    Trump is really irreligious person, definitely not a christian man. He divorced many many times, lust a lot, he barely goes to church, has a loud and insulting mouth, he supports LGBT, he loves Israel, he has many jewish relatives, went to the wailing wall in Jerusalem, and he ignores the christian people in the middle east just to name a few. In fact almost all the modern US Presidents are mostly irreligious. Had any US Politician really be christian they wouldn't support so much war and support doing business with backwards nations like Saudi Arabia.

    Huh? He never stated he was christian. Also he doesn't support LGBT, hence the tran ban in the military. He actually speaks about the middle easy a few times.

    As for Saudi, most presidents support them because of one world. Oil. If not for their oil the US wouldn't care really. Though the US does support Israel too. For obvious reasons. Truth is no politcian, at least in recent decades has really been focused on "chrsitian views". Politics is a dirty game and no one is clean. Clinton made things worse in areas regarding christian rights. Bush made things worse in terms of us wasting money in Iraq. Obama made race relations worse. And Trump has made most americans even more toxic towards each other. Whoever wins next (if its not Trump) will just make things tip to the boiling point.

    I don't believe there would be a civil war again, but I do believe the country is super divided as it is and things will be taken to a darker level with the next president.

    Oh good grief...

    Yes, as hard to believe as it is, he did..

    Wrong again...would you like a video of him speaking in front of the rainbow banner...?

    The ban was to earn political support, nothing more...

    Is that anywhere near the Big Easy...?

    I hope his words are genuine, but in any case Trump seems to be changing from the man I couldn't vote for to someone I might vote for. I know people hate him and they will scoff at that, but he seems to be progressing into a better person, it may be slowly, but it's pace is still remarkable given how much pressure is upon him.

    Teleprompter Trump does alright here.

    I'm sure Twitter Trump will say something horrible, stupid, or horribly stupid soon enough.

    He did support LGBT rights before he started pretending to be a Republican in order to appease his conservative base. He also broke his campaign promises to preserve and protect LGBT rights.

    (1) The following is what he said about LGBT rights before he campaigned for the presidency.

    (2) The following is his presidential campaign promises to protect the rights of LGBT Americans.

    "Thank you to the LGBT community! I will fight for you while Hillary brings in more people that will threaten your freedoms and beliefs," he wrote in a June 14, 2016, tweet.

    Eh, doesn't mean much to me. People acting like he's horrible as opposed to past pr3esidents who are no better. His lowest rating has still put him higher than most presidents who have had far lower ratings. Including Obama, Bush and Clinton.

    Interesting understatement. He personifies all seven deadly sins... often simultaneously.

    Apparently two Corinthians says "thou shalt not admit adultery."

    His followers love that second part, and seek to imitate it.

    Whoa. Full stop here.

    since when?

    Donald may have pandered to the LGBT vote when he campaigned, but he turned on them in a heartbeat to placate his Evangelical base.

    Loudly and publicly. Verily, he has his reward.

    So did King Herod. Hardly a ringing endorsement.

    How touristy.

    I'm all fairness, He ignored most people who aren't right in front of him... Attention span isn't one of his strengths.

    A notable exception being Jimmy Carter.

    Donald Trump doesn't believe adultery is a sin.

    Article excerpt: Donald Trump in 1990: Adultery is Not a Sin

    “Do you think adultery is a sin?” Trump was asked in the February issue.

    “Very good question,” he responded. According to the report at the time, Trump paused and then said: “I don’t think it’s a sin but I don’t think it should be done.”

    The reporters pressed: “Would you do it?” After which, Trump coyly responded “I’ll let you guess.”

    He claimed the IRS was auditing him because he's such a 'strong Christian'.

    That's sort of true.

    Agreed. It's never going to get any better. At least not in my lifetime.

    I'm not sure Trump care either way about gay people. If he can use them to get votes . Then he will . He cares about making his wallet bigger. And conservatives are the people. He need to kiss up to. To make that happen.

    Just his way to get their votes. But he's done nothing but betray them. Since he got in office. So he can kiss up to the Coservatives.

    What I am saying is his actions like going to the Wailing Wall or supporting Israel plus many of his relatives are jews or married to one, that it just kind of takes away from his christian faith. I am not saying jews run the world or if you come from a jewish family then you are a jew. I am saying his actions of supporting Israel so much, a jewish majority nation, plus the amount of jewish relatives he has just kind of takes away his christian faith.
