4. Donald Trump is an unrepentant sinner (Rom 2:4-5). A. He said that he has never asked God for forgiveness. B. The following is a transcript of an interview of Donald Trump by Frank Luntz at the Family Leadership Summit on 7-18-2015. i. Frank Luntz: "Have you ever asked God for forgiveness?" Donald Trump: "That's a tough question [crowd laughs]. I don't think in terms [like that], I'm a religious person. Shockingly, these people are so shocked when they find this out. I'm Protestant, I'm Presbyterian, and I go to church and I love God and I love my church....[rambles on about his former pastor]" Frank Luntz: "But have you ever asked God for forgiveness?" [crowd laughs] Donald Trump: "I'm not sure I have. I just go on and try to do a better job from there. I don't think so. If I do something wrong, I think I just try and make it right. I don't bring God into that picture. Now when I take, you know, when we go to church, and when I drink my little wine, which is about the only wine I drink, and have my little cracker, I guess that's a form of asking for forgiveness. I do that a often as possible because I feel cleansed." (Donald Trump: "I haven't asked God for forgiveness", YouTube, 7-18-2015) C. Trump was later interviewed by Jake Tapper about his admission to Frank Luntz that he has never asked God for forgiveness. The following is a transcript of their conversation. i. Jake Tapper: "One of the potential attack lines has to do with an answer you gave to Frank Luntz months ago when you said that you've never asked God for forgiveness. Do you regret making that remark?" Donald Trump: "No, I have great relationship with God. I have great relationship with the evangelicals. In fact nationwide I'm up by a lot; I'm leading everybody. But I like to be good. I don't like to have to ask for forgiveness. And I am good. I don't do a lot of things that are bad. I try and do nothing that is bad. I live a very different life than probably a lot of people would think, and I have a very great relationship with God, and I have a very great relationship with evangelicals." (Trump has "great realtionship" (sic) with God, YouTube, 1-17-2016) D. There is none that doeth good (Rom 3:12). E. There is none good but God (Mar 10:18). 5. Donald Trump has a filthy mouth (Rom 3:14; Jam 3:9-10). A. Here are direct quotes from Donald Trump said in public rallies. i. "The democrats have to now decide whether they will continue defrauding the public with ridiculous bullshit." (President Donald Trump Swears At Rally, Accusing Democrats Of 'Ridiculous Bull----' | NBC News, YouTube, 3-28-2019) ii. "But it's political bullshit." (Donald Trump BAD WORDS! Compilation YouTube, 1-18-2018) iii. "My tax proposal cuts the hell out of taxes." (Ibid) iv. "You bet your ass I'd approve him." (Ibid) v. "Their ripping the shit out of the sea." (Ibid) vi. "We're going to knock the shit out of ISIS, we're gonna knock the shit out of them." (Ibid) vii. "I would bomb the shit out of them." (Ibid) viii. "We'll beat the shit out of them." (Ibid) ix. "Whoever the hell brought this mic system...the son of a bitch that put it in I'll tell ya." (Ibid) x. "It's 1999, I'm on Meet the Press, a show now headed by sleepy-eyes Chuck Todd, he's a sleeping son of a bitch, I'll tell ya. (audience cheers)" (President Trump calls NBC's Chuck Todd a sleeping "son of a bitch!", YouTube, 3-10-2018) xi. "She said he's a pussy." (Donald Trump BAD WORDS! Compilation YouTube, 1-18-2018) xii. "You can tell them to go (mouths the word "fuck") themselves." (Ibid) xiii. "You're not gonna raise that fuckin' price. You understand me?" (Ibid) xiv. "Listen you mother fuckers..." (Ibid) xv. "I said, you know, you don't like me and I don't like you, I never have liked you and you never have liked me; but you're gonna support me because you're a rich guy, and if you don’t support me, you're gonna to be so God damn poor, you're not gonna believe it. (audience cheers)" (Trump Tells Businessman: You're Going to Vote for Me or You're Going to be So Goddam Poor, YouTube, Greenville, NC, 7-17-2019) xvi. "They'll be hit so God damn hard," (FULL RALLY: President Trump Rally in Greenville, North Carolina, YouTube - 1:22:38, 7-17-2019) B. Many Christians who support, defend, and apologize for Donald Trump would condemn me for reading his own words in public. i. I realize that using some of these words is not necessarily sinful in certain contexts, but if Donald Trump speaks like this regularly in public, then what must he speak like in private? ii. What would Trump supporters say if Barack Obama spoke like that in public? They would have piously condemned him. iii. What do they say when President Trump speaks like that in public? They ignore it or make excuses for him. iv. Hypocrites! 6. Donald Trump is a proud, arrogant, egotistical man. A. Pride is a wicked sin which God hates (Pro 6:16-17; Pro 8:13; Pro 16:5). i. Pride - 1. a. A high or overweening opinion of one's own qualities, attainments, or estate, which gives rise to a feeling and attitude of superiority over and contempt for others; inordinate self-esteem. ii. This definition fits Donald Trump perfectly. B. Donald Trump is possibly the most boastful, proud man that the world has ever seen. i. President Trump said to a crowd of reporters, "I am the chosen one", as he looked up to heaven. a. "Over the last five or six years, China's made 500 billion dollars, 500 billion, ripped it out of the United States. And not only that, if you take a look, intellectual property theft -- add that to it, and add a lot of other things to it. So somebody, excuse me, somebody had to do it. [he turns and looks up to heaven] I am the chosen one. Somebody had to do it. So I'm taking on China." (Trump Says He's the 'Chosen One' to Economically Take on China, YouTube, 8-21-19) b. Blasphemy! ii. President Trump quoted Wayne Allyn Root on August 21, 2019 saying that Trump is loved by Jews in Israel "like he's the King of Israel" and "the second coming of God." a. "“Thank you to Wayne Allyn Root for the very nice words. “President Trump is the greatest President for Jews and for Israel in the history of the world, not just America, he is the best President for Israel in the history of the world...and the Jewish people in Israel love him like he’s the King of Israel. They love him like he is the second coming of God...But American Jews don’t know him or like him. They don’t even know what they’re doing or saying anymore. It makes no sense! But that’s OK, if he keeps doing what he’s doing, he’s good for all Jews, Blacks, Gays, everyone. And importantly, he’s good for everyone in America who wants a job.” Wow!" (Donald J. Trump, Twitter, 8-21-2019) b. Trump obviously agrees with Root that he is like the "king of Israel" and "the second coming of God." c. Blasphemy! C. Here is just a sampling of things that President Trump has said which demonstrate his pride. i. "Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart. Crooked Hillary Clinton also played these cards very hard and, as everyone knows, went down in flames. I went from VERY successful businessman, to top T.V. Star to President of the United States (on my first try). I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius....and a very stable genius at that!" (Donald Trump, Twitter, 1-6-2018) ii. "Nobody knows the system better than me." (Donald Trump Can't Stop Congratulating Donald Trump, YouTube, 3-1-2018) iii. "Nobody knows politicians better than I do." (Ibid) iv. "There's nobody bigger or better at the military than I am." (Ibid) v. "I love the first amendment. Nobody loves it better than me." (Ibid) vi. "Nobody loves the Bible more than I do." (Ibid) vii. "There is nobody that respects women more than I do." (Ibid) viii. "Nobody builds walls better than me." (Ibid) ix. "Nobody, in the history of this country, has ever known so much about infrastructure as Donald Trump." (Ibid) x. "Nobody knows debt better than me." (Ibid) xi. "Nobody even understands it but me." (Ibid) xii. "Nobody can do it like me." (Ibid) xiii. "Which is why I alone can fix it." (Ibid) xiv. "I have Ivy League education, smart guy." (Ibid) xv. "I know words, I have the best words." (Ibid) xvi. "I mean, like, I'm a smart person." (Ibid) xvii. "I'm good at war. I've had a lot of wars of my own. I'm really good at war." (Ibid) xviii. "It's a rigged system. I think I've done a great service pointing this out." (Ibid) xix. "I was the one that really broke the glass ceiling on behalf of women." (Ibid) xx. "I truly believe that the first 100 days of my administration has been just about the most successful in our country's history." (Ibid) xxi. "I think we've done more in two and a half years than any president ever." (FULL RALLY: President Trump Rally in Greenville, North Carolina, YouTube, 7-17-2019) xxii. "I promise: 2024, I leave. By that time, just so you know, by that time our country will be so well seated, it will be so strong like never ever in our history." (Ibid) xxiii. Speaking before the UN General Assembly: "In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country." (When Donald Trump's bragging triggers the UN General Assembly's laughter, YouTube, 9-26-2018) xxiv. "I had an uncle who was a great professor at MIT for 35 years. Is Donald Trump an intellectual? Trust me, I'm like a smart person." (Donald Trump Believes His Genes Are The Secret To His Success, Says Children Will Benefit | TIME, YouTube, 9-12-2017) xxv. "You ever notice they always call the other side, and they do this on purpose, the elite, the elite. Why are they elite? I have a much better apartment than they do. I'm smarter than they are. I'm richer than they are. I became president and they didn't. And I'm representing the greatest, smartest, most loyal, best people on earth, the deplorables, remember that?" (In Chaotic Speech, Trump Brags About How Freaking Rich He Is, YouTube, 6-21-2018) xxvi. "They said, well he's probably not as rich as people think. But then it turned out I was much richer." (Donald Trump brags about his wealth and success, YouTube, 8-16-2015) xxvii. "I'm really rich." (Donald Trump: I'm Rich!, YouTube, 6-17-2015) xxviii. "Well, China is wonderful for China, but I'm wonderful for the USA." (Trump Says He's the 'Chosen One' to Economically Take on China, YouTube, 8-21-19) D. President Trump is heading for destruction (Pro 16:18; Pro 18:12). 7. Donald Trump is a liar (Eph 4:25). A. He said repeatedly that if he were president Hillary Clinton would be in jail. B. During one of the presidential debates Trump said that when elected he would create a special prosecutor and look into Hillary Clinton's email scandal and she would be in jail. i. Trump: "[speaking to Hillary Clinton] If I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation because there has never been so many lies, so much deception. There has never been anything like it, and we're going to have a special prosecutor." (Trump threatens to put Clinton in jail if he becomes president, YouTube, 10-10-16) ii. Trump: "After getting the subpoena you delete 33,000 emails and then you acid wash them, or bleach them as you would say, very expensive process. So we're going to get a special prosecutor and we're going to look into it because you know what, people have been, their lives have been destroyed for doing one fifth of what you have done. And it's a disgrace, and honestly, you ought to be ashamed of yourself." Clinton: (She denies everything) and then says "It's just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country." Trump: "Because you'd be in jail." (Trump Just Suggested Clinton 'Would Be in Jail' if He Were President, YouTube, 10-9-2016) C. During a rally in October, 2016, Trump said the following: "She gets a subpoena and after, not before, that would be bad, but after getting the subpoena to give over your emails and lots of other things, she deleted the emails. She has to go to jail." (Donald Trump: Clinton 'has to go to jail', YouTube, 10-12-2016) D. After being elected, he reneged on that promise. He said the following when being interviewed on 60 minutes. i. Interviewer: "Are you going to ask for a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton over her emails, and are you as you had said to her face going to try to put her in jail?" Trump: "Well, I'll tell you what I'm gonna do. I'm gonna think about it. I feel that I want to focus on jobs, I want to focus on healthcare, I want to focus on the border and immigration, and doing a really great immigration bill; we want to have a great immigration bill, and I want to focus on all of these other things that we've been talking about and get the country straightened away." Interviewer: "You called her Crooked Hillary, said you wanted to get her in jail. Your people and your audiences kept saying 'lock 'em up'." Trump: "Yeah. She did some bad things. I mean She did some bad things." Interviewer: "I know, but that special prosecutor?" Trump: "I don't want to hurt them. I don't want to hurt them. They're good people. I don't want to hurt them. And I will give you a very, very good and definitive answer the next time we do 60 Minutes together." (Trump: "[The Clintons] are good people. I don't want to hurt them" vs. Marx, YouTube, 11-13-2016) ii. President Trump called Bill and Hillary Clinton, some of the most corrupt and vile people on the face of the earth, "good people." a. He condemned Bill Clinton for sexually abusing women and Hillary for trying to cover it up only a month before calling them "good people." (i) "Bill Clinton was abusive to women. Hillary Clinton attacked those same women, and attacked them viciously, four of them are here tonight. One of the women, who is a wonderful woman, at 12 years old was raped at 12. [He points at Hillary Clinton] Her client she represented, got him off, and she's seen laughing on two separate occasions, laughing at the girl who was raped." (Presidential debate: Trump attacks Bill Clinton for alleged abuse to women, YouTube, 10-9-2016) (ii) "There’s never been anyone more abusive to women in politics than Bill Clinton. My words were unfortunate-the Clintons’ actions were far worse" (Donald J. Trump, Twitter, 10-9-2016) b. President Trump calls evil good (Isa 5:20). Woe unto him! iii. President Trump never kept his word and hired a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton. He is a liar. 8. Donald Trump is (or at least was) friends with desperately wicked men (Pro 13:20). A. He was friends with the convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. B. Trump is seen here on video partying with Jeffrey Epstein in 1992 at Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida. C. Trump and his then girlfriend Melania also posed with Epstein and his partner in crime Ghislaine Maxwell at Trump's Mar-a-Lago in this photo on February 12, 2000. i. D. Trump said the following about Epstein to New York Magazine in 2002: "I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy. He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it — Jeffrey enjoys his social life." (Jeffrey Epstein: International Moneyman of Mystery, New York Magazine, 10-28-2002) 9. Donald Trump doesn't have control of his tongue (Ecc 10:11-14). A. A quick look at his Twitter feed will demonstrate this. i. "From the morning of his inauguration through its one-year anniversary, Trump has sent out a whopping 2,568 tweets. That amounts to just a bit more than seven tweets per day." (How Many Times Has Trump Tweeted As President? Twitter Is His Best Friend, Bustle.com, 1-24-2018) ii. "Donald Trump's use of social media has attracted worldwide attention. He frequently uses Twitter and other social media platforms to make comments about other politicians, celebrities and daily news. From his official declaration of candidacy in June 2015 through the first two-and-a-half years of his presidency, he tweeted over 17,000 times. Since early in his presidency, his tweets have been considered official statements by the president of the United States. He often posts controversial or false statements, and his advisors have warned him that his tweets may alienate some of his supporters. In a June 2017 Fox News poll, 70 percent of respondents said Trump's tweets were hurting his agenda. In a January 2019 UMass Lowell poll, 68 percent of all respondents aged 18–37 said Trump tweets too much." (Donald Trump on social media, Wikipedia, 8-8-2019) iii. 17,000 tweets in the four years since announcing his candidacy for president in June 2015 means that Donald Trump has send over 11 tweets per day on average. B. A wise man spares his words (Pro 17:27-28). C. A fool utters all his mind (Pro 29:11). 10. Donald Trump encourages the ungodly and unwise practice of taking on debt (Pro 22:7; Rom 13:8). A. "“I’m the king of debt. I’m great with debt. Nobody knows debt better than me,” Trump told Norah O’Donnell in an interview that aired on “CBS This Morning.” “I’ve made a fortune by using debt, and if things don’t work out I renegotiate the debt. I mean, that’s a smart thing, not a stupid thing.” “How do you renegotiate the debt?” O’Donnell followed up. “You go back and you say, hey guess what, the economy crashed,” Trump replied. “I’m going to give you back half.”" (Trump: 'I'm the king of debt', Politico, 6-22-2016) B. "I'm the king of debt. I understand debt better than probably anybody. I know how do deal with debt very well. I love debt. But you know debt is tricky and it's dangerous and you have to be careful and you have to know what your doing." (Donald Trump: My debt comments were misrepresented, YouTube, 5-9-2016) VI. President Trump is not pro-life in practice. 1. The Alabama legislature passed very strict laws outlawing abortion in nearly every circumstance including rape and incest. 2. Instead of supporting that law and truly opposing the murder of innocent children, President Trump insinuated that the Alabama bill went too far. A. "President Trump and GOP Sen. Mitt Romney said they favor exceptions to strict abortion bans recently passed by several states in an effort to get the Supreme Court to overturn the landmark case of Roe v. Wade. "“As most people know, and for those who would like to know, I am strongly Pro-Life, with the three exceptions – Rape, Incest and protecting the Life of the mother – the same position taken by Ronald Reagan,” Trump wrote on Twitter late Saturday. "But he encouraged Republicans to remain united on the controversial issue. "“If we are foolish and do not stay UNITED as one, all of our hard fought gains for Life can, and will, rapidly disappear!,” he wrote. "Romney said he doesn’t support Alabama’s abortion law — the country’s strictest — that forbids abortions in nearly all cases, including rape and incest. "“I believe that there ought to be exceptions. I’m pro-life, but there ought to be exceptions for rape and incest and where the life of the mother is at risk,” the Utah Republican said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”" (Trump and Romney say Alabama abortion law went too far, New York Post, 5-19-2019) 3. A truly pro-life president would oppose the murdering of unborn children under any circumstance (Isa 7:14 c/w Mat 1:23 c/w Mat 19:18). 4. If President Trump and the republicans really wanted to end abortion, they would pass Ron Paul's Sanctity of Life Act which would immediately overturn Roe v. Wade by defining legal personhood as beginning at conception (Sanctity of Life Act, Wikipedia, 8-27-2019). 5. Ron Paul introduced the bill four years in a row beginning in 2005, but it was never brought up for a vote and died in subcommittee. 6. President Trump and the republican representatives and senators are hypocrites when it comes to abortion (and many other things). VII. President Trump supports the sodomites (Rom 1:26-27, 32; Lev 18:22; Lev 20:13). 1. Trump showed off a sodomite rainbow flag at one of his rallies that had "LGBTs for TRUMP" written on it. (Donald Trump's Trans Military Ban Walks Back Promises To LGBTQ Community | NBC News, YouTube, 7-26-2017) 3. Image from Pacific Standard. 4. Here is what President Trump has said about his support for sodomites and transgenders. A. "The LGBT community, the gay community, the lesbian community, they are so much in favor of what I've been saying over the last three or four days." (Donald Trump's Trans Military Ban Walks Back Promises To LGBTQ Community | NBC News, YouTube, 7-26-2017) B. "I am far better for women. I am far better for gays [crowd cheers]." (Ibid) C. "[referring to transgender bathrooms] You leave it the way it is. There have been very few complaints the way it is. People go, they use the bathroom that they feel is appropriate." (Everything President Trump Has Said About The LGBTQ Community, Including Fighting For Them | TIME, YouTube, 4-21-2016) D. Interviewer: "So if Caitlyn Jenner were to walk into Trump Tower and want to use the bathroom, you would be fine with her using any bathroom she chooses?" Candidate Trump: "That is correct." (Ibid) E. While speaking at the Republican National Convention, Candidate Trump said, "As your president, I will do everything in my power to protect our LGBTQ citizens from the violence and oppression of a hateful foreign ideology." (Donald Trump's Trans Military Ban Walks Back Promises To LGBTQ Community | NBC News, YouTube, 6-21-2016) F. Interviewer: "One of the groups that's expressing fear are the LBGTQ group." President Trump: "And did I mention them at the Republican National Convention? Interviewer: "You did." President Trump: "And everybody said 'that was so great'. I have been, you know, I have been a supporter." (Ibid) G. "Ask yourself, 'who is really the friend of women and the LGBT community? Donald Trump with actions, or Hillary Clinton with her words?' I will tell you who the better friend is, and some day I believe that will be proven out bigly." (Ibid) H. "A radical Islamic terrorist targeted the night club. Not only because he wanted to kill Americans, but in order to execute gay and lesbian citizens because of their sexual orientation. It's a strike at the heart and soul of who we are as a nation." (Everything President Trump Has Said About The LGBTQ Community, Including Fighting For Them | TIME, YouTube, 6-13-2016) I. "A friend of mine called up, he said 'you know, you don't get enough credit because in Palm Beach, you opened a club that nobody would do, nobody would do, and it's open to everybody, it's open to everybody.' And a person, a member of the club, a great guy, who is gay, wrote this magnificent letter saying what Donald Trump did, nobody else would do." (Ibid) J. Interviewer: "Do you support marriage equality?" President-elect Trump: "It's irrelevant because it was already settled, it's law. It was settled in the Supreme Court, I mean, it's done." Interviewer: "So even if you appoint a judge that...[didn't finish her question]" President-elect Trump: "It's done, and you have these cases have gone to the Supreme Court, they've been settled, and I'm fine with that." (Ibid) K. "Thank you to the LGBT community! I will fight for you while Hillary brings in more people that will threaten your freedoms and beliefs." (Donald J. Trump, Twitter, 6-14-2016) L. "As we celebrate LGBT Pride Month and recognize the outstanding contributions LGBT people have made to our great Nation, let us also stand in solidarity with the many LGBT people who live in dozens of countries worldwide that punish, imprison, or even execute individuals on the basis of their sexual orientation. My Administration has launched a global campaign to decriminalize homosexuality and invite all nations to join us in this effort! (Donald J. Trump, Twitter, 5-31-2019) M. President Trump is a wicked man for supporting what God hates. VIII. President Trump is not pro-gun (Luk 22:36; Luk 11:21). 1. President Trump has called for outlawing the sale of rifles to adults aged 18-20. A. "It doesn't make sense that I have to wait till I'm 21 to get a handgun, but I can get this weapon at 18, I don't know?" (Trump clashes with Republicans in gun control meeting, YouTube, 2-18-2018) B. "I will be strongly pushing Comprehensive Background Checks with an emphasis on Mental Health. Raise age to 21 and end sale of Bump Stocks! Congress is in a mood to finally do something on this issue - I hope!" (Donald J. Trump, Twitter, 2-22-2018) 2. President Trump has called for universal background checks for purchasing guns. A. President Trump knows that background checks do not prevent criminals from getting guns, yet he is calling for them anyway. i. Here is what Donald Trump himself wrote in his own book. ii. "Unfortunately, as expected, bringing more government regulation into the situation has accomplished very little. The main ‘benefit’ has been to make it difficult for a law-abiding American to buy a gun. As study after study has proven, few criminals are stupid enough to try to pass a background check or have their names in any kind of system." (Donald Trump, Great Again: How to Fix Our Crippled America, 2015) B. "We're going to do strong background checks. We're gonna work on getting the age up to 21 instead of 18. We're getting rid of the bump-stocks." (Trump proposes changes to gun laws, YouTube, 2-22-2018) C. "Whether we are Republican or Democrat, we must now focus on strengthening Background Checks!" (Donald J. Trump, Twitter, 2-20-2018) D. "We cannot let those killed in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, die in vain. Likewise for those so seriously wounded. We can never forget them, and those many who came before them. Republicans and Democrats must come together and get strong background checks, perhaps marrying this legislation with desperately needed immigration reform. We must have something good, if not GREAT, come out of these two tragic events!" (Donald J. Trump, Twitter, 8-5-2019) E. "Serious discussions are taking place between House and Senate leadership on meaningful Background Checks. I have also been speaking to the NRA, and others, so that their very strong views can be fully represented and respected. Guns should not be placed in the hands of mentally ill or deranged people. I am the biggest Second Amendment person there is, but we all must work together for the good and safety of our Country. Common sense things can be done that are good for everyone!" (Donald J. Trump, Twitter, 8-9-2019) F. "“There is a great appetite, and I mean a very strong appetite, for background checks. And I think we can bring up background checks like we’ve never had before,” Trump said. “I think both Republican[s] and Democrat[s] are getting close to a bill on — to doing something with background checks.”" (Poll: Most Republicans support assault weapons ban, despite Trump saying 'no appetite', Politico, 8-7-2019) G. The FBI just recently said that if you believe in conspiracy theories, you are a "domestic terrorist threat". i. "The FBI for the first time has identified fringe conspiracy theories as a domestic terrorist threat, according to a previously unpublicized document obtained by Yahoo News." (Exclusive: FBI document warns conspiracy theories are a new domestic terrorism threat, Yahoo News, 8-1-2019) ii. I think this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to who the government will determine to be "mentally ill" and "deranged" and will therefore not be allowed to purchase or own a gun. 3. President Trump signed a law outlawing bump-stocks. A. "The Trump administration rolled out a new federal regulation Tuesday officially banning bump-fire stocks. Those who possess the devices, which make it easier to fire rounds from a semi-automatic weapon by harnessing the gun's recoil to "bump" the trigger faster, will have 90 days to turn in or otherwise destroy them from the date that the final rule is published in the federal register -- likely this Friday -- according to senior DOJ officials." (Trump administration officially bans bump stocks, CNN, 12-18-2018) B. "Trump said in October he told the National Rifle Association that "bump stocks are gone,"" (Ibid) C. "I will be strongly pushing Comprehensive Background Checks with an emphasis on Mental Health. Raise age to 21 and end sale of Bump Stocks! Congress is in a mood to finally do something on this issue - I hope!" (Donald J. Trump, Twitter, 2-22-2018) D. "Very strong improvement and strengthening of background checks will be fully backed by White House. Legislation moving forward. Bump Stocks will soon be out. Highly trained expert teachers will be allowed to conceal carry, subject to State Law. Armed guards OK, deterrent!" (Donald J. Trump, Twitter, 3-12-2018) E. "Obama Administration legalized bump stocks. BAD IDEA. As I promised, today the Department of Justice will issue the rule banning BUMP STOCKS with a mandated comment period. We will BAN all devices that turn legal weapons into illegal machine guns." (Donald J. Trump, Twitter, 3-23-2018) 4. President Trump has publicly advocating taking guns from people without due process. A. Regarding a Florida shooter, President Trump said, "The police saw that he was a problem; they didn't take any guns away. Now that could have been policing; I think they should have taken them away anyway, whether they had the right or not." (Trump clashes with Republicans in gun control meeting, YouTube, 2-18-2018) B. "Take the firearms first, and then go to court." (Trump stuns lawmakers with gun control demands, YouTube, 3-1-2018) C. "I like taking the guns early; so you could do exactly what you're saying, but take the guns first, go through due process second." (Ibid) 5. President Trump has called for "red-flag gun laws". A. "Red flag" laws allow authorities to prevent a person from ever buying a gun or to take a person's guns based on a family member's or other's testimony claiming that the person is a danger to himself or others before the person has committed a crime. B. "We must make sure that those judged to pose a grave risk to public safety do not have access to firearms, and that if they do, those firearms can be taken through rapid due process. That is why I have called for red-flag laws, also known as extreme risk protection orders."
