Pastors from Nevada pray with Donald Trump during a visit to Las Vegas in October 2016. Plenty of moviegoers in Lynchburg, Virginia, heaped praise on the movie. Photograph: Evan Vucci/APIt was, everyone agreed, a miracle. The unexpected election of Donald Trump (https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/donaldtrump) in 2016 was an act of God, who chose the philandering billionaire and reality TV star to restore America’s moral values.
This is the theme of The Trump Prophecy, a movie telling the story of Mark Taylor, a former fireman from Orlando forced to retire after suffering from PTSD, which premiered on Tuesday.
Between graphic nightmares featuring demonic monsters and hellish flames, Taylor received a message from God in April 2011, while he was surfing television channels.
As he clicked to an interview with Trump, Taylor heard God say: “You are hearing the voice of the next president.”
And so it came to pass, although it took another five years and a national prayer campaign. Taylor duly wrote a book, The Trump Prophecies: The Astonishing True Story of the Man Who Saw Tomorrow … and What He Says Is Coming Next, on which the movie is based.

Sign up for the US morning briefingThe belief that Trump’s election was God’s divine will is shared by others. Franklin Graham, the prominent conservative evangelical, said last year that Trump’s victory was the result of divine intervention. “I could sense going across the country that God was going to do something this year. And I believe that at this election, God showed up,” he told the Washington Post (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/acts-of-faith/wp/2016/11/10/franklin-graham-the-media-didnt-understand-the-god-factor/?utm_term=.ca5b8a49335b).

Taylor has made other claims, which he calls “prophetic words”, including that Trump will serve two terms, the landmark supreme court ruling on abortion in the Roe v Wade case will be overturned, and that next month’s midterm elections will result in a “red tsunami”, strengthening Republican control of both houses of Congress.
Barack Obama will be charged with treason and Trump will authorise the arrest of “thousands of corrupt officials, many of whom are part of a massive satanic paedophile ring”. Trump will also force the release of cures for cancer and Alzheimer’s that are currently being withheld by the pharmaceutical industry.
About 1,200 cinemas across the US were screening The Trump Prophecy on Tuesday and Thursday this week. There may be repeat showings if there is demand. Given several rows of empty seats in the Regal River Ridge Stadium in Lynchburg, Virginia (https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/virginia) – a conservative evangelical heartland – that may prove unnecessary.

There are a LOT of stupid people in this country. Hypocites too. Evidently evangelicals are the worst.

See my signature and vote accordingly before it is too late.

The Roman republic failed because of lack of interest and complacency and then the Emperor who took power declared himself a god (see#1).

Hmm, if Donald is 'the chosen of god' to his adherents, then to those adherents doesn't his authority as god's representative 'trump' any other authority, like say the Constitution? The courts? The civil laws? One possible USSC judge already seems to think that being president is the equivalent of being emperor, above the law.

Caligula anyone?

they should really read that book if they believe it.
“Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.”

King James Version (KJV)

I've stopped watching the news as it's too depressing. But, I will be at the polls in Nov.

…and anti Semitic as all hell…………...

but then not unusual in Europe over the centuries. Every time a king/emperor/government/military stuffed up, blame the Jews.
Been going on for 2,000 years.
