MasterwebNews 14/11/16: Congratulations to President-elect Donald John Trump and why he won

[ Masterweb Reports: Rev. Dr. C. K. Ekeke Congratulates Trump ] - As the U.S. President-elect Donald J. Trump, seating-President Barack H. Obama and other U.S. leaders and groups seek ways to unify a deeply divided nation after such a stunning victory against Hillary Clinton, who would’ve become the first female President of the United States, after more than 200 years of presidential democracy, Americans must now “take a deep breath” according to Oprah Winfrey and “have an open mind and give Donald Trump the chance to lead” according to Mrs. Hillary Clinton, who was defeated.


Psychologists have written that it usually takes about a week for some to recover from unexpected loss, some months and other years.


Over the last five days since real-estate mogul and billionaire businessman won the U.S. presidency, my phone and emails are being bombarded with calls seeking for opinions on what happened. 


Off-course, most of you are following the news in the U.S. and worldwide—especially the anti-trump protests going on in several cities across America.  It is saddening indeed.  In as much as they have the rights to exercise their free speech in a democracy, encouragingly, it has been mostly peaceful; however, it demeans the oldest constitutional democracy on the planet.


Many have called Trump’s victory—a political earthquake and tsunami.  Others see it as a defeat of the Washington establishment political elitists of both parties.  That remains to be seen as he picks his cabinet, his policies and actions in the coming days ahead. 


Also some liberal political pundits see Trump’s victory as a “whitewash” and the ‘rise of white populism.’  For them, when Donald Trump says: “Let’s make America Great again,” that what it means.


Although most White American Evangelicals and Religious Right voted massively for Donald Trump, many liberal religious leaders and scholars, instead hailed Trump’s victory as an “apocalypse.”


This is quite an uncertain times in America and millions of Americans – more than half of those who voted for Hillary—are disappointed and angry while immigrants are concerned and afraid.


Trump surrogates see his victory as a ‘change election’—which is partly correct.  For me personally, Trump’s victory is a clear repudiation of Obama’s coward and weak presidency—especially his foreign and social policies as well as total neglect of his constituencies – in particular the Black Community.


God has a purpose in everything that happens.  Throughout history – we study that emperors, kings, presidents, etc., may be appointed, selected, elected, or rigged into power for a reason and God usually allows it in order to work out His purpose (s) and plan(s). 


You see it throughout biblical Kings – even King David comes into mind.  How did God overlook all the older sons of Jesse and choose David, the youngest to rule over Israel after the rejection and disqualification of the evil rule of King Saul (1 Samuel 16:1-13).


It’s time to bind the wounds of division support and pray for President-elect Donald J. Trump. As Oprah Winfrey said, “it is time to take a deep breath.”  “It’s time to have an open mind and give the president-elect the chance to lead” – according to Hillary Clinton.


Congratulations to President-elect Donald John Trump! God has given you massive worldly wealth and now global power.  I pray that you govern wisely, courageously and compassionately. Amen.
