"A Biblical/Conservative Argument"
What You Need To Know:
TRUMP 2024 could use a little more jeopardy and drama. However, it presents a conservative, enjoyable argument for why President Trump is the best person to lead the United States and its people for the next four years. Parts of Trump’s speeches from his public appearances brilliantly capture his passionate defense of America, religious liberty and the right to life. TRUMP 2024 is filled with multiple great Trump soundbites, but it’s also filled with brilliant, insightful comments from the interviews with Christians and conservatives. As a result, TRUMP 2024 has many notable moments.
TRUMP 2024: THE WORLD AFTER TRUMP is a documentary promoting President Donald Trump’s fight for American prosperity, national security, sovereignty, religious liberty, and the right to life with powerful narration, snippets from some Trump speeches, and interviews with conservatives, religious leaders and a few retired military officers. Now streaming on the new SalemNOW network, TRUMP 2024 could use more jeopardy and drama, but for the Trump believers it’s a conservative argument for why President Trump should be reelected.
The movie opens with soundbites of political leaders, pundits and regular citizens on the streets expressing their feelings and attitudes pro and con toward the President. This opening sets the stage for an argument against globalism, the international movement to establish an international government that would destroy the sovereignty of the United States of America .
The argument against globalism begins by citing the first words of the U.S. Constitution, “We the people.” “America is about We the people,” the narrator declares. He asks whether the American people will throw out their Constitution and be ruled by nameless bureaucrats or even a one-world dictator.
The narrator then cites Chapter 13 of the Book of Romans in the New Testament, which says that government authorities are “established by God.” It uses this scriptural reference eisegetically to launch into an attack against globalism and global institutions such as the United Nations, the World Bank, the Global Compact for Migration, and the World Health Organization, which was caught hiding the truth about the extent of the coronavirus epidemic in Communist China. The narrator notes that, during the recent coronavirus pandemic, Americans have begun to realize their country is too dependent on foreign countries and governments for their medicine and medical supplies.
“This great republic of ours was built on the notion of individual liberty, individual freedom, and that means individual responsibility,” says Mike Huckabee, former governor of Arkansas. Huckabee warns against capitulating to globalism by rejecting the traditional notion that America has become a special place in the last 400 years. “The country was founded to be a republic, not a democracy,” adds author and radio talk show host Dennis Prager. “The Left, in the words of Barack Obama, wants to fundamentally transform the United States if America. I don’t. I want to improve the United States of America, but I don’t want to fundamentally transform it, because I love it. You can’t love something you want to fundamentally transform.”
With these words, the documentary argues against surrendering American sovereignty to a centralized global government, which would destroy the American people’s ability and right to run their own government and uphold their own national traditions and personal religion. The documentary points out that globalist institutions like the World Bank and the European Union are run by small groups of elites that seriously weaken the sovereignty and liberty of nations like the United States and the countries in Europe. A global government and an end to national borders would be the end of America, Prager argues. “The United States should never cede its authority to some nebulous global entity,” Gov. Huckabee adds.
The documentary shows how President Trump’s “American First” policies have protected American sovereignty, and the liberty of the American people, by challenging the authority of the World Health Organization and removing America from such flawed globalist entities as the Global Compact for Migration and the Paris climate accords. The movie notes that the United States still led the world’s industrialized nations in decreased carbon emissions.
TRUMP 2024 transitions from a discussion of President’s Trump’s efforts to fight globalism to his administration’s efforts to take a stand against socialism, which is government control of the economy. The documentary points to the abject failure of socialism in countries like the old Soviet Union, Venezuela and Cuba. Redistribution of wealth and collectivism destroyed the economies of those three countries. Socialism also leads to tyranny and murder. The Rev. Franklin Graham reports how an Orthodox priest from Russia told him that the socialist, communist leaders of the Soviet Union murdered all the priests who opposed them in any significant fashion.
During this segment, President Trump and several others assert that the Democrat Party has become a radical socialist party. They contend the Democrats will destroy liberty and the American Dream. Conservative pundit Star Parker says the socialists running the Democrat Party want the government to make every decision for the individual about healthcare, education and work. “This is not freedom,” she says, noting that socialist welfare policies have destroyed the black family in America. For example, before the welfare state greatly expanded in the 1960s, about 70% of black children had a working father in their homes, but now about 78% of black children live in homes without fathers.
The next segment discusses God, Christianity, religion, and society. It includes a discussion defending President Trump’s efforts to show strong support for America’s ally, Israel.
The segment begins with the Rev. Robert Jeffress reporting a discussion with President Trump. Jeffress said told Trump that he believes it was God’s Will for Trump to be president from 2017 to 2021, but that it also was God’s Will for Barack Obama to be president from 2009 to 2017. Jeffress and Pastor Jack Hibbs both cite Romans 13 again for this belief that God establishes the government authorities. Bishop Harry Jackson says, “The Lord has appointed Trump to be president in that he has stopped a cycle of policies that are anti-life, anti-faith, anti-Israel. Those things at this point are near the Heart of God.” Several people contend that the heavy opposition President Trump has faced during his first term has been because he defends America’s Jewish, Christian, biblical roots and a strict interpretation of the United States Constitution. The movie also cites Genesis 12:3 where God promises to bless those who bless the descendants of Abraham, the Jewish people, including Israel. Various commentators in the movie cite Trump’s renewed support for Israel and his proclamation that the United States recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel as one reason the Anti-Israel lobby in the Democrat Party, which has become more powerful in recent years, dislikes Trump so vehemently. Unlike President Trump, President Obama told his ambassador to the United Nations to stand down when the U.N. passed a resolution against Israel’s “occupation of the West Bank” and control of the eastern part of Jerusalem.
A discussion of illegal immigration follows this segment on President Trump’s defense of America’s religious roots and its support for Israel, which is the only democratic government in the Middle East. “The Democrat agenda of open borders is morally reprehensible,” Trump says in a short scene from one of his rallies. Controlling America’s southern border is vital to the country’s national security, retired Lt. Col. Damon Friedman contends. Jeffress and Pastor Jack Hibbs note that the Bible says in multiple passages that God establishes nations, borders and boundaries. Jeffress also cites Revelation 21:12, which says that the Holy City of Heaven, Jerusalem, has a “great, high wall with 12 gates.” “There is nothing immoral about a wall,” Jeffress adds.
If the Democrat Party’s agenda for open borders is morally reprehensible, then surely the Democrat Party’s support for the abortion murder of harmless unborn babies is downright wicked. That’s exactly the contention of the documentary’s next segment. In it, various people make a spirited defense of the pro-life movement to ban abortion throughout the United States. The movie notes that abortion is the leading cause of death among black Americans. The Rev. Franklin Graham recalls that, when he was growing up in the South during segregation, some of the white boys on the playground defended abortion, because it would result in fewer black people in the America. “I believe abortion is racist,” Graham says. The movie notes that the founder of the pro-abortion group Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, was a notorious racist who supported using abortion to kill black babies. A clip featuring Hillary Clinton shows Clinton ignorantly expressing admiration for Sanger. Dennis Prager notes that a baby is not really a part of a woman’s body but is actually a little person “IN” a woman’s body. In a clip from the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., where Trump became the first person to ever speak in person to the marchers, Trump says, “Every child is a precious and sacred gift from God. Every life brings love into this world. Every child brings joy to a family. Every person is worth protecting. Above all, we know that every human soul is divine and every human life, born and unborn, is made in the holy image of Almighty God.” The President clearly believes in the sanctity of life, adds Dr. Alveda King, the niece of the Rev. Martin Luther King, the martyred civil rights leader. Abortion has killed two future generations of Americans since 1973, 68 million babies.
Of course, the Democrat Party leaders most vociferously opposed to President Trump are also vigorously in favor of continuing this awful holocaust. To prove this point, the movie includes a clip of a very angry Senator Chick Schumer, the leader of the Democrats in the United States Senate, threatening Republicans with “reaping a whirlwind” if they continue pushing their pro-life policies.
The documentary’s final segment discusses the question of character in picking a candidate for office and deciding which candidate to support at the ballot box with one’s vote. Despite all the criticisms President Trump has received for his blunt character, his rhetoric, his personal life as a rich ladies man, and vague allegations of being too “divisive,” several Trump supporters note in the movie that, unlike many other politicians, Trump has kept most if not all of his promises. “Promises made and promises kept about life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” says Dr. Alveda King. “And, he puts his heart and his money where his heart is.” Dr. Jack Graham of PowerPoint Ministries adds, “To be a man who keeps his promises is a character issue.” Unlike other politicians, President Trump “knows what he wants to do, and he does it,” Tony Perkins of Focus on the Family says. “I’ve seen so many strong, even Christian, leaders who have folded in the face of opposition, and this president hasn’t.” Other people praise Trump’s courage, energy and perseverance in fighting for other people and for the causes he supports.
“All God has at his disposal is flawed men and women,” pro-life activist Randall Terry says. “We’re all flawed,” adds Franklin Graham. “Were all sinners, every last one of us, and God uses flawed people.” “So, the question ought to be asked,” Pastor Hibbsm says, “can God use flawed leaders, but if God can’t use flawed leaders, then who’s He gonna use? Jesus Christ is not on the ballot. He never will be.” Jeffress says some Christians come up to him and ask, “‘How can God use such an ungodly person as Donald Trump,’ and I say, ‘Well, he’s using YOU, isn’t he?’”
All these people, and more, urge viewers to exercise their right to vote and support President Trump for a second four-year term. The Democrat Party has become a godless, immoral political cult, Jeffress contends. “The election is about the Supreme Court,” Franklin Graham adds. “Don’t betray Jesus with your vote,” Randall Terry says while urging Catholics and other Christians to vote for Trump.
TRUMP 2024 could use a little more jeopardy and drama, and a better subtitle summarizing its viewpoint. For example, the movie really doesn’t predict what will happen to America, Israel and the world after President Trump leaves office. What it does is give viewers an inkling of what America, Israel and the world will be like if Trump wins re-election in November 2020, to occupy the White House through Jan. 19, 2025, versus what America, Israel and the world will be like if Joe Biden and the Democrats defeat Trump at the polls in November. Ultimately, the movie provides a full-throated argument for ensuring the first outcome and for stopping the second. As such, the movie gives viewers an enjoyable cinematic argument for why President Trump is the best person to lead the United States and its people for the next four years.
Parts of Trump’s speeches from his public appearances brilliantly capture his passionate defense of America, religious liberty and the right to life. TRUMP 2024 doesn’t disappoint in that area. It’s filled with great Trump soundbites from some of those speeches. It’s also filled with brilliant, insightful comments from the interviews with Christians, conservatives and military. As a result, the movie has many highly quotable moments.
TRUMP 2024 has no objectionable content, so it’s appropriate viewing for all ages, though younger children aren’t old enough to appreciate the movie’s theological, political arguments.
