Faith in general is on the decline in the US, so the super faithful need a new messiah to get behind. They tried that whole Jesus said to love your neighbors, feed the hungry, help the poor and don't slut-shame women, and that didn't gel well with their desire to be white, rich, land and slave owning powerful warmongers who married girls off at 12 to make sure they're virginal.I do find it funny though, that the US republican party is apparently swinging back to royalty rule. Seeing how many trumpists actually believe that gahwd is choosing our presidents, and he's been divinely chosen, and all that shit. They think he's an actual king. I mean, that's literally the kind of shit we revolted against back at the founding. And these chucklefucks are bringing it back. Rulership by divine providence. That's democracy in their eyes!! *rolls eyes*
And who better to be a messiah to people like that than Donald Trump?
