Lance Wallnau called President Donald Trump — “God’s Chaos Candidate.” An apropos title, right?
Viewing Trump’s presidency at this point in time, we see an impeached President, one accused of colluding with the Russians, the overseer of the largest unemployment figures and the greatest GNP drop since the Great Depression, a man hated by the news media, Hollywood and at least 40% of the population, a leader scorned by most of the world’s leaders, a supposed failure in handling America’s response to Covid-19 and who knows what else!
Not only that, Trump is a bombastic tweeter who attacks his foes with disdain and little mercy.
There has never been a President like Trump before…or has there?
When President Harry Truman gave a rousing speech during the presidential election of 1948, a supporter in the crowd shouted, “Give’em Hell, Harry!”
“I don’t give them Hell,” Truman said. “I just tell the truth about them, and they think it’s Hell.”
From that time forward in his reelection bid, Truman was known as “Give’em Hell Harry.”
Sadly, Truman’s presidency was riddled by scandals, corruption, investigations, vulgar remarks, hatred by the media and a threat via a letter against a Washington Post critic:
Dec. 6, 1950
I’ve just read your lousy review of Margaret’s concert. I’ve come to the conclusion that you are an “eight ulcer man on four ulcer pay.”
It seems to me that you are a frustrated old man who wishes he could have been successful. When you write such poppy-cock as was in the back section of the paper you work for it shows conclusively that you’re off the beam and at least four of your ulcers are at work.
Some day I hope to meet you. When that happens you’ll need a new nose, a lot of beefsteak for black eyes, and perhaps a supporter below!
Pegler, a gutter snipe, is a gentleman alongside you. I hope you’ll accept that statement as a worse insult than a reflection on your ancestry.
Don’t you think President Truman might have used Twitter against his foes? I do.
But both Truman and Trump had one thing in common: Israel.
At eleven minutes after midnight on May 14, 1948, the very day Israel declared itself a nation, President Harry S. Truman recognized Israel as a sovereign nation. America was the first nation to do so.
On December 6, 2017, President Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Then, the U.S. Embassy was moved to Jerusalem in May, 2018. Plus, Trump reversed decades of U.S. policy by recognizing Israel’s annexation of the Golan Heights. All of these were firsts!
No other presidents or world leaders have stuck their necks out for Israel like Truman and Trump did during their presidencies.
And I will bless those who bless you [Israel], and the one who curses you [Israel] I will curse. (Genesis 12:3)
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May they prosper who love you.” (Psalm 122:6)
Since I believe God honors His Word, I believe President Trump will be reelected for a second term in November.
Now, does this mean that I think Trump’s second four years in office will be easier than his first four years? No, absolutely not.
I believe Trump will win the presidency, but that the Republicans will lose both the Senate and the House in November.
Give’em Hell Donald!
