He's also a rude crude dude and a fairly astute politician based on the midterms.
As I said elsewhere, Trump is the bratty obnoxious kid the redneck parents bring to the nice restaurant to spite the patrons. He's the ugly American "coal roller" demagogue. It was and is about spite, and for the Party, the courts.
Those are the Republican values that rise to the top of this ethical cesspool after all is said and done.

A good justification for agnosticism.

Actually, if true, I'd call "God wanted Trump as President" a good justification for Satanism (if I believed in either of them).

Nearly half of Republicans think God wanted Trump to be president...More than half of white evangelical Protestants ó 55 percent ó said that God endorsed Trump. Only 3 in 10 evangelicals said categorically that they didnít think Trump had Godís explicit support in the election.

If Evangelicals think that Trump is divinely inspired, I suppose that helps explain why his most devout supporters will never abandon him. Crazy shit.

Nothing crazy here. Trump reinforced his biblical image by recognizing Jerusalem.

This really was mostly a meaningless step by Trump. For all practical purposes, the embassy remains in Tel Aviv. Meanwhile, the "embassy" in Jerusalem (former consulate) doesn't function as an embassy because it doesn't yet meet the physical and signals security requirements of an embassy (as the former embassy in Tel Aviv does.). Accordingly, nearly all of our diplomatic staff remain in Tel Aviv.

I don't think the Bible has a single word in it about the location of the US Embassy in Judea.
