Donald J. Trump may be the most covered president in history. This is partly due to the way he dominates the news cycle with his tweets and his larger-than-life personality. The “fake news media” hate him, yet they report his every move. On top of the news coverage, he uses Twitter to accomplish his agenda. Everyone seems to know what Trump is thinking. Or do we?
As the election looms, I have filled my new book, God, Trump, and the 2020 Election, with tens of thousands of words of my opinion and those of several dozen news sources. I have tried to be objective, though it’s clear how much I respect the president and believe he is doing a good job and must be reelected.

I asked the kinds of questions I thought most of my readers would want to ask. His answers revealed a confident, determined man who is truly committed to making America great again through principles that honor God rather than defy Him.
This election is one of the most important in recent history. And the best way to understand the issues addressed in my book is to hear Trump in his own words.
If my interview in 2016 wasn’t a foreshadowing of the president we would see in the next four years, we got to know him in the tweets he sent out at an average of 16 a day. I culled through his tweets, which are considered official pronouncements from the president of the United States, to show what he says about several important topics. I am letting what Trump said speak for itself… read more
