Trump’s rise to presidency was not an accident. White Evangelicals were opposed to Barack Obama and they resisted his presidency. Not surprising as this was the same group of people who for centuries used the bible to convince black folks that slavery was justified by God and they should obey their masters. It did not please them to see one elevate to the height of presidency.
Not once did they say God bless President Obama. But God sits high and he looks low and he blessed Obama’s presidency. Eight years, no scandal, no chaos. He ruled with dignity and integrity.
Then came Donald Trump, a man known for unfair business deals, a womanizer and adulterer. A man who spoke derogatory about women even going as far as saying he grab them by the pu..y.
Evangelicals presented him as a man of God. They claimed he was sent by God and he was going to do great things for America. Their overpowering influence caused many to believe the lie.
But unlike Obama who they despised; Trump’s presidency was rocked by one scandal after another. It was full of hate, bigotry, and division. Many of the people around him were either accused of crimes or convicted for crimes. He failed to put the people first when the Corona Virus crisis hit, focusing more on the stock market.
White Evangelicals tried to fool the people again not knowing Trump’s purpose had already been accomplished and God had exposed them for who they are.
The funny thing is, Trump could have made a difference in uniting the people. He could perhaps have convinced his base who were mainly white, racist individuals that he was president for all, and he wanted a nation where people of all color or race live in unity. His base adored him. They might have listened. Instead he fueled the flames of hate and division.
That is not of God. That is not who God is. That was not what well thinking Americans wanted for the country. The people have spoken and he need to respect the wishes of the American people.
