Think it over, hard and long, before you speak. I will listen for a while before I chime in.

Hummm not sure if your comment is a threat or not.Sounds rather ominous. Perhaps before people respond you could be more clear what is meant by "Trump religious phenomenon"

Easy answer. No idea what you're talking about. Trump's religion is Power of Positive Thinking. What phenomenon is going on because of his religion?

I think OP is implying people worship Trump, or maybe he wants to discuss religious people liking Trump, or religious people hating Trump, or maybe he just wants us to be confused.

Apparently the OP is not willing to answer the question.

What religious phenomenon? His core of "true believers" is a lot smaller than the one we had in 2008 with Obama. Obama's cult of personality dominated the media itself.

What "religious phenomenon?" While Trump was campaigning he made no secret of the fact that he was a professing Christian, valued the Bible he had received from his mother (or father) and made a public display of it, and that he would ensure that Christians and Christianity were not discriminated against. He has also taken a firm stand against abortion.

His Vice President is an unapologetic Christian, and that speaks well for Trump. He has been involved with Bible studies and prayer meetings, so Christians should simply be thankful that he is not another secular humanist and let it go at that. Only God knows his heart, so we need not stand in judgment over what kind of a Christian he is.

Could he do more for persecuted Christians? Absolutely. However, Barack Obama was blatantly anti-Christian and pro-Muslim, and some even viewed him as the Antichrist. So Christians should thank God for Trump.

Actions speak louder than words. As to "other Republicans" they are simply political hacks. Trump is not a politician and he has kept his promises (and could have kept even more promises had the RINOs stopped sabotaging him). So if keeping campaign promises is not righteous, then what is? We should not apply the standards of evangelical or fundamentalist Christianity to Donald Trump, but while he was campaigning a lot a Christians were bad-mouthing him, and would even have supported Crooked Hillary (who should be behind bars).

I see very little evidence that Trump is a Christian.
I do not believe that God put trump in office, but may have allowed the American voters to put him in office.
I see Trump as the greatest Politician of my life time. He has everyone fooled into thinking he is not a politician.
I am glad Obama is gone and Clinton lost.
Just my two cents worth.

I wonder what Is a VALID reason that his approval rating Is lower than Obama's approval rating?

Trump DOES have a low APPROVAL rating and the people are not rejoicing?
Approval ratings are fabricated. All the good people that believe in God are rejoicing. I suppose it is to be granted that all the wicked will fear and fret, but that's a good thing.

I am good people, I believe in God, but I am not exactly rejoicing.
I am still in the wait and see mode.
I am so glad Clinton lost, but am not convinced that Trump was the best choice of all who ran in the primaries.
