Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump continues to cause buzz online and off as his presidential campaign rolls along. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is also creating buzz because of the odd faces that Christie threw Trump’s way on Super Tuesday, as can be seen in the above photo. Trump was speaking with Christie behind “The Donald,” and throughout the speech on March 1, Christie could be seen making faces in the White and Gold Ballroom at The Mar-A-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida, while listening to Trump. Those faces have folks reacting on Twitter, with some joking that Christie realized Trump was the antichrist at that moment.
#SuperTuesday That picture of Chris Christie looking at Donald Trump is hilarious. He's figured out the Antichrist thing by now, too late.— Crazy Harley (@CrazyHarley13) March 2, 2016
It isn’t all fun and games, though, nor is it the first time that Trump has been likened to the antichrist. The New York Daily News famously called Trump the antichrist on the cover of their publication after Pope Francis called it a decidedly un-Christian like thing to build a wall and try and keep people out instead of being loving and inclusive.
While some of these tweets may or may not be in jest, calling Trump the antichrist as a way to describe the brand of evil that some believe “The Donald” preaches — does Trump really have the biblical stuff of the real antichrist? According to Bible Hub, the true antichrist will fit certain characteristics, as listed below.
“2 John 1:7
For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
1 John 4:3
And every spirit that confesses not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof you have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
1 John 2:22
Who is a liar but he that denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denies the Father and the Son.
1 John 2:18
Little children, it is the last time: and as you have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
2 Thessalonians 2:4
Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.”
Does “The Donald” deny God and that Jesus has come in the flesh? It’s known that Trump is fond of saying how much “evangelicals” love him. According to SF Gate, Trump is considered a fake, merely one walking around with all the pomp and circumstance of an evil genius without the true chutzpah to make “The Donald” a biblical antichrist.
The name Donald John Trump — or even Donald John Drumpf, as John Oliver revealed was Trump’s true name of origin in the viral Last Week Tonight video about Trump from HBO — doesn’t contain 666 in terms of the number of letters in Trump’s first, middle, and last name. But that’s no measure of the mark of the beast. The 666 spoke of in Revelation could represent any manner of symbolic things, like the world wide web, as some scholars of Scripture propose.
Whether Trump is truly the antichrist or one ushering in the antichrist, as those who are tweeting about Trump being the antichrist propose, remains to be seen. So does the fact that Trump may or may not be a psychopath. It’s interesting to read that teachers are using Trump quotes to tell their students how the profile of a psychopath generally plays out.
A search for Trump and psychopath on Twitter shows a healthy amount of theories on the subject matter.
