What’s the Argument for Supporting Trump?

I have written  many posts on why I don’t see Donald J. Trump as our potential  president. You can view those on my site, but they are too many to list. But my point now is what is the argument for continual support of Donald Trump, given his recent statement on the Central Park Five, although, the evidence exonerated the five teenage boys who are now men after having served up to 13 years for a crime they did not commit, and television’s Access Hollywood program video tape of the lewd comments?

How can one continue to support him? What’s the argument? Is it that he is the sure fire way to reshape the Supreme Court? Can he be trusted to do that? What gives the confidence that he would in fact do so?

Is it because of his business acumen that one believes he can transfer those same skills to become the leader of the free world? What has he done as a businessman that supports that, the ability to use the bankruptcy laws and the tax laws to crawl out from misfortune? Hasn’t he had multiple business failures, Trump University, Trump steaks, Trump water, Trump casinos, Trump vodka, Trump Airlines? What about that points to success?

What about the vendors he leaves in the dust without paying? Isn’t integrity a key ingredient for someone who wishes to be the president?

Are any perfect? No. Mr. Trump admits he never claimed to be perfect it in his forced apology to “this more than a decade-old video” that he refers to as a distraction. Of course it is only my opinion that I believe his apology was forced. When one is sincere in apologizing, they only recognize their wrong, and not point out the wrong of others. Remorse usually accompanies the apology.

Again, this is not a post recommending any other candidate. I’ve made that clear in other posts. I am just really disappointed. Really disappointed.

The Bible says:

…For there is no power but of God; the powers that be are ordained of God. Romans 13:1b

But God is the judge; he putteth down one, and setteth up another. Psalm 75:7

God’s Word speaks for itself.

I don’t know what’s going to happen. Although, Mr. Trump defiantly says that he won’t quit, I believe that he will, but only God knows.
