What's your thoughts on Trump?

What's your thoughts on Trump?
I'm usually very busy, so I very rarely find the time to post on this forum nowadays.

I was shocked when I found out that Trump became the President-elect - you know, when USA was supposed to be some sort of example of democracy to other countries, and the President an example even more so. But even more shocked I was to see that there are many people (even outside USA) who see Trump as a hero who came to save the world. Smth like this video portrays. It's even more shocking when I see atheists who support Trump - though Trump isn't a particularly religious guy, I tend to associate him with conservative christians. Same weird as when I see atheist / non-religious homophobes.

So I'm curious, espacially about american atheists, how do you see Trump? And what categories of people do you see to be more mesmerised by Trump? mesmerised = seeing him like a savior who battles the evil forces of Soros and his like in the name of humanity - kind-of-thing.

When you consider why 'democracy' was a dirty word in the mouths of the Founders, I'd say that this election was a perfect example of it.

My thought is mainly that there are too many Trump threads...

But concerning atheist supporters of his, that goes to show - and that's a point that is debated frequently around here - that atheism per se isn't really something that tells you much about a person, how they think and whether you have anything in common with them.
The fool hath said in his heart, There is a God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

Yeah, like Alex said. Atheism is beside the point but I detest Trump and what he represents. Sad that he can be elected in this country, but then I never thought we were a shining light upon any hill.
Belief .. is the insistence that the truth is what one would .. wish it to be. The believer will open his mind to the truth on the condition that it fits in with his preconceived ideas and wishes. 


Faith, on the other hand, is an unreserved opening of the mind to the truth, whatever it may turn out to be.

The US has lost the high ground. I can no longer support its place as leader of the free world.
Opinions are like arseholes.
Once somethings firmly in there its very hard to dislodge.
