None of that answers my question to you, which was, Did government get bigger or smaller under Trump? Did spending increase or did it decrease?

Trump's 2019 budget was "The Largest Budget Deficit With A Strong Economy" according to a Forbes headline:

"At the projected 4.6% for fiscal 2019 it will be the largest in a non-recession year, and the red line shows it will only be worse..."

According to Forbes, President Trump was handed an economy that was growing. In 2017, his first year in office the deficit grew to $666 billion, was $984 billion in 2018 and was projected to be over $1 trillion in 2020 at $1.02 trillion. This would be a 74% increase in just four years... -- https://www.forbes.com/sites/chuckjo.../#4ae6a71b4819
The government grew under Trump. I do not believe that is a credit to him.

The extreme left in the US is bad news, and they are gaining influence over the Democratic party. The extreme right, by backing President Trump no matter what, is wrecking the GOP, and is bad news as well.

There's a clear path out of this mess: The GOP needs to put up a solid candidate in 2024. Like Nikki Halley. Dump Trump. Go with Halley.

If America does not turn back to God then it will not matter who becomes president, the nation is doomed to be turned into hell.

Psalm 9:17
The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.

Ah, back to God. I didn't realize that you are a devout Muslim.

Then the only option for you is to leave the Republican Party, if you haven't already, and join one that actually represents your views.
The republican party commonly supports traditional American/Christian values while the democrat party commonly supports radical anti-God and anti-American policies.

There was a point to my post. If you invoke God, be aware that others have different ideas about God and what he wants.

And they are welcome to share those beliefs. But Mark here has, by posting on this forum, clarified enough that He is, at least as far as I can tell, a Christian. Asking him if he's a Muslim, when you know that he's a Christian, or at the very least has Christian beliefs, is trolling.

Even among Christian sects. You want a theocracy?

No. That will happen in the future, but it's not what I want now, and you know that.

Be careful- you never know what you'll end up with.

No one knows the future.

But I have a pretty good idea of where this country is going, based on what the Bible says.

Believe the Bible. Trust God. Don't trust unsaved sinners to tell you what God believes.

As I pointed out, there was a clear point to my post. This was not "merely to get a rise out of the membership".

7. Thou SHALL NOT troll our forums. If you are here to make outlandish, crazy statements merely to get a rise out of the membership and cause trouble, please save yourself the time and leave.

Quoting Scripture and preaching the Bible is evil, according to unbelievers, leftists, Facebook, Twitter, democrat Marxists, and the like. It should not be considered evil on a theology forum.
