WHAT IF …? (My Musings about the US 2020 Presidential Election)
What if Jeff Bezos, the world’s richest man and Amazon founder, were to throw his weight behind Donald Trump, his well-known foe, in the US presidential race due to the insensate attacks on billionaires and the socialist inclinations of Democratic Party presidential hopefuls?
And what if as a result, the Washington Post, owned by Bezos, tones down its anti-Trump rhetoric and tries to balance its coverage of the White House?
What if other billionaires were to follow Bezos’ enlightened self-interest example and support Trump as well with their donations and media holdings’ unbiased coverage?
What if other media follow WaPo’s lead and give Trump credit when he deserves it and criticise him constructively, leaving maybe the CNN whose ratings are currently in the toilet anyway compared to FoxNews? The latter though right-leaning does not drown out leftist voices, particularly since its purchase by the Murdochs in 2018.
What if (in other words and even in the absence of the foregoing) the prophecy given by Mark Taylor in 2011* that the mainstream media will agree with Trump (incredible though it sounds right now) is fulfilled in the near future? Trump has his flaws but it would be nice for the mainstream media to revert to truthful, fair and balanced coverage of news, including news about Trump.
The truth is- the average person is sick of liberal talking heads that are constantly spewing nonsense in the media and feeling that they can think for everyone else. People just want the facts and balanced interpretation, a representation of different points of views so that they can make up their minds. Whatever happened to the free marketplace of ideas?
So what if all the aforementioned were to happen and conservative/godly voices began to get their fair share of airtime and space in the media?
What if, as a result, the reverence for godlessness, insanity and socialist fantasies were checked and a restoration of traditional, godly and entrepreneurial values occurred?
What if, most importantly, a massive Christian revival broke out in the circumstances and spread beyond the US to cover the earth?
What if …?
I believe that all things are possible to those who believe, and pray. Our ‘what if’s’ may be just a prayer away.
Postscript: It’s obvious I want Trump to win, again. I’m one of those who believed he was chosen by God for such a time as this even without knowing about prophecies made about him, like the one by Mark Taylor. And I believe that he can win again even if the scenarios I painted above do not materialise because God can do the impossible if He chooses to.
Some of the reasoning behind my stance went into many Facebook posts and comments. Thankfully, some of it is captured in the following related posts.

Take note of No. 9 under ‘Commander in Chief’ prophecy received on 28th of April, 2011.
“Even mainstream news media will be captivated by this man and the abilities that I have gifted him with, and they will even begin to agree with him, says the Spirit of God.”
