MY RESPONSE TO AN ATTACK ON CHRISTIANS’ SUPPORT FOR TRUMP

Intro:
Over the past four years, I have been challenged privately and on social media over my support for America’s President Donald J. Trump. On every occasion, I have endeavoured to explain my stand, especially when the challenge came from a fellow Christian. So it was that yesterday when a dear friend sent me the following Facebook post, I launched into another explanation, which resulted in a conversation that I have slightly expanded to form this blog. The post titled, “Trumpism and Nigerian misguided Christians,” was lifted from the Facebook wall of a certain Okechukwu Nwafor, who I presume to be a Christian and it read as follows:

“It was clear that Mr Donald Trump enjoyed fanatical support from misguided religious zealots from Nigeria. These Nigerian hypocrites masking as ambassadors of Christ suppprt Mr Trump because they believe that his mention of God sanctifies him and validates him as the best president. They believe that previous American presidents endorsed evil and anti-christian policies. Once Trump is a supporter of Christian doctrines he remains the champion of democratic principles in the eyes of Nigerian fanatical Christians.

“To these Nigerian ‘Trumpists’ satan is being persecuted by Mr Trump and therefore Trump must be sanctioned for a second term in office irrespective of how evil he is. These Trumpists believe that any Christian leader that mentions God is a warrior of divine blessing. And such a leader remains a saintly epitome of leadership.

“To them Trump must receive unquestionable support from Christendom. Nigerian Trumpists do not care about Trump’s unguarded speeches neither do they pay heed to his impetuous policies and administrative rascality. To these unreasonable Christian zealots, the mention of God by a Christian president equals an undeniable ticket to the White House.

“It is unfortunate that Nigeria breeds one of the strangest forms of zealots both in Christian and muslim religions. This poses a hydra-headed dilemma for the conduct of governance in Nigeria. This is because its ripple effect determines the trajectory of politics in Nigeria. We see this undermining democratic principles in Nigeria because once a leader masks his evil antics with fake religious postures his actions become sanctionable and gospel truth in the eyes of his adherents.

“Religion must not be allowed to obscure our sense of right judgement. Nigerian religious bigots wake up and face the reality. Your Trump is gone and gone for good.
Happy new year. Okechukwu Nwafor.”

My response:
I completely disagree with this writer. Many who describe Trump in negative terms have little idea who he is or what he stands for. I realise that the mistake of asking his supporters to go to the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021 is being magnified to overwhelm all the good he did and stood for. But as someone who has listened to his stance on public affairs from way before he ran for office, I can tell you he is one of the most consistent people in Washington and has fought for Christian/Conservative and democratic values.

It’s easy for someone in Nigeria to discuss speaking in Christian terms about faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, prayer, support for life and religious freedom dismissively because these things are largely ubiquitous in our environment. But in the Western world, which is being described as post-Christian, it takes a lot of courage to speak like that and attracts severe backlash. No one who is seeking public approval just for the sake of it would even mention these things. In my opinion, it takes belief to speak thus. Many Christians judge others by a strait-laced standard, forgetting that we are all still imperfect and God is not constrained in who He uses for His purposes.

On the political angle, what has turned Trump into a tragic figure is that his America First agenda came at a time globalism had dug in and was racing for the finish line. In a few weeks, those cheering his sack will be experiencing buyers’ remorse when they realise how radical the agenda of the Democratic Party is and how it’s determined to trample on civil liberties in pursuit of a one-word totalitarian order.


My parley on buyers’ remorse

I have so much to say on this but I’ve been doing so on my blog and Facebook from his first run for office. Right now, I find it exhausting to repeat myself and have written this reply only out of respect for you. Search for Donald Trump on my blog and perhaps check these two posts out:

DEAR AMERICAN BELIEVER, DO NOT WASTE YOUR INDIAN SUMMER!

AN IMPEACHMENT CONVERSATION: Is Trump’s Acquittal a Negation of Democracy?

Someone just told me today about two prophecies by Uebert Angel that Trump would win his first run for office no matter what but his second term will depend on acceptance by Christians.

Trump re-election rejection prophecy 2020 by Prophet Uebert Angel

(The preceding prophecy from 2016 can be accessed via this url:
https://youtu.be/lfwYT9Yos7Q)

That acceptance was not nearly as widespread as I’d have liked it to be in the US. And so the Indian summer I wrote about in the first post cited above seems set to be over. I thank God for Nigerian Christians who had enough discernment to support Trump. Instead of upbraiding them from a misguided stance of superiority, we should all gird our loins for the days of trouble ahead and preach Christ as fervently as possible.

Happy new year once again!

From my friend:
Thanks for the response. Personally, I’m not a Trump supporter. Apart from his Christian beliefs, I find his personality unattractive. His administration and anti-African and anti-Black stances, for me, are beyond unacceptable and he can well do without my support.

In the end, I believe we’re each allowed our freedom to our political and religious ideologies. But what worries me more than anything else is what one of my favorite authors, Brené Brown calls “Sorting”. On this, she writes that “we have geographically, politically and even spiritually sorted ourselves into like-minded groups in which we silence dissent, grow more extreme in our thinking and consume only facts that support our beliefs, making it even easier to ignore evidence that our positions are wrong. As a result, we now live in a giant feedback loop bounced back to us by the television shows we watch, the books we read, the blogs we visit online the sermons we hear and the neighborhoods we live in.” She quotes Bill Bishop thus “as people seek out the social settings they prefer – as they choose the group that makes them feel the most comfortable – the nation grows more politically segregated– and the benefit that should come with having a variety of opinions is lost to the righteousness that is the special entitlement of homogeneous groups.”

Happy New Year Doc ?

My response:
I’m glad you mentioned abhorrence of dissent or divergent views. That has become a major characteristic of the Democratic Party and the radical left that has hijacked it. They give no room for debate and dogmatically parrot what their influencers in the media and political establishment dish out. People are being hounded out of their stations, even students and professors in universities, because they dare to differ from the memo of the day from the leftist priesthood. Consider also the brutal censorship of Conservative voices by BigTech, including President Trump himself. Google and Apple just went after Parler, the platform Conservatives consider a freer alternative to Twitter, to prevent access to its app and thus limit traffic on it. Lawyers who defend Conservatives are threatened with disbarment, legislators who call for investigations into election fraud are threatened with expulsion from Congress. Liberalism has become the opposite of what it was meant to be- completely intolerant. How long before anyone who makes even the slightest departure from progressive ideas is “disappeared” as China does those who dare to criticise its government?

Most of the Christians I know who support Trump, American and Nigerian, don’t care for his personality. We wish he would be more delicate and more polite, etc. But you need to realise that it is his brashness and disregard of propriety that made him the kind of fighter needed to represent the right when the left had got accustomed to walking all over them without any pushback. What we consider his tasteless behaviour served its purpose to awaken the right to the lopsidedness in America with its two-tier system in almost every sphere that privileges the left and disadvantages the right.

More to the point of supporting him in the last US presidential election, there is no way a Christian could in good conscience have supported the Democratic Party candidate, Joe Biden, over Trump. Like him or not, Trump defended religious freedom and civil liberties– the right to life, especially for the unborn; the right to pray in schools; the right to school choice (including the right to home school one’s children which many Christians prefer due to the Communist brainwashing and anti-Christian ideas like evolution and critical race theory pushed in secular educational curriculum); the right to free speech and the right to bear arms; the right to work and earn a living (which has been infringed upon lately through endless lockdowns by Democrat governors and mayors); the right to try experimental treatments and to have the medical plan of your choice, rather than paying punitive fines for not using government-mandated medical services as was the case under Obama-era Affordable Care Act (also known as ObamaCare). Trump offered tax breaks that put money in the hands of all citizens and initiated economic policies that brought about what has been called a blue-collar boom with the creation of many small businesses, the resuscitation of manufacturing that had been outsourced to China and the like, leading to the creation of hundreds of thousands of jobs. He made schools safer by having resource officers with conceal and carry permits, thus reducing school shootings. I could go on and on. The bottom line is that contrary to what previous politicians in office did, he actually delivered on most of his campaign promises and sought to stop the hemorrhaging of American resources to the world while the country itself deteriorated.

Furthermore, the idea that Trump hates Blacks or Africa is MSM propaganda, with little or no bases in fact. Cherry picking his sentences, slicing and dicing his videos and giving the worst possible slant to what he says does not establish that he’s a bigot against overwhelming evidence that he’s not. For example, the opportunity zones he created via Senator Tim Scott, the First Step Act that led to the release from jail of many people who received unduly harsh prison sentences, thereby giving them a second chance at life benefited many African-Americans. He actually listened to Black leaders and pastors in the inner city to see how to improve life for African Americans, the latest being the $500b Platinum Plan aimed at increasing access to capital for Black-owned businesses. It is indisputable that as a result of Trump’s policies, Blacks and other minorities saw their lowest unemployment figures in US history during his administration.

What was the alternative offered by Biden? Here are just some examples. Government-funded abortion up to the moment of birth; lack of school choice; erosion of personal liberties- Ist and 2nd Amendments; mask and vaccine mandates; crushing lockdowns that close churches and small businesses while leaving open strip clubs, drug joints and mega corporations; the Green New Deal that will eliminate the use of fossil fuels leading to massive job losses in the oil and gas sector, limited power output with the attendant rolling black outs; subservience to China; massive spending on the global stage that does not benefit Americans themselves but line the pockets of corrupt politicians and technocrats; transgender policies that override parents in transitioning their kids from as young as 8 years, destroy women’s sports and endanger biological females who are lumped together with men pretending to be women; promoting victimhood among Blacks and other minorities while doing nothing concrete to empower them; undermining and demonising Whites by institutionalising trainings and policies purportedly aimed at combating White privilege, thereby building hatred between the races. None of the foregoing is in line with Biblical principles, so why would any Christian embrace Trump’s opponent?

On the hot topic of immigration, most American presidents before Trump, including Democrats like Clinton and Obama, spoke and acted against uncontrolled immigration- deporting illegal aliens, building holding facilities for them at the border and erecting border fencing. Everything took on new meaning when it was said and done by Trump because his political opponents and their MSM foot soldiers were stretching the truth to fit their narrative. Simply put, open borders are essential to the new world order they are trying to create and Trump was the unfortunate guy who was trying to go in the other direction.

Trump reminds me of Okonkwo in Chinua Achebe’s Things Fall Apart, swimming against the tide of an inexorable force- colonialism for Okonkwo and globalism along with the decay of Western civilisation in Trump’s case. He won a reprieve which I hoped will be longer but we see how things have turned out. Like Nigeria’s immediate past president, Goodluck Jonathan, he will soon be eulogised just as effusively as he was vilified. It has started already with the Gallup poll that said he was the most admired personality in 2020. Pretty soon,the wannabe despots who are about to take over will stop hedging about their real intents and their romance with the media will sour in due course when they unleash the inevitable heavy handedness their policies are hinting at. I can assure you there will be enough repression and misery to go round. So give it two years or less and the truth about Trump will become the public knowledge that rabid media attacks have prevented it from being and his resilient, optimistic and groundbreaking outlook in the face of extreme odds will be rightfully seen as legendary.

Good night!

    A huge part in politics is a game of identity. It’s a no brainer that Christians will support Trump. When someone is a leader in place, especially a place such as the White House, who holds your views, it’s only natural that your support is for the person.
    Choice is important and being condescending on Trump supporters isn’t right because if I don’t support someone who has my back and cares about what I believe in, who then am I to give my support?
    Like you rightly said too, the media also has played a role in portraying Donald Trump in a particular light. For example, clips of videos going viral.
    It is politics and I believe people should choose and support who they feel best agrees with their life policies.

    • I agree. Thank you for dropping by!

      • MBAM PATRICK CHINONYELUM

        Truthfully, am not a full Trump supporter, but I can perceive that Trump has very nice intentions for America just that his personality most times is unbearable. Though nobody is a perfect being. And I don’t see Trump as a core Christian and I believe that it’s the ideology of his political party that earned him much admiration from the Christian faith. My humble opinion…

  • Nedum

    What a perfect response!!
    This is called schooling!
    When someone thinks he knows something then realises he doesn’t know as much!

    • Not meant to humiliate but to explain. Many people, including those living in the US, are low-information folks and yet they publicly share commentary on vital issues that could misinform others.

      • Ejiofor Emmanuel

        Wow! You really explained a lot of things and opened my eyes to some angles concerning this issue which I hadn’t thought of before.

        To me, Trump has very good intentions for America just that his personality sometimes does not sit well with me. But he is human and every human does have flaws.

        I also can’t deny the fact that he really fought well for Christianity during his tenure and made sure that the society does not endanger the church.

        Let’s see how things will turn out in a few years.

  • Nedum

    You covered quite a lot of things!
    The African Americans that Trump has helped get out of prison isn’t talked about, the booming economy, the biggest tax cuts!
    I’m sure he should take down the post cos of the schooling

  • Agbowo Emmanuel chiagozie

    Americans will realise soon

  • Amaugo, Stephanie Chidinma

    Wow! A very long read but definitely worth it. I like how.balanced your response is. It’s sad how we “forget that we are all still imperfect and God is not constrained in who He uses for His purposes.” It’s true that he didn’t do well by telling his supporters to go to the Capitol but the attacks he’s receiving are just too much. We really need to fervently preach Christ. A lot is about to happen. Thank you, Ma, for sharing your wonderful opinion.

    • Thanks for reading, Stephanie! May we receive Godgrace to share the gospel even more than before. As the Lord Jesus said, “the fields are white with harvest.” Happy new year once again!

      • Iyorakpo Dorathy

        Such a detailed account! True Christian leadership is not easy indeed but nonetheless Donald Trump is Godsent to America.

  • Ossai Chidimma Linda

    It is true all you have said, only a pity that most have failed to understand. I simply hope and pray that the consequences would not be as grave as what we face in Nigeria as a result of electorate actions geared by ignorance.

  • No matter what people say, Trump is Godsend. God used him to oppose evil that was bent on overwhelming America. I know many resent his character but from the perspective of God’s will he is the Jehu of our time and God will still raise such people because that’s what our generation needs

  • Willie Albert Zikiye

    It’s easy to throw stones at people. Nonetheless, true Christian leadership is not easy.

  • It’s just a pity that the god of this age has blinded the eyes of many that they can’t say the right thing even when they see it. God will save us ooo

  • We live in an evil world where people pursue things that are ungodly rather than following the ways of God. Most people tend to opt for leaders that would give in to their evil demand not minding the repercussion at the end. May God Almighty have mercy on His people.

  • Okoli Ezinne Juliet

    We are all imperfect, President Trump too is human and can make mistakes. But I also can’t help but say that he has done some good too. He protected rights and freedom. Humans make mistakes but it shouldn’t outweigh the good they have done. Mama, you wrote well.

  • Blessing Chris Okeke

    Good morning ma. Trump has gone, and there’s nothing we could do to salvage our wrong now. Biden is far from the “resurrection” America needs.

  • Lawrence Cletus

    Good morning ma, I think we really cannot take away the fact that religion has been used as a political card especially in Nigerian politics…..let’s say we keep Trump aside and face the situation at home; we know how our current leader was “endorsed” as the answer to our prayers. I still watch Rev. Mbaka’s sermon about Buhari with buyers’ remorse.

  • Maduabuchi Christiana

    Trump is the best president. No matter what people are saying, he is still the best.

  • Paul-kayode praise chidiebube

    It’s all media manipulation and it’s sad that many people quickly jump and conclude that trump is a bad leader, just because everyone says he is. We should learn to do our own research and not just follow the crowd or do things because the majority support it.

    • Chidebe uchechukwu cyprian

      It will be an endless misery with regrets for the American Christians who joined in the fight against Trump for no just cause. A man who was single-handedly fighting for a better America and promoting Christian values. Trump from first day in office engaged himself in meeting world leaders, preaching peaceful co-existence and fighting against terrorism, they only Americans appreciated his efforts was by humiliating him. nothing good comes easy. Trump did his best as a president, even though he had his flaws which makes him a human, because nobody is perfect. Americans will regret what they did to president trump. I still respect him for being himself. He has a strong unwavering character which makes him trump.

      • Wow, you sound even more passionate about this than me. But I couldn’t agree more with you. Before a few months when the Equality Act (HR5 bill) that puts transgender people at par with other protected classes like racial groups and criminalises “discrimination” against them is passed, and the law suits against Christian’s begin to pile up, everybody’s eyes will be open to what Trump was keeping at bay- the trampling on religious freedom by the Democrats.

  • Nzubechi Victor

    Trump was just a firm moralist.
    Americans are used to excessive freedom without regulations and that explains their hatred for him.

  • CHUKWU MICHAEL

    what an innovating and expository one. although trump radicalness is extreme. but isn’t someone who is ruling a world power such as the United State of America, be fierce and fearless in all ramification. the problem of the society currently is bee enlightened to the extent we now extract good in a bad thing. we are been too educated to the extent we now challenge and argue on every thing whether it is immorally or bad. as Christians the values and believe this man trump has been supporting should be enough to endear him to Christians worldwide.

  • Abasiofon Nkem

    I don’t know who really gave them that perspective .. I love how neutral your response is.
    I just pray there will be no regret later and It doesn’t land like ours

  • Hmmm. It’s so unfortunate that most Christians don’t even care about defending things that are morally true instead they prefer to defend what they think is convenient for them. I just hope Americans don’t regret their actions like Nigerians.

  • NGWU RITA MMESOMA

    A leader with courage and agility and fearlessness..one who always speak the truth..one who has continuously fought for Christians..it is a shame the same so-called Christians are the ones fighting him…God save us from ignorance..

  • Nwankwo Chinonyelum Gladys

    On the Capitol issue,was it really Trump that told his supporters to go and attack or his supporters did it out of their own will based on the hate on him during his last days in office? honestly I don’t see where all these hate on Trump is coming from.He just expressed himself on how he’s feeling about Biden and so do Biden did about him but why are they taking Trump’s opinions personal, even to the extent of suspending his social media accounts, I still don’t get it.What’s Trump’s offense??

  • Though i loved Trump initially because of what I thought was truth and honesty but this past election made me believe that Trump was the worst president America ever produced…….from being anti black to his use of derogatory words.
    Trump was to America what buhari is to Nigeria. We can’t just cover his negative side with the fact that he supports the Christian.

    • My dear, there’s no evidence that Trump was anti-black or spoke in any damaging way but media propaganda. You need to understand how the media set agenda and the unethical practices that have become the norm in mainstream media reporting and punditry. Otherwise, you will be deceived into calling black white and white black.

  • The crisis between the Gaza and Israel made me to believe that American needs strong hand like that of Trump.. trump is a great man in his own personality.

  • OKORO UGOCHI ANGEL

    Sometimes when people make a claim, they cannot support it with substantial evidence. Accusing Nigerian Trumpists of being fanatical, so Christians supporting who protects their religion is being fanatical, Trump’s policies, are they only benefiting Christians? I’m asking Mr. Okechukwu.

  • Obiosa Oluchukwu Reward

    I have always argue to the favor of Trump as the best president America have ever gotten. for the fact that he was and is still against the homosexuality. I once called him a Savage man for his reply to Joe Biden on his campaign speech. and for him being anti black that I haven’t seen but heard from reports. but still he did to his best.
    Good of you ma, for knowing your stand and sticking to it.

    • Udegbulam Favour Oluchi

      I’ve always regarded Trump as a good man, probably because of his approach to Christianity. I think he worked for the good of his people.
      This is just politics we all know that.

  • Ajah Ugochi Agnes

    I don’t know much about Obama but I will say when he was the US president, he invited and legalize evil practices. The coming of Trump changed things and even laws legalized by Obama. He was always in support of the Christian even if he doesn’t believe in Christianity. It so sad to see the so-called Christians that he was fighting for were the same ones fighting and criticizing him.

  • Igwe Chioma Esther

    You have spoken extensively on this. Trump has done quite a lot to receive brash treatment from fellow Christians. Time will tell!! For now,fingers crossed.

  • Clinton

    I really think trump has good intentions for americans but people don’t understand this, is an eye opener for americans

  • God bless you ma. You’re real identity of christian, I see all anti trump as anti Christ.

  • Chibuife Isaac Chukwuebuka

    Very soon Americans will come to realize the meaning of the saying, “You don’t know the value of what you have until you lose it.”

  • Udop Reyner Ivor

    Despite his personality and hatred for the coloured races, Trump is a great man.

    • Where did you get the idea that Trump hates the coloured races? He hates them.so much he improved their lives far better than every other administration with record low unemployment figures for all minorities? Don’t believe everything you are fed by the MSM.

  • Akpom Chinazor Kamdilichukwu

    I know for a certain that THRUMP has good intentions for Americans but they are just too blind to see that. I just wish they can see that and know who the real enemy is

  • Madubugwu Happiness Tochukwu

    I think Trump tried his best, Leadership is not as easy as some thought he’s a human full of imperfections and weaknesses. so i don’t really think he worth any criticism.

  • Trump has always been in support of Christian

  • Eze Chinalurumogu Success

    This was a long read. A really long one but quite insightful. I must say that to some extent, I sort of agree with the post made by the Okechukwu Nwafor or something. Some Christians have become blind to Trump’s mindless comments and racial stands because he upholds the Christian religion. That’s not how it’s supposed to be. We ought to call black black.

    • The problem.is that many people have been deceived into believing all the lies the media told about Trump. That is not how it should be. It is very sad when educated people, especially those in mass communication, are not media literate. That means they don’t know how to interpret media messages and the biases/motivations behind them.

  • Chukwumalume Ozioma

    Trump’s administration has been the center of many arguments with my friends but I only keep seeing his immense, christian-like contributions especially in the restoration of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. It is only a matter of time before the true intentions of the current administration are manifested.

  • Chukwumalume Ozioma

    Trump’s administration has been the center of many arguments with my friends but I only keep seeing his immense, (and christian) contributions especially in the restoration of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. It is only a matter of time before the true intentions of the current administration are manifested.

  • Obiora Miracle onyinyechi

    No matter what people say, Trump is Godsend. God used him to oppose evil that was bent on overwhelming America.
    And I know that God will bring someone from our generation too.

  • Chukwuemeka uchechukwu pepertua

    The truth is that people will never settle for the first choice rather they prefer tasting both to ascertain a better one. Had it been that America learnt from Nigeria’s predicament but the deed has been done.

  • Sochi

    You always make sure u get your facts right before you talk about anything and that’s why all your responses are very clear.As for someone saying Trump’s personality is unacceptable,I disagree with that because if not any other thing I see him as a man who is very funny just that the hatred some have for him won’t allow them see his good part.

  • Wakwe Stephanie Ada

    Trump is a great man who has done great deeds for the people of America, America should look back and see the great work trump has done but they are blinded by foolishness.

  • No matter how good you are u must have haters, Trump changed all the bad laws legalized by Obama. I don’t expect him to be perfect but for me ,I think he is the best USA president.

  • Nwofor Gift Chinenye

    So many things I didn’t even know about
    You really explained alot ma
    Thanks

  • Religion should not take away our sense of right judgement. One should not just conclude and pass judgement from the surface or may be because of what one heard. Look critically

  • Eze Goodness mmesoma

    Am a little bit surprised though but the people that suppose to protect the interest of Christian are the people fighting.

  • Olusola Esther

    It baffles me when I see Nigerians more focused on the Issues concerning other countries than the one we have here in Nigeria. Whether Donald Trump is a Christian or a Muslim or a traditionalist or even an atheist, it shouldn’t be our problem, we have more pressing issues here in Nigeria, please.

    • Really? This is a narrow view because what happens elsewhere, especially in America, sooner or later affects what happens in Nigeria. You may not know it but the emergence of Buhari as Nigeria’s president was directly linked to the influence of powers that be in America, and the European Union. So the same powers that removed Jonathan removed Trump. Research it and realise Nigeria can not live in isolation or be insulated from global affairs.

  • Nwokedi Fortune Odinakachi

    Wow! this is a blast! You really pointed out key areas just as if he directed the commentary to you.
    It was really the belief of most people then that Christians were ignorantly fighting for Trump. Well said ma!

  • Obiogwu Onyinye

    Wow! This is really where the saying ” you don’t know/value what you have until u lose it” comes into play. May it never be too late for us oh

  • Chukwu Blessing Uzoamaka

    Well the truth is that I didn’t really know that Donald Trump was in support of Christianity per say
    But after reading this article
    I can say that He was in full support and also tried his best in any way he could help

  • Igwenagu Somtochukwu Osinachi

    The good ones will always suffer while the ones with bad intentions prevail….. May God save America!

  • Nwoke uchenna

    This is insightful,this opened my eyes to different angles

  • Adimorah Perpetual

    Trump fought for the betterment of the country,he stood his ground on what he believed is good for Americans. I think Americans really don’t know what they had.

  • Chinenye Enwerem

    Trump was a great leader.

  • Akpan Sarah Precious

    Trump was actually set out to do good to the Americans but they didn’t realize that.

  • Adimorah Perpetual

    The articles I read and stories I heard about Donald trump made me think Donald trump is a racist and the worst president American ever produced.Thank u ma for giving me on insight about it.

  • Iwuchukwu Vivian Chinagolum

    Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown. Leadership is not an easy role.

  • Iwuchukwu Vivian Chinagolum

    Uneasy lies the head that wear the crown. Leadership is never an easy role.

  • Ezeobi Chisom

    Trump did a lot for the Americans
    But lot of people fail to agree to this
    Thanks for the clarification

  • Mecha Favour

    Trump really supported the Christians and I don’t see why someone would think that that’s his strategy to gain support. He is a Godsend who came to redirect the course of things in the world.

  • Sunday Chenka Esther

    This was indeed worth the read! You gave the perfect response, Ma’am. One painful thing is that so many people know the truth but cannot come out boldly to say it for fear of being criticized or something. Just like Nigerians, after making the wrong choice, Americans are feeling the crunch already. No doubt Trump was a great man and in him I stand!!!.. God bless you so much, Ma! You’re indeed a voice.

  • Trump is a great man and I think every single of his achievement in office will count for him mindless of the opposition and media propaganda against him.

    • Those achievements are speaking so loudly now as Biden ruins the economy, deepens divisions, weakens the country on the world stage and generally messes up everything.

  • Obiaghanwa Paul

    Trumps ideology of governance have not been accepted by most people because of his radical stance but I think America will miss trump when he lives.

    • The media and elites didn’t accept him but the ordinary people who are in the vast majority did. We also know they were disenfranchised by the last election fiasco in America.

  • All humans have flaws, Donald Trump’s presidency have favoured some people ,at the same time some hates it , what I love most was his fight against homosexuality

    • Where did you get the idea he fought homosexuality? He put gays in office. Many gays and transgender people support hom, like the founder of the WalkAway movement, Brandon Straka; the ex-Marine, Rob Smith and the cleanup and voter registration activist, Scott Pressler.

      He, however, banned transgenders from serving in the military at some point and did not force everyone else to embrace or endorse the LGBTQ lifestyle.

  • Ibrahim Mariam

    Indeed no matter how good you are or try to be, opposition will definitely come,he was indeed a great leader but was not appreciated just like the former president of Nigeria Goodluck Joñathan, it is said that you won’t know the worth of what you have until you loose it tank u ma.

    When a leader slips in one way his followers tend to forget all the good deeds he has done for America ,I can tell u that trump is one of the best if not corrupt but one of the greatest minds that has sat on the white house sit…

    • Are you saying he was corrupt? One of the reasons he was removed was his exposure of corruption in DC and working to help the average person, rather than line his pockets and those of the well connected.

  • Chisom Efobi

    This writeup is indeed an eye opener!!!!
    I am a Trump supporter Full time!!!

    He’s human and humans makes mistakes,I mean that’s what makes us humans.

    People forget to remember his accomplishments while criticizing him, his quest for peace, his unwavering support for the church,enhancements of the military budget, tax cuts, providing better lives for them and many others.

    It’s such a pity for Americans, I hope It won’t be too late before they realize they actually chased their vindicator away with their hands.

    Certain things concerning this issue were hidden you’ve been most helpful ma’am.

  • Elijah Akuma

    Well, it all boils down to the fact that the world does not like good things. When a Saviour rises, the world will always find a way to stop him. For me, I like Mr. Trump, but he is gone now. Let’s see what Biden will offer.

  • Ezema Johnmartins Kelechi

    It is normal for someone to project his or her belief in whichever position s/he finds himself. Normally, one should vote for someone based on what the person has or will have to offer not necessarily the religion. If God wants to save the world, it is not written anywhere that it must be through a Christian or a Muslim, after all, religion isn’t what makes people good or bad. We are first human before any other thing and a coin has two sides to it. Anyone that has the interest of the people at heart should represent the people and with that, love will take the place of hatred.

  • This write up really added to my knowledge “big time”…. I need to read more; thanks for giving us this assignment ma’am ?

  • Chukwuma Ifeanyi Williams

    This post shows different perspective and views of Trump and Christians.
    Personally I think Trump was good with Christians.

  • Ugwu Bridget

    Trump tried his best to stop some evil practice brought or rather legalized by Obama but it’s a shame the Americans couldn’t see that

  • Onoh Chinenye

    You’ve left no stone unturned in answering your oblivious Facebook friend, I like that. The convo was educative and enjoyable to read as well.
    “The stone which the builders rejected has become the cornerstone(Psalm118:22)” I sincerely hope that this will be the case for Trump soon enough.

  • Peter Chinecherem Nathaniel

    Permit me to start by saying, Americans are ingrates. They’re too quick to look for faults than acknowledge the good deeds that Trump has done for America. He is human for Christ sake, he’s bound to make mistake. I feel the attack is more against religion than political.

  • Chukwuemeka uchechukwu pepertua

    The truth is that the world will never settle for the first choice but will prefer tasting the both. I wish America learn from Nigeria situation but the deed has been done

  • Victoria Chigere

    Trump wanted the best for Americans but they refused to see his good works for them.

  • Dennis Lovelyn Chisom

    Trump is a good Christian man,
    Even Jesus Christ was persecuted.
    May God bless him.

  • Odumuko Oluchukwu Victoria

    For some one that claims to be a Christian, Donald Trump has a problem displaying the fruit of the spirit.

  • David Nneka

    Trump was first human before he became a Christian, and the flesh is bound to make mistakes, because one is a Christian doesn’t mean he has to be perfect, well no one can. For does saying that Trump isn’t representing the Christian faith well, should remember that Trump is only human like everyone else.

  • Orazulume udochukwu victoria

    Trump did much more for america .. but Americans are yet to realize it .
    Let’s see how bidens reign will be.

  • UFOH CHIDIEBERE STEPHANIE

    People should always do what’s right and not necessarily following what other persons are saying or may say, because people would still find something to say.

  • UFOH CHIDIEBERE STEPHANIE

    Trump was actually a good man, and he displayed this during his tenor, but seems people do not like him all the same, let’s wait and see what joe has to offer

  • Igboka chidimma

    Trump was hated by all but was actually a God sent but he has been pushed out of the office just like they did to Jonathan. Just hope they realize before its too late.

  • Agbo Peace

    Wow! You really spoke about a lot of things and it opened mY eyes to so many realities, Trump really strived and did a lot of things for American but they fail to agreed to these,he supported the Christians and I don’t see why someone would think that thats his strategy to gain support. That’s what affect people because they don’t value the effort of a sitting president but they always chrous the name of that one who will not make any effort if he is given d opportunity and at last when they might have realised that, they all swim in regrets.

  • Uwadiegwu Mercy Amarachi

    This is great….I believe we are all humans and all humans are not perfect,we all make mistakes. I can say Trump was one of the best presidents in the world. During his regime, he fought for Christians and made sure nothing bad happens to the church….. I pray God helps the Christians now that he’s gone.

  • Nnochiri Chinecherem Nnabuike

    Trump really have good plans for America. But Americans seems not to believe in him, I believe they will realize this soon

  • Odey-Oko Victor

    Unemployment dropped a significant percent during the tenure of trump, policies made in the Favour of the United States were put in place. Mistakes he made was being a racist or being too American because a lot of immigrants were deported back to their country which invalidate the notion that says America is a FREE country.

    • Really? Criminals were deported and some of those with illegal residence status. That has nothing to do with America being free or not. Open doors is unhealthy for a country and it is proper for a leader to put the needs of his own people first.
      And this talk of him being racist is nonsense! The economic policies he put in place boosted the economy it was actually a blue-collar boom, a fact the lying media only began to acknowledge after he left office). Who do you think most of the blue collar workers who benefited from his policies were? Minorities- Blacks, Asians, Hispanics. And his policies brought about Record low unemployment for these minorities. Who do you think uncontrolled immigration hurts most? It is these same minorities who have to complete with desperate migrants for scarce jobs, migrants who are willing to live in subhuman conditions and be paid a pittance, thereby snatching the jobs they the poorer Americans depend upon for their livelihoods.
      Gain knowledge before addressing issues. Media propaganda against Trump was to achieve regime change to stop his nationalistic focus and hand the country over to globalists. It will not benefit Americans in the long run, irrespective of their races, except the media, tech and Wall Street oligarchs who run worldwide ventures.

  • Uyanna Chibuike

    No one is perfect, trump has his flaws and sins. He has achieved and done a lot of good things. So it pains me when I see Christians who he is fighting for go against him. I don’t know if the reason why people don’t like trump is because he speaks his mind. All I know is that trump will still come back in power.

  • Okpechi Amarachi

    I don’t really know much about Trump,but with the little I know,I think his intentions for America were pure.

  • Nwaorgu Cynthia

    At the beginning of this post, I wondered why you said a good christian would support Trump over Biden but after reading your explanations I understand better

  • UTAZI PATIENCE

    Trump is a man of integrity, people words never made him to compromise.He had good plans for America but American were blind to see it.

  • Ado-Okoye Stanley Chidera

    All I can say is that everyone is allowed to freedom of any religious ideology of their choice and trump isn’t excluded, but he just needs to be nice and more polite while making some of his statements, cause personally I think he’s not.

  • Ikechukwu Fountain Chidera

    It’s easy to throw stones at people, nevertheless true Christian leadership is not easy.

  • Emeka Nnaji

    America first should be the number one call for every American president. For Trump putting christians first I don’t know however I don’t support immoral act.

  • Uchechukwu Chikezie

    President Trump is a president who is delighted in God’s work and fight for Christian freedom. He also a moralist who believe in the right of every individual should be address but he was removed from office due to hatred.

  • Iwuchukwu Samuel Ifechukwu

    When you have proper plans for a people and align it to faith and christianity, you’re faced with a lot of criticism and so was the case with Trump.

  • Okochi Chinonso

    Trump is a strongman, tough man, but he promised to protect them. And they believed him because they knew they’d be vulnerable. They chose to support somebody that would protect them. And that’s basically what the Christians in the United States did. They felt they were under attack, and He promised to defend them.

  • Nweze Somto Maryann

    True leadership is not easy, people are blinded by corruption. We pray God help us

  • Ama Mitchelle Chisom

    I am personally not a fan of Trump but maybe he has good intentions and perhaps needs to come up with a better way of executing them.

  • Ikeh Christiana Chinenye

    Trump is indeed a God sent to the Americans but too bad they didn’t see his worth.

  • Ikonne Vicory Ozioma

    This post has enlightened me more.
    It’s such a pity for Americans. The worst is that, it’ll be late when they will realize that they actually chased their vindicator away with their hands. I’m watching Biden anyway.

  • Nebo cynthia chinaza

    Trump really supported the Christians, I don’t know why people don’t understand this and we all should know that he is a human man and bound to make mistakes

  • Tosin Ojora

    All I want to say is that Mr. Trump has done his part in bringing US to where they are now, let us hope that Biden will do better.

  • Onuzulike Chukwuebuka Prosper

    I never knew Trump is a believer. This is indeed interesting. Thanks Ma for this information

  • Chinonyere Emeka

    When someone decided to stand for Christ and dares to be different, boom critics will just spring out.

  • Yeah..that’s true. Christians really support trump because of his opposition over evil doings. No matter how nice and righteous you are, enemies must be present
