What Does Trump’s Promise Of A Nation ‘Under One God’ Really Mean?

Talking about God is pretty standard for American politicians. But a line that has been popping up often in Donald Trump’s recent campaign speeches seems to go further.

At a recent gathering of conservative Christians in Washington, D.C., Trump promised that if he is elected president, “we will be one American nation.” The Republican nominee quoted the Bible and spelled out his vision for American unity:

“Imagine what our country could accomplish if we started working together as one people, under one God, saluting one flag,” Trump said, drawing enthusiastic applause from the crowd at the Values Voter Summit.

It’s the phrase “one God” that’s catching the ear of some groups, who argue it is at odds with the American promise of religious freedom.

Trump has used the line several times at large campaign rallies and invitation-only speeches in recent weeks: inPhiladelphia, near Des Moines, Iowa, and in Asheville, N.C., among other places.

  1. Trumps “one-god”::- Trump is a jew, the jews are accustomed to conning others, they get away with it because heads of state don’t know rheir own minds. The “one-god” idea was invented by the jews. If heafs of state were to learn the difference between fact and fiction, instead of buckling to the jews just to look and sound good, they would discover that they, (the jews), are not all they are imagined to be, they rely on ignorance of religion and look down on the fools who live in ignorance.
