    The faith of Donald Trump

    That's the title of a video that "Jew and Greek" posted on his youtube channel on Oct 22, 2015. It's about four minutes long :

    A question everyone should ask themselves is "What would Donald Trump have been like as POTUS if he had run as a candidate for the Democrats and had won ?". He was originally pro-choice, he is pro-gay and his nominal religious affiliation is no stronger than that of many Democrats including Hillary Clinton.

    I'm sorry if it seems that way. It's in the gist of the video in the OP from 2015 where Jew and Greek expresses doubts about where Trump is really coming from. So I'm really just wondering what reasons people here have for trusting that Trump is more than a professional populist towards evangelicals as a voter group. We've had that type here in Norway, one called one of the pastors in my church a couple of times back in the eighties and the result was that the pastor bragged about it in church and promoted that political party. In the decades after that there is little doubt that the politician is nowhere near being more than at best a very nominal Christian but it sure sounded like he was on the same wavelength as the pastor during those phone conversations.
    Note that it's quite possible that God would use Donald Trump even if he were a populist, and his having godly advisors helps a lot.

    I always viewed President Trump as a moderate....he supports gay rights....does not mean he agrees with their lifestyle moraly
    ....I do not think I ever heard him speak one way or another on that. His ACTIONS since taking office speak louder than his campaign rhetoric in 2015-2016. He has done much in opposition of abortion.....

    I don't know if you watched the part at the end where she discusses Zinzendorf and the Moravians. She talks about how the Moravian missionaries sold themselves into slavery to be able to evangelize slaves in the Caribbean. That's incorrect, it's just legend. They did think about doing that but in this specific case where they actually inquired into the possibility they were told that the slavers wouldn't accept whites as slaves and they decided to work among them as craftsmen instead. She also mentions a story about Moravian missionaries that left the boat on an island colony for lepers, knowing that they could never return again. I haven't been able to find that story elsewhere but I found a mention of their being asked by the South African government to take over a leper hospital on Robben Island. That was almost 100 years later. But the stories of Moravian missionaries volunteering to become life long martyrs for the sake of the gospel may be exaggerated.
