Yesterday I was at a family gathering and my brother and his brother-in-law were discussing Donald Trump.
Below was my fist comment that already got my brother very angry with me yesterday.
Donald Trump is a distraction for the coming Economic Collapse and World War 3
Then, my brother proceeded to tell me, "The problem is that people do not work together."
Then, my brother asked me for a solution. I told my brother we need to get back to sustainable living. He only got more angry with me.
It seems to me your brother thought you were taking sides with Liberals environmentalism and Prince Charles.
I am finding out many people form their beliefs systems based around money and if this economy collapses the wake-up call will be brutal.
I know a man who believes he is a devoted patriot, and as a Veteran, he volunteers for the benefits of Vets all over the country. We were having a conversation about politics and I mentioned something about Trump that wasn't exactly enthusiastic, and he accused me of not liking Trump. I said, "I didn't say I don't like him." He challenged me again, and I replied, "The thing about Trump that makes me cautious is, that as president, he could suddenly change course without any warning." The Vet calmed down, and agreed: "He could change course."
I don't think I was thinking of the same thing as the Vet was when he agreed with me.
It comes down to one's Faith. Donald Trump is not Catholic, nor is he openly faithful in a religious sense. He doesn't want to offend anyone's religious sense, but that can work both ways.
As such, I tend to agree with your quip, that he's a distraction for the coming economic collapse and WWIII. A lot of his followers see him as a SOLUTION to the imminent economic problems and military threats against America. But without a firm faith in the true God and the one true religion, a political leader could easily go off the rails and head into the wilderness even while he THINKS he's doing the right thing.
