Why Trump Remains Firm on His Decisions

 
Key points in this article:

  • U.S. President Trump’s policies, which tend to gather criticism, are actually to the point
  • In many of this speeches Trump refers to God and Faith
  • Trump remains firms because he is constantly aware of God’s worldview

 
U.S President Donald Trump’s words and actions always arouse controversy.

In the Hamburg G20 Summit, he affirmed his stance on raising the import tax and the U.S. withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement, which ended up isolating him from other world leaders.

All prejudice aside, however, Trump’s policies are very much to the point.

“I’ll be the greatst job producer that God has ever created,” he said once; and he is living up to it. His trade policy aims to strengthen U.S. power and economically corner China to prevent its anticipated military expansion.

Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement is also well grounded. We have yet to find irrefutable scientific evidence that there is any relation between climate change and greenhouse gases. Trump can foresee that if the U.S. stays in the agreement it will end up depriving many Americans of their employment.

At the G20 Summit, Trump also had his first private talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin, and came to a ceasefire agreement over part of Syria. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the two presidents got along well.

With the Cold War still fresh in their memories, many Americans tend to see Russia as an enemy; but Trump praised Putin very highly. They came to the ceasefire agreement following mutual acknowledgement of the difficulties they face as world leaders and their shared faith in God.

 

Why Trump Remains Firm

Trump has been slammed in the media on both issues, but he is nonetheless remaining firm. The reason? He told us in his Independence Day address:

“As Americans, we love our country, we love our families, we love our freedom, and we love our God.”

“America always affirmed that liberty comes from our Creator. Our rights are given to us by God, and no earthly force can ever take those rights away.”

 
In his speech in Poland the day before the G20 commenced, Trump acknowledged that faith was what encouraged the Poles to take a stand against the oppression from the Nazis and the Soviet Union. “So together, let us all fight like the Poles – for family, for freedom, for country, and for God,” he said.

 

Following Washington and Lincoln

Faith was also something important for the two most revered U.S. Presidents in history.

The Founding Father and soldier George Washington fought for the independence of his people in the name of God, and later became the first President. In his inauguration address he said, “it would be peculiarly improper to omit in this first official Act, my fervent supplications to that Almighty Being who rules over the Universe . . . Every step, by which they [The people of the United States] have advanced to the character of an independent nation, seems to have been distinguished by some token of providential agency.”

Abraham Lincoln also sought aid from God when facing the crisis of a nation in civil war between the North and South. He closed his all too famous second inaugural address as follows:

“With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.”

 
Trump has promised to make America great again, and the firm resolve he has shown towards his policy goals demonstrates his genuine desire to do so. Behind his firm resolve is his faith and awareness of God’s worldview, and from this comes his stern attitude towards materialist states such as North Korea and China.
