Is Donald Trump the Antichrist?

Trump

U.S. President Donald Trump dominates media coverage in the United States and attracts media attention throughout the world. He is an unusual figure in American Politics because he comes from outside of the world of politics and conducts himself in a manner that many American politicians and political commentators are not accustomed to. He is also a polarizing figure with many staunch supporters and many staunch opponents, including within the Republican Party.

I have received many comments and questions from people who wonder whether Donald Trump is the Antichrist. I will address whether Donald Trump is the Antichrist in this article.

Observations About Trump & the Antichrist

First, I want to make it clear that I will try my best to analyze Trump as neutrally as I can. I may have some positive or some negative things to say about Trump, but please understand that I do this as an analyst rather than someone who is a Trump opponent or is a Trump supporter. I will proceed by stating some observations about Trump and compare these observations with many people’s expectation of the Antichrist.

Pride & Ego

Trump is a very prideful man, to say the least. He likes to boast about himself and rarely admits when he has made a mistake publicly. Meanwhile, Daniel 11:36 and Daniel 8:25 are two Bible verses that suggest the Antichrist will have an immense ego:

“And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.” (Daniel 11:36)

“And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.” (Daniel 8:25)

Middle East Peace Negotiator

Trump is a negotiator who emphasizes the importance of being a good negotiator when talking about foreign policy. He has mentioned on occasion that he would like to try to negotiate the most difficult deal of them all: the Middle East peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians. Meanwhile, many expect Antichrist to help confirm a Middle East peace deal-the “covenant with many” in Daniel 9:27:

“And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.” (Daniel 9:27)

Charismatic Leader

Trump is a skilled speaker. He is adept at speaking publicly without the reliance of a teleprompter and speaks well when he does have a teleprompter to help guide his words. Some skeptics question the substance of what Trump says, but he is able to endear himself to a significant number of Americans with what he says and the style that he says it. Meanwhile, many people expect Antichrist to be a demagogue who uses his charisma to attract people to his side as he accumulates power.

Based on these statements, you might conclude that I think Donald Trump is the Antichrist. However, I strongly believe that Donald Trump is not the Antichrist. Here are several reasons why:

Super Popular vs Super Polarizing

Revelation 6:1-2 depicts Antichrist as a rider on a white horse, which indicates he could be so popular that he will be viewed as a messianic figure by the world:

“(1) And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. (2) And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.” (Revelation 6:1-2)

Trump is the farthest thing from being viewed as a messianic figure by the world. In fact, Trump is an extremely polarizing figure. Many people dislike Trump and will go to great lengths to protest against him and to resist him. Some of Trump’s opponents do not view him as the world’s savior but as one of the world’s biggest problems. Trump will never command the admiration of the world like the Antichrist will.

The Desire of Women

Daniel 11 indicates that the Antichrist will not be someone who will desire women in his life:

“Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.” (Daniel 11:37)

Trump has been married multiple times and is currently married to his wife Melania (with whom they have a son named Barron).

The Peak of Arrogance

The Antichrist will sit in a temple in Jerusalem someday and demand that the world worship him like God.

(3) Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; (4) Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4)

Trump is a very prideful man, but does anyone seriously think that he is so arrogant that he would demand the world to worship him and order the deaths of anyone who refuses to worship him? Trump sometimes will ridicule a vocal critic of his but I doubt he is a man who would order the execution of a vocal opponent. If you watch Trump’s rallies you will notice that he will occasionally call for the ejection of vocal opponents but at the same time tell the officials ejecting them to not harm them.

A Different Level of Charisma

Trump is a skilled speaker, but he is not close to being as charismatic as the Antichrist will be. As I’ve stated previously, I imagine Antichrist to be even more charismatic than Adolf Hitler, who was able to hypnotize an entire nation with his demonic charisma. I’ve watched footage of Hitler speak and I’ve watched Trump speak many times and the comparison is not even close. Trump does not possess the charisma that Hitler possessed and the charisma that Antichrist will possess.

The Ultimate Globalist

Antichrist will seek to dominate the world at an economic, political, and religious level. In this sense, the Antichrist will be the ultimate globalist. In contrast, Trump is not a big supporter of globalism. In fact, Trump said in a foreign policy speech:

“No country has ever prospered that failed to put its own interests first. Both our friends and our enemies put their countries above ours and we, while being fair to them, must start doing the same.

We will no longer surrender this country, or its people, to the false song of globalism.

The nation-state remains the true foundation for happiness and harmony. I am skeptical of international unions that tie us up and bring America down, and will never enter-and under my administration-we will never enter America into any agreement that reduces our ability to control our own affairs.” 1

Trump believes in a self-described “American First” foreign policy. Consequently, Trump seems reluctant to support the efforts of certain world leaders to create a one-world government at the expense of national sovereignty. In contrast, Antichrist seems like someone who would embrace the efforts of certain leaders to unite the world in fields like politics and economics.

The Ability to Defeat His Strongest Opponents

Daniel 11 indicates that the Antichrist will be able to attack the strongest opponents and win:

“(38) But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things. (39) Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.” (Daniel 11:38-39)

Although the context of Daniel 11:38-39 is the Antichrist’s ability to defeat his foes militarily, the passage indicates that the Antichrist will be able to defeat the strongest of opponents. In contrast, Trump is not an unstoppable force at the time of this writing since he is struggling to get his legislative agenda passed in the U.S. Congress. How is Trump going to rule the world when he cannot even get healthcare legislation passed?

Trump Recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s Capital

Trump startled many people around the world when he announced that the U.S. embassy in Israel would eventually move to Jerusalem and the U.S. would recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. It is important to understand that the move does not represent the confirmation of the “covenant with many” of Daniel 9:27, the event that will initiate the start of the seventieth week of Daniel (the seven-year period commonly known as the “tribulation”). The decision is actually the farthest thing from the confirmation of the covenant with many since it was widely-criticized by the world as unnecessary, unilateral, and even counterproductive to the peace process. The covenant with many will have many sides agree to a deal while Trump’s decision lacked the support of many of the likely participants in the future covenant with many. It will be very difficult for Trump to broker a Middle East peace deal in this evolving geopolitical environment. I believe Trump’s decision greatly increases the likelihood that a non-U.S. president brokers a Middle East peace deal in the future, which thereby increases the likelihood that the Antichrist will be a non-U.S. president.

Conclusion

In sum, I strongly disagree with people who argue that Donald Trump is the Antichrist. Whether or not you like President Trump, please understand that Antichrist is on a completely different level.

Donald J. Trump = Anti-Christ. He is the false Christ that Evilgelicals such as yourself blindly support and equivocate for 24-7. He has admitted to sexually assaulting women yet nowhere do you mention this.

Melania Trump = Whore of Babylon. Consider her former “occupations.” Do the math, you little mathematician.

Where in Revelation 6 does the Bible elude to anything about the rider on the white horse being the antichrist or that he is a negative figure. White has never represented bad in the Bible. It’s doesn’t say he had two horns like a lamb but speaks as a dragon as it does when describing the Anti-Christ in latter chapters. It’s is simply a white horse with a rider whom is actually released by Christ. In latter chapters that anti-christ is empowered by the dragon or Satan. It doesn’t give any such description in this chapter. Some believe it to… Read more »

Perhaps calling The Donald the antichrist is going a step too far, or maybe just half a step. I don’t believe that the antichrist would show himself all at once as Revelation suggests, but rather a step by step program that seduces the weak minded and easily lead first, as Trump has done, while courting the conspiracy theorists and the educated fundamental Christians who teeter on the brink of the presidential abyss. But if not the antichrist then certainly a precursor. The antichrist would need to blend in a bit while making his presence known by his charisma, charm and… Read more »

So… Where to begin? Ok, first don’t take anything I say in this post at face value. Please take some time and research for yourselves. Pray on it if you’re inclined to do so. Recent prophecies come to fruition: the red heifer was born. The snake came out of the Western wall. Jerusalem was named Israel’s capitol. 70th anniversary of the Jews going home. The Euphrates river dried up. The sacrifices on the alter of the 3rd Temple. All verifiable facts and all biblical prophecy.. Commonalities between pres. Trump and the Antichrist. Lineage: scripture says the Antichrist is Assyrian, but… Read more »

A small grammatical correction. my phone auto corrected on me. Mortal wound, not more would, lol. As for the transfer bet thing, I only used it as an example of what might be considered a “biblical blasphemy”. Also, he once publicly stated that he doesn’t see repentance as “necessary”…. Just more food for thought

Hello Wayne, my name is John Dixon, I live north of Indy. This position you’ve taken, and demonstrated is so very true, well explained and in my perspective removes him from all the criteria to be an antichrist. He loves American, and has seen the world over, was a Playboy like I was before salvation, and merely wants to pour his time into restoring this nation. Is he rough around the edges, yes, but so are most, they just hide it well. He is gracious, caring, yet will pull out the baseball bat on anybody who’s abusive where ever. Thank… Read more »

Trump at the very least is the little horn and I can all but prove it. He is also the King of Babylon, which New York. New York use to be our capital. I have also made a ridiculous amount of connections to Egypt with him being some kind of Osiris/Horus/Set character in the vein of Ramses II. Things that when looked at together, are beyond explanation. He is either the direct precursor to the Antichrist, here to create chaos so the real Antichrist can create order, or he is THE guy His mother’s name was Mary, his father’s middle… Read more »

“He will make war with the saints”… the Spirit of the AntiChrist is rising (today ppl were killed at a synagogue in Pitt. and few days ppl where killed after shooter couldn’t get in a church in KY at a Kroger…. The Antichrist spirit is in Donald Trump – Trump doesn’t have the spirit of Christ. You will know those who are of Christ by the fruit that they bear..Galatians 5:22-23 (NIV) But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Trump is a… Read more »

Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.” (Dan 11:37) I think you are misinterpreting this wrong. I have swyers syndrome and as such i have a unique outlook on things. The desire of women does not have to mean sex in fact the desire of most women is not sex but respect and equality. The ability to not have to be forced into doing things. Trump does not regard God in fact he uses Christians and has said so on a couple… Read more »

As much as I support Trump in being the president I will never bow and worship him. IMHO Hussain Obama fit the picture of the antichrist better than what Trump does. Arrogant, charismatic and globalist and will do everything (and still do) to shove his agenda down people’s throats.

Arrogant and Charismatic is not the only markers of the antichrist spirit. the antichrist spirit is the opposite of the fruit of Spirit of God. Also, you don’t bow down…no. but you follow – and support him,,,, isn’t this the same. many who attend the rallies worship him by following him blindly and defending him and excusing him. yet he has never ask God for forgiveness. This is a core principle of faith when following Christ. Open you eyes and look for the fruit of the spirit! Trump bears no good fruit or perhaps you should ask yourself Does Trump… Read more »

President Obama was a great President, good wholesome family man and tried to bring the nation together. I do not see that with this curent, wicked clown occupying the WH. Take your white evangelical blinders off and recognize our President is filled with unrighteousness and pure evil. I see no compassion, love, or kindness associated with Christianity or even Islam for that matter. Do not think he is the anti-Christ but he certainly not someone I… Read more »

Hi. Trump cannot be the antichrist. Rev 13 first talks about the first beast out of the sea as political. The second beast is religious. Trump is far from being religious. When you see the abomination of desolation standing in the holy place claiming to be god. Gary

That’s because the Antichrist is the first beast, not the second. Trump is the AC. Read my book — PLEASE.

I believe the abomination of desolation standing in the holy place to be a nuclear bomb built there in secret as it would be a violation to the jews,muslims and christians alike. IF you take the words apart and look them you will see that what they are describing is a nuclear bomb. The directions given to the people to flee and where to flee also implies that it is a bomb. A person would not instill that kind of terror.

Satan will have a two tiered approach in this age. First he will attempt to deceive through flattery and obtain compromises from God’s people. If that does not work, we will execute on violence. Violence will come from Satan against Christians that actually effect biblical change. If the Christian is ineffective and a compromiser they will not see any hostility, only attempts to manipulate. President Trump is stirring up strife and violence because he is being effective in advancing a Christian agenda. That is the way it happens.

If smashing the hopes of the vulnerable is a christian agenda then may the Lord come Quickly and I do not say that lightly as it will be a day of terror, doom and gloom before Christ returns.

The Anti Christ is the former president Barrack Hussein Obama. For he also didthe things that are mentioned, badly yes but that was the plan all along. He along. with his evil henchmen sought de stabilization of all kinds. If you look back on his administrations actions objectively, u will see just that. Trump has been anointed to tear down and expose this horrible corruption of the earth and the siphoning of money an resources of Gods land. The devil knows nd will not go quietly. This is where the tribulation comes to play.. check out Q anon on utube.… Read more »
