Televangelist Rick Joyner compares Trump to Jesus’ disciples: ‘Every one of them were Donald Trumps’

Published

Televangelist Rick Joyner, who heads the Christian publishing organization MorningStar, compared President-elect Donald Trump to Jesus’ disciples in his most recent Prophetic Perspectives on Current Events program, Right Wing Watch reports.

Joyner said he was in constant communication with Trump throughout his campaign and noted that Trump is “very different than what the media portrayed him as being.”

First of all, according to Joyner, Trump is one of the “kinder, gentler models from New York,” but he is also “tough as nails.” Joyner also alleged that Trump was in tears after they discussed kicking “all these illegal aliens out,” and how that will “bust up families.”

“I saw the tears well up in his eyes,” Joyner said. “He was about to bust out crying.” Trump repeatedly made mass deportation of undocumented immigrants, and building a border wall a central policy platform of his campaign.

Joyner also noted that Trump is “an honest man … one of the most honest people I’ve met.” However, Trump was notorious for consistently lying and backtracking over the course of his campaign.

Fact-checking website Politifact, who fact-checked at least 337 of Trump’s statements on the campaign trail and since his election victory, noted that 19 percent of his claims were “mostly false,” 34 percent were “false,” and 18 percent were “pants on fire.”

However, Joyner said that Trump possesses a serious respect for clergy, and a “remarkable fear of the Lord.”

But the most insightful message that Joyner had about Trump was in regards to Jesus’ disciples. Joyner said, “I think if you look at the disciples that Jesus chose, they were all Donald Trump. Every one of them were Donald Trumps.”

EU and Britain just struck a Brexit deal — here’s what’s in it

Published

on

"Fair and reasonable." That's how both Britain's Boris Johnson and the EU describe the new draft Brexit deal reached Thursday after days of intense haggling.

Here's what's in the accord -- and what each side gave up to get there.

- Northern Ireland -

Arrangements for the UK province of Northern Ireland were the trickiest part of the new deal, and the core of what has changed since last year's withdrawal agreement, which was rejected by British MPs.

The new protocol stipulates that Northern Ireland remains in Britain's customs territory, but in practice there would be a sort of customs border between the province and the mainland.

Expect exodus of high-ranking Trump officials because they ‘no longer have anything to gain’ by staying: columnist

Published

on

Writing for the conservative Bulwark, columnist and author Robert Tracinski said Donald Trump's Syria debacle is likely the turning point for even the most hardened of his most avid defenders in the White House who will likely start leaving.

As Tracinski began, "Donald Trump’s betrayal of the Kurds is a moment that might be more important than it seems—one that is likely to have a far-reaching impact that goes well beyond what happens in Syria."

Hosting the G-7 at Doral is still worth a million dollars to Trump — even if he donates all the profits: reporter

Published

on

President Donald Trump's chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said that holding the G7 summit at Trump's Doral resort would not be a profit for the president. Reports about it fly in the face of the White House claims, however.

The Miami Herald reported in July, when Trump floated the idea, that Doral is in a financial rut and the G7 meeting could help Trump climb out of it.

"Hosting foreign dignitaries has been a financial boon for Trump’s private Palm Beach Mar-a-Lago Club, providing some insight into what financial gains might be expected from hosting the G7 Summit at Trump Doral," said The Herald.
