President Trump’s Accomplishments: And the Spiritual Lessons to be Learned from Them
Updated in June 2022 after the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade:
Proverbs 14:34 – “Righteousness exalts a nation, But sin is a reproach to any people.”
President Trump was in office for 4 years (2016-2022) and his accomplishments for the transformation of the nation were historic, world-changing, and revolutionary. He sparked a resurgence of American nationalism, conservative populism, and massive economic growth that not only advanced the security and prosperity of the nation, but also provided greater protection in the defense of religious and civil liberty for the Church, for Christians, and for the advance of the Gospel. He was an Imperialist conservative and reforming President in the most striking and remarkable ways, overturning the old Liberal and establishment order and forming an entirely new way of governing. And this notwithstanding his personal vanity, the opposition made against him by the Liberal left, as well as the D.C. establishment, the Deep State bureaucracy, and the Fake News media. He overturned nearly every Obama disaster, decades of Democrat corruption and moral depravity, and even a great deal of Republican incompetence and failed policies. President Trump arguably proved himself to be the greatest of modern U.S. Presidents; and this by his promotion of common sense pro-life Christian values, free-market capitalist policies, a strong U.S. military and defense policy, a conservative pro-life judiciary, the strengthening of law and order, the support of first responders and law enforcement agencies, the rebuke of Liberal ideology and political correctness in the news media, and his incredibly humorous and entertaining rallies to promote his “Make America Great Again” political platform. Not since the 5th century Christian emperor Justinian has there been a merging of statesmanship, national politics, and popular entertainment. Praise God for President Trump and his administration (2016-2022)! He cut through much of the ungodly political correctness and anti-Christian agenda of modern American politics. And now in the summer of 2022 and just 2 years of the incompetence and moral depravity of the Biden administration, it is obvious that a new Trump administration would be a Godsend and a blessing to the nation, even more so than it was in 2016 after the unmitigated disaster and wickedness of the Obama administration.
Does President Trump have a bit of arrogance and personal vanity along with other sins that are a bit offensive? Yes, of course; but so did many of the greatest kings of the OT (both Jewish and Gentile) who served God in punishing the wicked and advanced God’s will and purpose (such as David, Solomon, Asa, Jehoshaphat, Uzziah, Hezekiah, Josiah, Nebuchadnezzar, Cyrus, Artaxerxes, Ahasuerus) as well as many Christian Magistrates throughout church history (Constantine, Theodosius, Justinian, Charlemagne, Alfred the Great, and many others). President Trump’s personal sins as well as some of his compromising public policies are no different than many of these men who are arguably the greatest Christian magistrates and statemen in history. Would it be better if the nation had a magistrate as godly and devout as the Puritan leader Oliver Cromwell whose virtue and devotion to the Lord Jesus Christ and to Biblical reformation was a model even for pastors and Christian leaders? Yes. Would it be better to have as president as devout as the Colonial Puritan magistrate John Winthrop who wrote “A Model of Christian Charity” one of the greatest works on a Biblical doctrine of political and social ethics? Of course! But that is certainly not going to happen in modern America.
And therefore, to be unthankful to God for President Trump and for all that he has done for America; and therefore not to support his presidency, seems to me to be entirely perverse and Antinomian. In fact, it shows a gross ignorance of Scripture, sound doctrine, history, politics, the Biblical doctrine of civil government, as well as a lack of godly discernment. It is certainly not Reformed or Puritan-minded! To be neutral, the be a never-Trumper, or to support some third party candidate is entirely cowardly and Antinomian. It is to blind oneself to the manifold evils of the demonic party of the Democrats, their atheist agenda, their vast political corruption, their outrageous deceit and propaganda, and their morally depraved policies that are entirely contrary to the Law of God and the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Not to have supported or voted for President Trump (for the sake of the nation, for the sake of the church, for the sake of our heritage and children) and to combat the greatest form of evil in modern history, the Democrat party, is in itself a work of the Devil. it is utter compromise with the most depraved forms of evil in the history of the nation. It is being an accomplice to their atheist and abortion agenda, their paganism, their idolatry, their blasphemy, their culture of death, their statism, their Marxist ideology, their anti-Christian views and values. This should be as clear as day now in the summer of 2022!
So, absolutely as a strict Puritan and Reformed pastor, I am deeply thankful to God for His providence in raising President Trump up for the four years he served from 2016-2022; and would be fully supportive of his running in 2024. I have known him since the 1980’s (as well as his political views) and always knew that he could do great things for the nation on account of his exceptional leadership skills and his ability to bring people together to make deals that are beneficial to the security, the peace, the religious liberty and the prosperity of the nation at the same time protecting the interests of God’s Church and Kingdom and the advance of the Gospel of Christ in the nation. For the most part, I was not wrong. And I will indeed continue to write to him (as I occasionally do) to give my advise in particular matters as well as my encouragement and support.
Accomplishments: President Trump has been the most consequential conservative pro-Christian President of the modern era. Here is a list of the top 40 of his present accomplishments and some of the lessons to be learned from them.
- President Trump defeated ISIS in less than 3 years and stopped the murder and carnage that was allowed to persist under Obama cowardly defense policy. US forces under his command have taken back 99% of their former caliphate in Syria and Iraq and have killed over 40, 000 terrorists, including the leaders of the most destructive terrorist organizations in the Middle East, ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as well the leader of the Iranian Kuds forces Kaseem Soleimani. In contrast, under Obama, over 2 million innocent people died in the Middle East as a result of the Syrian civil war and the murderous rampage of ISIS. President Trump has almost completely ended it all, and yet the Fake News media gives him no credit at all and doesn’t even report on the constant victories over terrorist actors and organizations. The liberal media praised Obama even though millions died, and now they curse President Trump even though he has defeated wicked and barbaric enemies, and has saved thousands of Muslim, Jewish, Christian, and Yazidi lives by defeating ISIS and other terrorists as well as prosecuting the war on Islamic terror with great courage and zeal, giving military generals the authority to make decisions on the battlefield without political correctness.
- President Trump prevented Crooked Hillary Clinton, (a morally depraved feminist pagan known by the FBI and all other intelligence ops. to be a fraud, a cheat, a crook, and a traitor to the nation) from becoming the President of the U.S. By preventing crooked Hillary from becoming POTUS, Trump has thwarted the greatest evil imaginable upon the nation, and the continuance of all the previous corruption, incompetence, and moral depravity in Washington under Obama. He has also stopped a potential Civil War as a result as the evidence of her corruption would have been exposed while in office. If it wasn’t for the ungodly influence of the deep state in Washington and the establishment bureaucrats, she crooked Hillary would be in prison as a traitor to the nation along with many of her aides.
- President Trump in many ways exposed the fraud, the corruption, and the demonic evil of the entire Democrat party and fake news Liberal media, including crooked Hillary, the DOJ, the FBI, and other Obama cronies who have corrupted almost every American institution. The Obama administration was crooked in every way and a disgrace to the nation: Brennan, Yates, Comey, Strzok, Ohr, McCabe, Mueller, Page, Biden, as well as Obama himself and the Russian collusion hoax fabricated by Obama and crooked Hillary in the attempt to bring down president Trump. They are being exposed as the greatest crooks and conspirators in American history, and should all be in jail! Crooked Hillary Clinton has been exposed for several high-level crimes against the nation, including: 1. The largest national security scandal and cover-up in American history, allowing Chinese hackers to obtain all her emails in office. 2. The largest campaign finance fraud in U.S. election history, that of $84 million. 3. The Uranium One deal giving Russia ownership of one-fifth of U.S. uranium deposits in exchange for $145 million in donations to the Clinton Foundation. 4. Hundreds of millions of dollars were stolen by the Clinton Foundation designated to go to Haiti and their rebuilding after the 2010 earthquake. 5. The Clinton’s were co-conspirators with Jeffrey Epstein and his human trafficking of under-aged girl sex slaves. 6. The Clinton’s were also co-conspirators in the Harvey Weinstein rape culture in Hollywood, knowing full well his predatory behavior and abuse of women. The Clinton’s along with much of the DNC are the most deceitful, perverse, criminal reprobates in modern history as well as traitors to the nation. And all of these scandals the ungodly Liberal media are desperately and wickedly trying to suppress, while President Trump has exposed them as frauds.
- President Trump uncovered the vast corruption of the Chinese government and their dealings with the Democrat party, including crooked Hilary Clinton, Joe Biden, Diane Feinstein, and many others. China had not only hacked Hillary Clinton’s server and stolen her emails but also uncovered the spy ring that infiltrated Diane Feinstein and her office. China’s hacking of Hillary’s emails directly contributed to the arrest and/or execution of over 20 CIA spies working under-cover in China, as well as the expansion of China’s global influence, which is the most singular threat to the nation as well as the advance of the Gospel throughout the world. Democrat leaders (such as the Clinton’s, the Biden’s, and the Feinstein’s), have been for decades, under-handedly selling American intellectual property to China for hundreds of millions of dollars turning a blind eye to their theft and corruption. This is diabolical and treacherous; especially considering China is the most powerful anti-American global force in the world, as well as the largest anti-Christian communist state.
- President Trump cleaned up much of the corruption in Washington from the Obama administration and all their fraud, deceit, and secret money-laundering. Obama added $10 Trillion to the national debt with arguably no substantive benefit to the nation. The vast amount of the $10 Trillion was funneled to Liberal and Marxist groups putting every American household with an estimated debt of $150,000. This was the largest act of public extortion and thievery in the history of the world, and that which may never be remedied but in fact bring the nation to bankruptcy in the future. President Trump is putting safeguards into the federal bureaucracy so that it will never happen again.
- President Trump passed a tax cut bill that massively improved the American economy and labor force, greatly increasing the GDP, the stock market, business investment in America, and the personal income of all American citizens. By doing so, he has brought back the American middle class that was nearly destroyed by the failed socialist policies of the Obama administration.
- President Trump has passed numerous deregulation orders, policies, and laws that have greatly improved American businesses, national commerce, and personal freedom at the same time eliminating the previous massive corruption and the economic downgrade of the Obama administration. He has stripped the EPA of its Liberal environmentalist pagan agenda and placed leadership and executive orders for the proper stewardship of national resources.
- President Trump, on account of his tax cut policies and deregulation, contributed to an increase of personal wealth of American families between 25-35% throughout the nation. There has been a greater increase in personal wealth and Stock market values since the Reagan administration of the 1980’s with history breaking records in every financial category. The increased income of personal households has contributed to the highest consumer confidence in decades, even in the midst of the Covid pandemic.
- President Trump passed labor and economic policies that contributed to the lowest unemployment rate throughout America in decades, including the lowest ever among African Americans and Hispanics. President Trump, who is often falsely slandered as a racist, has contributed to the greatest increase of personal freedom and economic security among minorities in the nation, and in a more significant way than any President since Lincoln and the Emancipation Proclamation.
- President Trump stacked the American judiciary with conservative constitutionalist pro-life and pro-Christian judges to promote the rule of Law and Constitutionalist justice, as well as to fight against the Liberal agenda. He has also appointed more conservative federal judges to the bench than any American President in modern history. President’s Trump’s appointments will go down as the greatest conservative swing of the judiciary in American history over the past 50 years essentially nullifying the Obama administration’s attempt to undermine law and justice in the nation.
- President Trump by appointing Brett Kavanaugh, Neil Gorsuch, and Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court has largely returned the Supreme Court back to a moderately conservative position with regard to Constitutional principles and Christian values that include the protection of religious liberty, free speech, gun rights, law and order and pro-life interests as well as rescinding many of the Obama administration’s executive orders that were directly contrary to truth, justice, and freedom in the nation. It was President Trump’s leadership as president and his 3 appointees to the bench that led to the recent historic overturning of Roe v. Wade by the Supreme Court sending the issue of abortion back to the states.
- President Trump withdrew from the scandalous Paris climate deal and ended the global warming pagan policies of the Obama agenda. Global warming is a lie and fabrication of the Liberal left and their Evolutionary paganism that is designed to undermine American political liberty and economic strength by trying to subject the country to Third world corruption while disregarding the vast pollution output of China, India, and other countries. The Democrat-Establishment global warming policy is a tool of the global leftist anti-Christian paganism of the U.N. and the Liberal establishment.
- President Trump rescinded TPP and has begun negotiating and establishing fair and reciprocal trade policies with individual nations (England, Mexico, Canada, South Korea, etc…) that protect American workers, the national economy, and building up American manufacturing, thus ending decades of destructive trade policies and the thieving of America by establishment elites and foreign and adversarial nations like China. President Trump has also passed the new NAFTA known as USMCA to reform and strengthen American trade policy with Mexico and Canada significantly contributing to greater justice and American prosperity and protecting American workers.
- President Trump greatly improved our relations and defense of Israel and the Jewish people. He declared Jerusalem the capital of Israel, moved the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem (building a new and improved facility, and has promoted national policies further protecting the nation of Israel against Iran, and other radical Islamic nations. He has also signed into national policy executive orders condemning the evils of Anti-Semitism. The protection of Israel, the one true Democratic Republic in the Middle East, is set now on a path of greater diplomacy with Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and other pro-American Muslim nations adding further stability and peace to the Middle East.
- President Trump instituted a travel ban on Muslims from dangerous countries that have significantly reduced terrorism in the country. The constant reign of Islamic terrorism that was normalized under Obama, seen every month on national news with hundreds of murders and acts of Islamic terrorism has significantly declined to a trickle. The Muslim immigration and refugee plan initiated by Obama that would have radically corrupted the nation was also rescinded, and most of the refugees are being sent back to their country of origin along with all Muslims with terrorist connections.
- President Trump showed outstanding leadership in opposition to Iran and their terrorist state. ending the horrible Iran nuclear arms deal and immediately began the process of re-imposing sanctions on Iran for the protection of world peace. The Obama-Iran deal was probably the worst most illegal and deceitful deal in the history of foreign relations. Obama’s wicked and corrupt deal with Iran permitted the Iranian regime secretive and illegal access to American banks. He also allowed hundreds of Iranian spies into America by the deal, who President Trump now is arresting and deporting. Obama lied about every aspect of the deal, strengthening Iran in their support and promotion of Islamic terrorism throughout the Middle East. Trump has by executive order ended the treacherous deal, and has by sanctions brought the Iranian economy as well as the totalitarian regime to the brink of collapse. He has also dealt a significant blow to the state sponsored terrorism of Iran by killing Kaseem Soleimani their military leader and the general of their Kurds forces a terrorist organization.
- President Trump engaged North Korea with strong and creative diplomacy along with stricter and tougher sanctions on the regime in order push to denuclearize the Korean peninsula. Chairman Kim has agreed to set a path for denuclearization and to begin westernizing North Korea and opening up trade and business.
- President Trump rebuked the hypocrisy of European countries in NATO (Germany, France, etc..) which led to increased NATO funding from these countries in the hundreds of billions of dollars, which they were not paying under previous administrations, thus reducing American dependency and the previous thieving of our nation by NATO countries since the Marshall Plan. He has also cut United Nations funding and influence and has threatened more sanctions on the U.N. for their leftist, anti-American, ungodly anti-Christian policies. It is not surprising that NATO as well as the EU are now under great political and economic duress as a result of the Russian invasion of Ukraine and Russia’s just defense of the Donbas region. NATO is wicked being neo-fascist and an ally of the Liberal Democrats; and President Trump handled them skillfully.
- President Trump promoted the systematic defunding of Planned Parenthood and the Liberal abortion agenda, and their willful and godless murdering of the unborn, as well as their trafficking of baby parts for medical research. The evils and the hypocrisy of Planned Parenthood and the Liberal abortionist agenda continue to be exposed as diabolical and demonic, and one of the greatest evils and crimes of history! Sadly many Republicans, as well as all the Democrats, continue to thwart his defunding efforts.
- President Trump gutted the highly destructive and unaffordable Obama Affordable Care Act in order to replace it with common sense truly affordable health care. He has promoted the reform of the Health care system and the cutting of fraud, corruption, and bad management. This project will take the next two years of office or longer. The pattern of fraud and corruption that was established under the Obama administration was massive and will require a full overhaul of the national health care system and the pharmaceutical companies.
- President Trump passed executive orders and legislation protecting religious rights and freedoms for all Americans against Liberal and Fascist attacks on the First Amendment. Christians, as well as other religious groups, have a greater public influence now under the President’s executive order protecting the First Amendment from abuse and misrepresentation by liberal groups, the IRS, American corporations, and schools. Very simply, President Trump’s policies protect Christians from systemic persecution.
- President Trump during his presidency greatly improved U.S. immigration policy by instituting several effective orders. His “Remain in Mexico” policy has greatly reduced illegal immigration by sending illegals back to Mexico. He increased the deportation of criminal illegal aliens including ms-13 members by strengthening ICE and its ability to combat criminal illegal aliens in the nation as well as instituting a no tolerance policy. He has also sought to oppose and curtail the ungodly influence of sanctuary cities and sanctuary states threatening sanctions on states that do. President Trump is paving the way for immigration reform that is altogether wise, just, and fair protecting American citizens and workers first in opposition to liberal progressive views of immigration.
- President Trump began the work of building a border wall between the US and Mexico, and has increased border security for the nation to better combat drug cartels, illegal immigration, human trafficking, and the many evil products of it including the opiate crisis and the widespread raping of women and children on the border by gangs. He has also made significant political and economic agreements with Latin American countries supporting their economic development and also threatening them with economic sanctions for promoting illegal immigration.
- President Trump during his presidency greatly increased the oil, natural gas, and coal production industries in the nation by his tax and deregulation policies, making the U.S. now the leading exporter in energy throughout the world. Trump’s energy policy, coupled with his trade policy, has revolutionized the exporting of energy products to other nations and will produce in the future a massive increase in national wealth as well as national security, being no longer dependent on foreign oil. And now with the gross incompetence of the Biden administration and gas prices skyrocketing to $6-7 a gallon, Trump’s economic and energy policy has proven to be exceedingly wise and beneficial.
- President Trump ended the illegal, corrupt, and secretive war of the Obama CIA against the Assad regime that tried foolishly to arm Syrian rebels affiliated with Al-Qaeda, costing the U.S. over $1 Billion. When Assad crossed the red line, Obama did nothing to stop him. The Syrian civil war has taken the lives of over 2 million people. And instead of working out a deal with Russia, Obama sanctioned and financed an illegal underground war against Syria by arming Al-Qaeda and other radical Islamic groups. What a traitor! President Trump ended it.
- President Trump greatly increased the respect and the support of Law enforcement throughout the nation by a national policy of “Law and Order,” and by combating lawlessness, drug cartels, inner-city crime, Antifa, the Black Lives movement, and other radical groups; and also by increasing job employment among minority groups. Law enforcement organizations throughout the nation are given greater authority and liberty under Trump to fight crime and to leave off the political correctness that so corrupted the Obama administration that led to the highest level of black on black crime and racial animosity since 1968.
- President Trump also increased Defense funding for national security (to the tune of $2.5 Trillion) and has further promoted greater respect for the United States military and veterans against the establishment as well as the hypocrisy and unpatriotic attitude of the left. The President negated a pay raise for federal bureaucrats who are overpaid, and instead gave it to military personnel who deserve it. He has also pressed the NFL and other organizations to promote respect for the American flag and the Pledge of Allegiance during public observances. President Trump is promoting a greater nationalism in the country in opposition to Obama’s liberal statism and anti-Americanism.
- President Trump signed the Veterans Accountability Act that has reformed the VA and contributed to greater accountability and the reform of veteran’s hospitals throughout the nation, thus ending Obama’s death squads and the widespread abuse of veterans. Under Obama, thousands of veterans were purposely and systematically neglected contributing to the widespread evil of criminally negligent homicides. Instead of financing the VA protecting veterans Obama defunded the VA and instead was financing social welfare programs, illegal aliens’ legal protections, and a $10 Trillion heist that benefited largely his own liberal leftist pagan business and social community. Obama’s diabolical scheme is still being investigated today but has been suppressed by establishment hacks, both Democrat and Republican, who were paid off. President Trump ended the corruption and is working on reforming the VA and veterans care.
- President Trump entirely reformed and revamped American foreign policy as well as the State Department under Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to establish a stronger America through a more Biblical policy of “Peace through Strength,” thereby threatening hostile nations with reprisal and destruction. Trump’s policies have nullified Obama’s previously weak and destructive policies of “leading from behind” which strengthened Russia and China in the world and contributed to widespread war and carnage in the Middle East leaving over 2.5 million dead. President Trump is cleaning up the mess that Obama left upon the world and the Middle East.
- President Trump worked to defend American intellectual property from China’s thievery previously allowed by Obama and his impotent defense policies and the continuation of unfair trade practices. The criminal actions of the communist regime of China that largely began under President Clinton on the early 1990’s were allowed to continue and even increase under Bush and Obama. President Trump is fighting back to bring a fair trade policy between the U.S. and China and to once and for all end the blatant thievery of American companies’ intellectual property.
- President Trump exposed the vast fraud, incompetence, and financial corruption of the Obama administration, the DNC, the federal bureaucracy, the Washington establishment, and has further cut off much of the fraud and corruption of both Democrat and Republican politicians and Lobbyists in Washington who used their office for financial gain. Trump is cleaning the swamp and beginning to reform all federal agencies, by investigating and prosecuting the vast corruption of Washington bureaucrats. This is an ongoing work under the leadership of Attorney General Barr and includes the investigation of the corruption of Joe Biden and his son Hunter and the Burisma scandal in Ukraine.
- President Trump further exposed the Liberal agenda and political bias of the Fake News Media (CNN, MSNBC, NY Times, etc…) as well as their outrageous deceit and hypocrisy, along with all their sexual immorality, rape scandals, and cover-ups. The #Me-Too movement was given its rise and power by the Trump administration! How ironic and magnificent! He has further sparked the criminal prosecution of the Clinton/Weinstein rape culture in America and their detestable treatment of women as well as the criminal and wicked conduct of Jeff Epstein. President Trump is more than any statesman or President before exposing the diabolical evil of the Fake News media and fighting against their wicked and immoral bias and propaganda!
- President Trump cracked down on and eliminated Obama’s pro-communist policies towards Cuba, Venezuela, and other dangerous Socialist-totalitarian regimes in Latin America and Africa while providing support for pro-American countries that protect the rights and freedoms of their citizens.
- President Trump repealed many of the liberal, totalitarian, and statist Net-Neutrality rules instituted by Obama on the Internet, bringing back greater personal freedom to the Web and less government regulations; while at the same cracking down on those who use the Web for Islamic terrorism, human trafficking, sex-slavery, child-pornography, and other diabolical forms of evil.
- President Trump, by his no-tolerance policy toward illegal immigration, greatly reduced the widespread murder, rape, and human trafficking committed by drug cartels previously tolerated by the Obama administration. Thousands of people died trying to cross into America under the Obama administration, and the Liberals News media covered it all up. And presently under Trump’s policies, over 60% of the children separated from their families, are in fact being rescued from the hands of criminals looking for a way into the U.S. The Liberal media like CNN and MSNBC are not only Fake News, but accessories to human trafficking, murder, rape, and the tragic slaughter of thousands of Latinos.
- President Trump cracked down on and putting on notice for further punishment all Islamic countries (including Iran, Syria, and Turkey) that are in any way providing support for terrorist groups like Hamas, Hezbollah, Al-Qaeda, ISIS, and other groups; thus suppressing the threat of terrorism and war in the Middle East, working with Russia to end the Syrian civil war, and providing a way for Syrian refugees to return their country.
- President Trump exposed the massive corruption, sexual immorality, and predatory behavior of the Roman Catholic Church and its priests in America and throughout the world, as well as the sinister and ungodly cover-up by the Pope and Cardinals in Rome and their outrageous religious hypocrisy. God willing, this will bring many Roman Catholics to rethink their religious doctrine and commitments and so bring them to true repentance and saving faith in Jesus Christ and leave their apostate institutions.
- President Trump exposed the liberal hypocrisy, propagandist behavior, and anti-conservative policies of American tech companies such as Google, Facebook, Twitter, and Amazon that have systematically rigged search results, falsify viruses on websites, and universally suppress and subvert the free speech of Christian and conservative websites and information. And he is now seeking to reform them by either regulation or massive punishments, fines, and other means.
- President Trump brought together during his presidency one of the most conservative, efficient, Christian-values oriented pro-American Republican administrations in the history of the nation. His cabinet appointments, judicial appointments, and other appointments have proven to be the most effective team of leaders in decades. Vice President Pence, Secretary of State Pompeo, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, Attorney General Bill Barr, senior-advisor Stephen Miller, personal advisor Kelly-Anne Conway, Planning advisor Jared Kushner, Legal advisor Jay Sekulow, and many others. While there were many in his administration who opposed his agenda, and many in the deep state that obstructed his policies, President Trump had more policy victories in his 4 years than any other Republican before him in the last 50 years.
- President Trump moreover brokered peace treaties (the Abraham accords) between Israel and several Middle East Arab nations including the UAE, Bahrain, and likely several others in the future. He has also brokered a peace deal between Serbia and Kosovo. For these, he was rightly nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, an honor he should have won if it were not for the liberal atheist views of those on the committee.
- President Trump managed the corona-virus pandemic at first with admirable wisdom closing the country down early to travel from China and Europe saving thousands of lives in the process; and balanced the need for an open and working economy with guarded precautions in regard to slowing the pandemic in opposition to the incompetence and statist policies of Democrat governors who insist on completely shutting down the economy which would destroy the nation. He has also brought the federal government and the best pharmaceutical and research companies together to work on therapies for the disease. The greatest mistake of his presidency though certainly lies in the fact of giving Anthony Fauci and the CDC authority over the federal response to the pandemic that included useless and unscientific mask mandates as well as the various corrupt pharmaceutical companies (including Pfizer) authorization to promote a highly dangerous and destructive vaccine. This was a terrible blot at the end of his presidency that he now regrets!
- President Trump by strange providence, and by his bold and uncompromising leadership, produced the incredibly hilarious psychological delusions of many Liberals with their “Trump Derangement Syndrome.” Trump’s bold and courageous conservative policies as well as his constant use of Twitter promoting his pro-American nationalism, exposing the hypocrisy and political correctness of the Liberal media and the establishment has put thousands of Liberals into a psychological meltdown that has become a truly historical spectacle. And they don’t even recognize how utterly perverse, deceitful, diabolical, and demonic their problem has become. It is in some ways similar to the demons and their chaotic reaction to Jesus public ministry and His many miracles of grace. The Democrat party has now more than ever before been exposed as the party of Atheists and anti-Christian devils who are working to destroy America and undermine in every way possible the Church and kingdom of Jesus Christ and the faithful preaching of the Gospel as well as the law, order, prosperity, and liberty of the nation.
- President Trump exposed the vast corruption of the Biden family and the entire Democrat party and their illegal financial schemes with foreign nations. It is important to remember that the Democrat party tried to impeach President Trump based on false and slanderous charges because he was exposing the corruption of the Biden’s in Ukraine and several other counties. It has now been publicly revealed what a crooked politician, a morally depraved father, and an outright traitor to the nation Joe Biden has been for the last 16-20 years lining his pockets by fraud, extortion, and criminal acts of thievery with foreign nations at the expense of American businesses and American jobs.
- The Biden administration’s 2 years in office has further proven the importance of President Trump’s leadership in almost every area of national life. The Biden administration is even worse that President Trump warned the nation. It is incompetent, morally depraved, and demonic in every way; and should be impeached and overthrown!
There are hundreds of other accomplishments related to each of these top 40 listed that have improved the lives of Americans as well as all other people in the world. He has even improved the lives, and in some instances even saved the lives, of the very Liberals who hate and slander him.
*Augustine was absolutely right when he said, “It is no compromise with evil to support a good man over one who is full of evil, even when that good man may be tainted by some evil. For the good in that one man may destroy a great deal of evil for the glory of God, at the same time that he promotes a whole lot of good.”
I knew beforehand that Donald Trump would be an Imperial President with strong conservative policies from the beginning (notwithstanding his character flaws and rhetoric, and that he would promote a strong pro-American, pro-Christian nationalism. I supported him from the beginning even in the Republican primary, because Trump’s fighting spirit and courage against the Liberal media and Washington corruption was exactly what the nation needed! In order to fight the demonic agenda of the Democrat party and the godless liberal fake news media, we needed a man with the experience, the wisdom, the courage, and the personal pride like Donald J, Trump. The fact is, President Trump is very much in personality like Constantine the Great, the first Christian Emperor or Justinian the Restorer of the Christian Empire of Rome and Byzantium in the 16th century.
President Trump’s revolutionary accomplishments in the 4 years of his administration are even more remarkable and heroic when you contrast them with the manifold evils, scandals, and corruption of the present Biden administration; as well as the 8 infamous years of the Obama administration which include: the GSA; the IRS; the DOJ, including Fast and Furious and the fake Russian collusion story; Benghazi and the stupid overthrow of Kaddafi; the perverse Iran nuclear deal; the compromise with ISIS that killed hundreds of thousands (called by Obama the JV); the Syrian civil war (that killed 2 million); the treacherous Bowe Bergdahl deal that let the Taliban Five to go free and a traitor to live; the massive Obama Care lie that gutted the economy and destroyed the health care system; Obama’s pharmaceutical policy that contributed to the deaths of over 500,000 Americans by overdose; Illegal immigration that costs $150 billion each year (over $1.5 Trillion during his administration); the extra $10 Trillion in debt Obama stole from the American people to pay for his Liberal programs (with nothing to show for it); the Jeffrey Epstein trafficking syndicate and the Harvey Weinstein rape culture knowingly allowed to persist under his watch; his corrupt anti-American trade policies; Clapper’s Spy-gate; Obama’s attempt to sabotage the election of Netanyahu (illegal campaign corruption); the VA scandal and the thousands of veterans killed from negligent homicide under his administration; the vast Clinton Foundation corruption scheme including the Uranium One deal, the Haiti heist (It is estimated that the Clinton’s cheated Haiti and the American people of hundreds of millions over a 10 year period); the cover-up and exoneration of crooked Hillary for her criminal conduct and email scam that broke national security laws; Hillary’s $84 million campaign finance fraud; the fabricated collusion story invented by the Obama DOJ and FBI (where we now see numerous Obama hacks fired and now under investigation for criminal prosecution (Comey, Strzok, Ohr, McCabe, Yates, Lynch, Brennan, Clapper, etc…); the vast corruption of the Biden family and the entire Democrat party. It is important to remember that the Democrat party tried to impeach President Trump based on false and slanderous charges because he was exposing the corruption of the Biden’s in Ukraine and several other counties. It has now been publicly revealed what a crooked, diabolically evil, and traitor to the nation Joe Biden has been for the last 10-15 years lining his pockets by fraud, extortion, and criminal acts with foreign nations at the expense of American businesses and American jobs.
The Obama administration was a world of fraud, corruption, demonic lies, and socialist anti-American policies that created for 8 years national disgrace and ruin, government tyranny, world chaos, global terrorism, widespread murder, human trafficking, the spread of drug cartels and inner-city violence, over 500,000 deaths from opiate overdose, a perverse and wicked entertainment culture, and the most corrupt forms of sexual debauchery, human trafficking, and legalized rape promoted by the likes of Clinton/Weinstein/Epstein…..as well as apostasy and spiritual declension in the church.
And so, the 4 years of the Trump administration (2016-2020) minus the debacle of some aspects of his handling the pandemic has proven to be a map and guidepost for the further reformation of our national government.
Making America Great: To be sure, there is still a lot more that needs to accomplish to make America great again. And whether President Trump is able and willing to do so in 2024 is a big question. To make America great again, America needs to be Christian again, and Protestant and Reformed again. For America to be truly great again, the manifold evils and abominations of the nation would have to be suppressed and rooted out: atheism, secularism, Liberalism, feminism, Evolutionary paganism, Roman Catholic idolatry, cults and deviant forms of Christianity, the holocaust of abortion, the wickedness and profanity of modern entertainment, the widespread profanation of the Lord’s Day, the culture of pornography, gambling, sex-trafficking, and a hundred other evils that have sprung up in the 20th century as a result of the nation’s apostasy from God and the truth. Without God-sent revival and Biblical reformation, America will never be truly great again!
Remember these several observations of great theologians of the past and how they explain the great accomplishments of President Trump; because what President Trump has done is to provide a foundation and road-map for the further reformation of American government and society.
*John Witherspoon said, “The Christian Religion is the bulwark to true government and magistracy.”
*Martin Luther said, “When no one pleads for truth and reformation, the people are all led to vice and corruption. But when the wicked are exposed by those valiant for the truth, they will be swiftly brought down in judgment.”
*Huldreich Zwingli said, “A good magistrate is one who executes justice and righteousness by punishing criminals, frauds, murderers, and reprobates who defy God and His law.”
*John Calvin said, “Civil government has its appointed end, so long as we live among men, to cherish and protect the outward worship of God, to defend sound doctrine and Christian piety and the position of the Church, to adjust our life to the society of men, to form our social behavior to civil righteousness, to reconcile us with one another, and to promote general peace and tranquility. In short, it provides that a public manifestation of religion may exist among Christians and that humanity be maintained among men.”
Lessons to Learn: What are some of the many lessons that we are to learn from this?
- We should be thankful to God for President Trump and his administration. Psalm 9:1; 33:12; Phil.4:6-7; 1 Tim.4:4-5; 1 Pet.2:17.
- We should pray for President Trump, his family, and the administration, and for the continuation of their work in governing the nation and reforming the government. Exo.18:21; 2 Chron.7:14; Ezra 7:25, 8:21-23; 1 Tim.2:1-2; Col.1:9-13.
- We should support President Trump and his administration in the work of reforming the national government and rooting out corruption in Washington and destroying the Liberal agenda of the previous Obama administration. 2 Chron.29-31; Ps.2; Ps.72; Rom.13; Titus 3:1.
- We should defend with courage and humility President Trump’s many accomplishments when given the opportunity outside of the work environment; against the Liberal Fake News media, unbelievers in the world perverted by the godless political ideology of the Liberal Left, and those who wickedly oppose or slander the goodness of God manifested in the many good works of the Trump administration.
And this we should do, especially when we have opportunity to expose sin and idolatry, exalt the name of Jesus Christ, and share the Gospel with those who are subverted by false religion and a demonic political ideology. 2 Cor.10:5; Eph.5:11; 2 Tim.4:2; 1 Pet.3:15.
The fact is, to be unthankful for and derisive of President’s Trumps’ many accomplishments as President (and for God’s wonderful providence in this work of civil reformation) shows an irrational, perverse, unbelieving, and reprobate mind that is ensnared by a twisted political and religious ideology as well as an immoral psychology. TRUMP DERANGEMENT SYNDROME! IT IS NOTHING LESS THAN DEMONIC!
The Way to Reformation: What President Trump has done for the nation is of great value when applied to the ongoing need for Reformation. President Trump is certainly not the Savior of the world, but he may very well be the restorer of the American Republic, and of justice and liberty in the nation. What President Trump has done for the nation for justice, liberty, and the economy should be looked upon also as a platform for further reformation.
- We should also seek to bring revival and reformation to the church by our prayers, our repentance, our taking up the cross, and our learning how God works through courageous leadership to bring reformation not just in civil government and national politics; but also and more importantly in the Church and the Christian life. Everything that President Trump has done for the nation, the economy, the city government in Washington, national security, international diplomacy, rooting out corruption, and making America Great Again should be applied spiritually to the Church to bring reformation to the Church again. What Trump has done for the nation should be sought after for the Church! Joshua 24:14-24; 1 Samuel 7:3; Acts 2:40-47; Rom.12:1-2; Rev.3:14-22.
- We need to pray that God would by His grace remedy the widespread apostasy and corruption of Evangelical and Reformed churches on account of their accommodation to the Obama administration and the cultural idolatry and false religion that it promoted in the world; ungodly music, profane entertainment, a culture of feminism and paganism, political correctness, and widespread sexual immorality. Only true repentance, God-sent revival, and Biblical reformation can remedy the apostasy and spiritual downgrade of the Church that is a direct result of the Obama administration and the decades of establishment hypocrisy that is now widespread in churches, denominations, and seminaries. 2 Chron. 7:14; Isa.55:6-7; 1 Cor.10:1-22; Jude.
- It is now up to pastors, church officers, Christians, and Christian leaders alike to recover what was lost during the Obama years: to repent of their sin and idolatry, to renew their commitment to Christ and His word, to fear God and keep His commandments, to reform the church of abuses, to overthrow false worship in the church, to root out false guides and false teachers not called by Christ to preach or govern the church, to root out of the church the sinful and irreverent attitudes people have toward the faithful preaching of the Word, sound doctrine, and godly reformation. Matthew 7:13-26; Acts 20:26-32; 2 Tim.4:1-5; Titus 1-3; Rev.3:14-22!
The fact is, Evangelical and Reformed churches are sadly often led and governed today by Establishment compromisers, just like the Washington establishment, who have entrenched themselves into Churches and denominations, who are not godly preachers, but false guides and charlatans who promote false doctrine and preach a theology of cheap grace that brings ruin upon the Church and Christian families. At the present time, Christians today are by and large too stupid, too ignorant, and utterly self-deceived not to see that Evangelical and Reformed denominations are increasingly Liberal/Neo-Orthodox, and compromising; and therefore need a complete reformation of leadership, doctrine, and practice, just as the Federal government. Modern pastors are in many ways effeminate, compromising, shallow, and Antinomian. And they do not have the courage to bring about reformation. Pastors today by and large do not preach or teach anything like the Apostles, the Reformers, or the Puritans; but speak smooth things to an evil generation and compromise with the wicked generation around them, just like the Republican establishment did with Obama and the Liberals.
And so, tragically while President Trump did a great work in reforming many aspects of the civil government and rooting out corruption in Washington, Christians are sadly not at all interested at present in reforming the Church, rooting out sin and idolatry, or selfish and ungodly preachers from the ministry. They are not interested in taking up the cross and following faithful and godly preachers who are committed to Biblical reformation in their doctrine, their life, and their convictions. Christians by and large desire national reformation in politics, (praise God for that, but that is only temporary) but not a reformation in the church or in the Christian life. They are on the road to spiritual apostasy!
If the church and Christians do not repent, I am confident (from the clear testimony of Scripture regarding God’s providence and His judgments), that after President Trump, God may allow a worse scourge of idolatry, wickedness, corruption, and evil on the nation than ever before, even worse than Obama or crooked Hillary Clinton; and there will be greater apostasy in the Church. And for this reason, there will be a pouring out of God’s wrath on the churches and on the nation like never before! Sadly these words are coming true even now in 2022 during the Biden administration as I edit this paper. The Election fraud of 2020 and just 2 years of Biden has brought the nation to the very bring of political and economic collapse, and there is greater apostasy and spiritual downgrade in the church than before.
President Trump’s accomplishments in four years (2016-2020) are a wonderful testimony of God’s goodness and mercy to the church and to the nation; but Christians had better repent of their sin and idolatry, humble themselves before God, and follow Christ in obedience to Christ’s word, or a worse thing will happen than Obama!
*1 Peter 4:17 “Judgment begins at the house of God.”
*Lev.26:23-25. “And if by these things you are not reformed by Me but walk contrary to Me, then I also will walk contrary to you, and I will punish you yet seven times for your sins. And I will bring a sword against you that will execute the vengeance of the covenant.”
*2 Chron. 7:14. “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
*Hosea 4:1-6. “Hear the word of the Lord, you children of Israel, for the Lord brings a charge against the inhabitants of the land: “There is no truth or mercy or knowledge of God in the land. By swearing and lying, killing and stealing and committing adultery, they break all restraint, with bloodshed upon bloodshed. Therefore the land will mourn; and everyone who dwells there will waste away with the beasts of the field and the birds of the air; even the fish of the sea will be taken away. Now let no man contend, or rebuke another; for your people are like those who contend with the priest. Therefore you shall stumble in the day; The prophet also shall stumble with you in the night, And I will destroy your mother. My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.”
*2 Tim.4:1-5, “I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.”
*1 Tim.5:20-22. “Those who are sinning rebuke in the presence of all, that the rest also may fear. I charge you before God and the Lord Jesus Christ and the elect angels that you observe these things without prejudice, doing nothing with partiality. Do not lay hands on anyone hastily, nor share in other people’s sins; keep yourself pure.”
*Heb.12:5-7. “My son; do not despise the chastening of the Lord, nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him; for whom the Lord loves He chastens, and scourges every son whom He receives. If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons.”
*Rev.3:19-21. “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come to him and dine with him, and he with Me. To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.”
*William Tyndale said, “A sincere love of Christ and the truth always leads to the pursuit of reformation.”
*Matthew Henry said, “God’s design for instructing His people and reforming them by His word is through the faithful preaching of the Gospel.”
*John Wycliffe said, “The pastoral office must be amended and reformed by the word of Christ or nothing else in the Church or in its members can or ever will be.”
*John Knox said, “For the church to be reformed by the word of God, pastors must themselves be reformed and committed to the Word of God in opposition to idolatry, false doctrine, and the foolish whims of misguided people.”
*John Calvin said, “God’s worship is most dear to Him. And He wants it to be kept holy and true to His word; for anything else, no matter how clever it may seem to be, is nothing but idolatry and an abomination in His sight.”
*Thomas Cartwright said, “Wherever there are idolatry and false religion in the churches, a nation and people will be brought to ruin and corruption. To reform the people, there must be first a reformation in the churches and a return to the faithful preaching of Christ’s holy Gospel, the diligent teaching of God’s commandments, as well as godly rebuke and exhortation.”
