said in an in-depth interview with Spanish newspaper El Pais. “The most obvious example of European populism is Germany in 1933. After the crisis of 1930, Germany is broken, it needs to get up, to find its identity, a leader, someone capable of restoring its character, and there is a young man named Adolf Hitler.”
“Hitler didn’t steal the power, his people voted for him, and then he destroyed his people,” the pope added.
Pope Francis’ warnings come as a wave of populism washes over Europe, and as voters angry with traditional political elites throw their weight behind nationalist, anti-immigrant leaders.
During the same interview, the pope said he was reserving judgement on President Donald Trump. 1/23/17 http://www.nbcnews.com/news/europe/pope-warns-rising-populism-could-produce-new-hilter-n710681
While Pope Francis was being a little shrewd related to Donald Trump, in my view his message was essentially a warning that because Donald Trump was elected and Adolf Hitler was elected that Europe could turn to someone like Adolf Hitler.
Here are a couple of items I posted before Donald Trump was elected:
March 4, 2016
Despite what many think, people often will go for a ‘strongman’ in times of crisis. Donald Trump has portrayed that better to the Republican primary voters, thus far, than any other candidate. …
Donald Trump has already offended many Europeans. Should he become President of the United States, the Europeans will be offended by this and will take more steps to separate themselves from the USA. This does not mean that NATO must be abandoned, but I have felt for decades that the Europeans would attack the USA under the guise of a NATO exercise, and probably will have ground assistance from Mexico, a nation that Donald Trump has repeatedly offended during his campaign.
It does matter that Europe hates Donald Trump. If he becomes president, Europeans will intensify their desire to arm themselves. The time will come when Europe will turn to a ‘strongman’ of its own (cf. Revelation 17:12-13; see also Must the Ten Kings of Revelation 17:12 Rule over Ten Currently Existing Nations?) I have also long written that I believe that trade conflict could be the trigger for the start of WWIII. Donald Trump repeatedly (including in last night’s debate) said he would negotiate better trade deals for the USA. Expect him, should he win, to offend the Europeans. (Thiel B. BBC: ‘Europe hates Trump. Does it matter?’ COGwriter.com, March 4, 2016)

Will Babylonian Beast power this be anything like Napoleon or Hitler?
Well, it will be worse. …
What Europe will end up becoming will be worse than Napoleon and even worse than Adolf Hitler. Europe will support the final Antichrist. (Thiel B. Brexit or Hitler? Or worse? COGwriter.com, May 15, 2016)
May 17, 2016
London’s Mayor Johnson made some statements comparing the emerging European Union with attempts at European unity by Napoleon Bonaparte and Adolf Hitler (see Brexit or Hitler? Or worse?). Today, Donald Tusk, the President of the European Council, called this comparison absurd …
Adolf Hitler’s rise assisted the reemergence of Germany as a major power on the world scene. Germany’s economy grew, more people seemed to have hope, and it grew stronger militarily.
Yes, he made some racial and ethnic comments that some were not comfortable with. But since he made Germany great again, they were mainly overlooked. And persecutions ensued (including the Holocaust). After Adolf Hitler’s defeat, there were plans drawn up to win Europe economically, and then boost its military. And to a degree, this has began to happen. Though Europe is precarious in various ways (cf. Daniel 2:41-43). …
Will this Babylonian Beast power be anything like Adolf Hitler?
Well, if making Europe rise up and become the leading power on the Earth can be compared to Germany rising up prior to World War II, then the answer is clearly yes. (Thiel B. “EU’s Tusk slams Boris Johnson over ‘absurd’ Hitler comparison”. COGwriter.com, May 17, 2016)
December 4, 2016
And yes, the election of Donald Trump will encourage Europe to get its own ‘strong’ leader some day (cf. Revelation 17:12-13).(Thiel B. Austria vote may turn to the ‘right’. COGwriter.com, December 4, 2016)
The Bible clearly teaches that Europe will reorganize and give power to a strongman, referred to as the Beast:
12 “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. 13 These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast. (Revelation 17:12-13)
This will happen.
And while Pope Francis is attempting to warn against it, for a time the church associated with the ‘city of seven hills’ (Revelation 17) will support this leader.
