I am still in no doubt

in response to reader comment: Who is trustworthy, and who isn't?

Michael S, your "facts" 1-4 - even if they are facts - have nothing to do with Donald Trump and consequently nothing to do with whether he is a deceiver. It is logically possible for more than one person to be a deceiver.

"Fact" 5, though relating to Trump, would in no way change my mind even if it were true. The Antichrist "confirms a covenant" (Daniel 9:27) which likewise sounds like the keeping or confirming of a promise. But the reason I know for a fact that Donald Trump is a deceiver is very simple. He says things that are mutually inconsistent with the obvious goal of self-justification. This is the essence of deceit. And so it is with the Antichrist. Even when promises are kept, it is always with an ulterior motive eventually to subvert what is good.
