A certain sect of American evangelical Christians believes that President Donald Trump has been chosen by God to bring about the end of the world — but at least two “End Times” prophets think the president ought to give Americans one last chance to redeem themselves before unleashing his “Trumpocalypse.”
Right Wing Watch reports that Paul McGuire and Troy Anderson — who are co-authors of an upcoming book called “Trumpocalypse: The End-Times President, a Battle Against the Globalist Elite, and the Countdown to Armageddon” — are trying to personally lobby Trump to declare an official call for national repentance, in which Americans will be encouraged to ask God for forgiveness of their sins.
“A minister friend of ours is working with the White House and members of Congress on a congressional resolution that would call for this national day of repentance,” Anderson explained during an interview with Christian online news network SkyWatch TV. “The idea is that, from the Oval Office, he would read the Lincoln proclamation, repent of America’s sins before God and there would be a day-long event.”
According to the Amazon.com description of their forthcoming “Trumpocalypse” book, the authors examine “the enigmatic prophecies and ‘biblical codes’ involving Trump” and ask “whether God raised up President Trump as a fearless leader to guide America and the free world through a series of major crises as the biblical end-time narrative unfolds.”

Israel parliament rejects law targeting Netanyahu over indictment
Israeli lawmakers on Wednesday rejected a bill targeting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that sought to block candidates under indictment from forming a future government.
In a vote that highlighted the fragility of the premier's coalition, Wednesday's bill, proposed by opposition leader Yair Lapid, was defeated 53-37. Members of the Blue and White party, who are part of the coalition, abstained.
Talk of a snap election is already widespread, just three months after the current government was formed.
Netanyahu is on trial for bribery, fraud and breach of trust. He denies wrongdoing.
Trump campaign lashes out at GOP congressman for calling QAnon conspiracy theory a ‘fabrication’
This Wednesday, Illinois GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger posted a message to Twitter denouncing the QAnon conspiracy theory cult, saying the people who adhere to the cult's claims have no place in Congress.
"Qanon is a fabrication. This 'insider' has predicted so much incorrectly (but people don’t remember PAST predictions) so now has switched to vague generalities," he wrote. "Could be Russian propaganda or a basement dweller. Regardless, no place in Congress for these conspiracies."
Kinzinger's tweet caught the eye of President Trump's Deputy Director of Communications Matt Wolking, who apparently took issue with the Representative's suggestion that QAnon could be part of a Russian disinformation campaign.
