Trump is Trying to do what this country Needs to be having done. Draining a swamp. A swamp is by nature full of green slim and junk / stagnant water. It can be a stinky job to drain it. The Democrats are making it pretty much impossible To unite America, God is still alive and represented by born-again believers -- so He is still here and providing 'light' in a dark world. There is Always middle ground. Sometimes hard to find, but it's always there.

There are no doubt a lot of people who voted Trump In to keep Clinton Out. He's fighting an uphill battle cause he's doing what the Democrats don't want.

First, this is exclusively about politics. I am a Trump supporter, but I do not agree on this. Faith is a private matter. Also, there are many interpretations of the Bible. Talk to various Jewish rabbis and you'll get many different interpretations of Torah which are completely different from Christian interpretations. One should not equal faith and politics. Jesus Christ was not a Republican or a Democrat.
People are losing the sense of awe and mystery if they start to think Jesus would be a Republican. It is ridiculous. Also, one should be aware of the fact that the United States is not a theocracy.
The United States is a democracy. In a democracy with time and change over time, social attitudes also change. Various beliefs and customs were present in Christianity in the year 1200, 1600, 1800 and 2019.

Both of these lists are to some point extreme whether liberal or conservative if we want to talk politics. Moderate and more understanding social attitudes and compromise on both sides is always the best in politics and society.
The United States in NOT a democracy. It is a constitutional republic. Democracy is if a majority wants to kill you and take your property, they can legally. Whereas in a constitutional republic, you have rights as the little guy. In a pure democracy, about 5% of the land population (those in more populous cities) would be telling the rest of the nation what to do in everything.

FYI (to everyone) for clarity, I myself am no way a liberal in any sense. I consider myself a conservative. I think the liberal views (politically at least) are evil for the most part, easily.
I would agree. Nearly everything about liberalism is evil. Today it's OK for a drag queen to read children's books the 5-7 year old's at the library. They take prayer and the Ten Commandments out of Schools, tried to take a historic bible out of the VA Hospital. The promote homosexuality and expect all of us to cave into their dictates. They don't care if the immigrants coming in are criminals or tax the welfare system etc. because they know they likely vote Democrat. Quite honestly, I'm at the end of my rope with liberals. By no means do they espouse Christian principles.

We live in a society where homosexuals lecture us on morals, transvestites lecture us on human biology, baby killers lecture us on human rights, and socialists lecture us on economics.

Isa 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

I was too lazy to read all the differences, but I have more liberal than conservative ideas. What I find so weird is that in America you have to be this or that. Republican is christian. Liberal is evil. Liberals have a lot of good points and republicans a lot of bad points. I'd vote for neither. Luckily I don't have to because the christian Dutch party is in the middle. No death penalty. No same sex marriage. No abortion. They just take the good points of both. Then when I say some liberal stuff to an American Trump supporter evangelical christian, like: wow that police officer tasing that woman for just having a big mouth and a failing car light, he's like: don't listen to these leftish libtards! He doesnt even talk to me anymore. He was furious. How dare I call this God and the country serving brave police officer an ego tripper? Well he was just abusing his power. Send her thing home if she refuses to sign. I said: Can't you be just normal? Now I'm not a friend anymore. It was so weird. He asked the ppl in his church and they were all like: this police officer did a fabulous job. Weird. As if they worship the system. What's christian about tasering a 65 y o woman who isn't a danger?? They mixed politics and christianity. What's christian about the death sentence? That one mass murderer got saved in prison. Jesus didn't stone the woman. I do admit that the Netherlands is bad too. Liberal, total opposite, rape someone and get a year in a luxury room. Then get out and go rape the next. They should just have a christian party, not left or right.
And immigration: yes sure kick Isis members out, but what about being kind to the stranger who comes to your country? Hospitality. Just gets skipped what Jesus says. Doesn't matter. Trump knows better. They don't want em here either. No watch out that we don't get less money. Yet churches who reach out to these people see a lot of converts. They prayed for some who could stay. One guy in my church. Poor boy. They wanted to kick him out to some dangerous place. That's not christian. That was an evil unbeliever who wanted to kick him out.
The liberal stuff in my country like taking care of the poor comes from christian roots. The church used to do that and then they made it politics.
Aunt of my ex lived in America. That was before Obama and his health care. She was not rich. She screamed through the whole hospital from pain when she died from cancer. They refused to give her morphine cause she couldn't pay. And then they say: Obama's healthcare system is bad and from the liberals. Well better than before that if you ask me.
