Trump and the American Roman Catholic Hierarchy
And yes, I am also well aware of all the videos on the internet showing Trump and Hillary Clinton together at the Alfred E. Smith Charity Dinner in 2016 (a Roman Catholic charity event) before the election, with Hillary applauding certain parts of Trump’s speech at times. It was not good at all that Trump was there. Of course not. It is as bad as the fact that the Trump inauguration would have a Roman Catholic cardinal, a Jewish rabbi, a “Protestant” minister, and Paul White (the fake female “pastoress” who supposedly “led him to the Lord”) all participating.
But pause and think about this. Is this unique to Donald Trump? Not at all! It’s what all politicians do, the world over. They view such things as good PR. Francis, the pope of Rome, made it clear he did not think Trump was a Christian; but Trump wanted the huge Roman Catholic vote in America. So he went to the charity event. If he was a true Christian, should he have gone? Absolutely not. But Trump is not a true Christian.
And yes, in his speech at this event Trump said people need “to stand up against anti-Catholic bias.” But what does this prove? Not much at all. As an American politician, he knows the vast power and influence of the American Popish hierarchy over the tens of millions of Roman Catholics in the United States, and he knew that what Francis said about him not being a Christian would cost him votes unless he did something about it. So he cosied up to the powerful Roman Catholic hierarchy in America. Was that a good thing? Absolutely not. But it doesn’t make him a “closet Catholic”, and certainly it doesn’t prove in any way that he is a secret Jesuit agent. Virtually all American presidential hopefuls and presidents, even the ones perceived as the most “conservative”, have tragically said good things about the Roman Catholic institution – and all to garner votes. It is very bad. But it is not unique to Trump.
Ronald Reagan, whom most American conservatives praise very highly, looking back with fondness and deep nostalgia to his presidency, was extremely cosy with the Roman pope, John Paul II. In fact, U.S. diplomatic ties were established with the Vatican under Reagan, and he and John Paul II worked together to bring down Moscow-backed Communism in Poland and to assist the rise to power of a Roman Catholic-backed version of Communism in that country.
The U.S. Congress, during Reagan’s presidency, was the most Roman Catholic in U.S. history up to that point. Was this good? No. It was very, very bad. It meant that much of the good that could have been done by the Reagan administration was not done. And yet, despite that, and despite much that was bad about his presidency, Reagan still did much that was good for America, and was a whole lot better than the alternative.
Trump and the New World Order Globalists
And yes, Donald Trump certainly rubs shoulders with many of the New World Order crowd, and the Council on Foreign Relations crowd, and the Illuminati crowd, and the Masonic crowd. This is very bad indeed. These (and other) groups are the globalists working for a one-world government. Most do not know it, but they are under the control, or the influence, of the Jesuit Order. So there is no doubt at all that Trump is a man who keeps some very dangerous company, and that he certainly will not be entirely his own man, as he likes to tell everyone. As with world leaders everywhere, there are hands resting on his shoulders and guiding him: powerful, shadowy figures stand behind him, most of whom he may not even be aware of. Just because the one-worlders did not get their preferred candidate, Hillary Clinton, into the White House, does not mean they will have no influence over the Trump administration. Sadly, they will have great influence over it. Their power behind the scenes is just so vast and far-reaching. There are men and women around Trump, and behind him, who are one-worlders, dangerous people, with vast power. And they will use it.
Time Will Tell What Kind of President He Will Be
For all the above reasons, it should be very evident to all true Christians that, even though a Trump presidency will almost certainly be better than a Hillary presidency (or the Obama presidency, or the Bill Clinton presidency, or the Bush presidencies), he should not be fully trusted. He is a mere man, surrounded by very, very powerful and dangerous men.
There are some aspects to his future presidency which are already cause for grave concern, not least his attitude towards Russia. When we hear that Russian President Putin was overjoyed at Trump’s victory, this makes warning signs flash in the head. Bright, loud warning signs. After his election he also backpedalled on his promise to pursue criminal charges against Hillary Clinton. And some of the people he has picked for certain key positions are very dubious choices.
But time will tell, as I said, as to what kind of leader he will be. Trump, for all his faults (and he has many), and despite his associations, may yet do good for America. He is no Christian. But throughout history God has moved even wicked men to do certain things which were good for the people under them. One just has to think of King Cyrus as one example. Read about him in Scripture, and see how the Lord permitted him to do much good for the Lord’s people, even though he, personally, was a heathen tyrant. Many other examples could be given. And it very well may be that a Donald Trump presidency will accomplish much good for America.
Or – he may yet do much evil. Powerful, shadowy figures can be discerned flitting about behind the scenes, and like Ronald Reagan before him, who appeared to want much that was good for America and the world but whose hands were so often tied by men far smarter than him, far more ruthless, and with far greater power and influence, Trump may be much more of a tool in the hands of ruthless men seeking world domination than anyone realises, or can discern, at this point.
