During this election cycle, I have noticed opponents taking quotes out of context more than any other cycle. For example, President Trump and his surrogates continue to quote Joe Biden as saying he was going to ban fracking. What I heard Joe say was he was going to ban fracking on public lands. Leaving out that phrase gives a different meaning to the sentence.
Also, the press and Democratic surrogates continually quote the President as saying “There are Good People on both sides” to support their argument that he is a white supremacist. They leave out the subsequent sentences where he condemns white supremacist like and including the KKK.
If one is fair and look at the Trump Administration’s accomplishments rather than dissecting every sentence for possible phrases that show a negative picture of them, one may have to admit his actions reflect something different from what the press wants their readers to believe.
There are some questions that I would like the reader to consider
|If President Trump is||Why did he|
|Racist||Sue a Florida county to|
Remove a law restricting
Blacks from being permitted
to enter clubs?
Appoint a black person to
Hold a Cabinet Position?
Agree to the “Laying on of
Hands” Christian Ceremony
performed by Black Ministers?
Push actions that freed
many black prisoners put in
prison by laws written by
|Misogynist||Appoint the first woman to|
Head up a major construction
Appoint a woman to head up
his campaign team (2016)?
Appoint two women as press
|Islamophobic||As the first four visits, go to |
Spend the effort to create
a lasting peace with 3 Islamic
nations and Israel?
|Anti-immigration||Push for changes that make |
our laws more value oriented
than open to all comers like
gangs and drug dealers?
If words are the primary criteria for judging a person would a person “still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest and asked him for letters to the synagogues at Damascus, so that if he found any belonging to the Way, men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem” be acceptable?
Most of you will recognize this man as Saul, who God used to preach the Gospel of Love and wrote much of what is in our Bible today. No, I’m not suggesting that Donald Trump even compares to Paul. What I am suggesting is that we do not know God’s purpose for Donald Trump and, as with Paul, we should consider his contributions.
