Trump rallies evangelical supporters: "We have God on our side"

President Trump rallied evangelical supporters in Miami on Friday, positioning himself as a champion of religious communities while ripping his Democratic opponents as “radical” leftists pursuing an “extreme, anti-religious and socialist” agenda.
“Evangelicals, Christians of every denomination and believers of every faith, have never had a greater champion in the White House — not even close — than you have right now,” Trump said at a campaign event launching his “Evangelicals for Trump” coalition Friday evening.
“Together, we’re not only are we defending our Constitutional rights, we’re also defending religion itself, which is under siege,” Trump said. “Every Democrat candidate running for president is trying to punish religious believers and silence our churches and our pastors.”

The event at King Jesus Ministry in Florida came weeks after Christianity Today, a leading evangelical magazine, called for Trump’s impeachment and removal from office, sparking a fierce response from the president and his allies.
A number of prominent evangelicals publicly voiced their support for Trump after the Christianity Today piece, which was penned by now outgoing editor-in-chief Mark Galli, while the president's support among the key voter bloc has shown no signs of wavering.
Trump enjoys strong support among white evangelicals, winning more than 80 percent of voters belonging to the group during the 2016 presidential election.
In his address Friday, Trump hearkened back to his support among evangelicals during 2016, predicting he would “blow those numbers away in 2020.” He urged supporters to “get out and vote” in November, a comment that ushered in chants of “four more years” from the crowd.
“I do really believe we have God on our side,” Trump said of his first presidential campaign. “Or there would have been no way we could have won.”

The Evangelicals are a dangerous bunch because they mix the old law with the new without realizing the old has been superceded by Our Lord. Many of them -including Pastor Hagee - are either avowed Zionists or Masons. Trump is also a pro-Israeli stooge that's why he feels comfortable with this crowd.
"God" has a fairly well-recognized usage in English @elbow. ;-)

He used "God" to refer to what is on the article and "god" to refer to how it should have been written...
No, Elbow asked a question: (quoted here directly) "who or what is the "God" (or "god") proclaimed by Mr Trump?" When Elbow wrote "the God" in quotes and then repeating the word "god" with a lower case and also in quotes, he is tacitly questioning if Mr. Trump was referring to the Judeo-Christian diety or some other being..

The interpretation you derived may have been part of his intent, but …More

The interpretation you derived may have been part of his intent, but it isn't directly supported by the question he asked.

His sentence is perfectly correct. That was a rhetorical question.
Again, you display your unparalleled ability to overstate the obvious, even when it lends no support the "correction" you originally offered. Bolding the sentence was a nice artistic touch, though. When you say something irrelevant, at least you make it pleasing to the eye. ;-)

Oh, yes there are many "well-recognized" usages of "God" in English but only one true i.e. Catholic. Therefore I asked of Mr Trump's usage. Is his "God" private and immanent or rather public and national? Is it rather the individual "God" of each protestant or rather "God" of the Kushner's race? Is he Christ or "God of the White Christmas?" cf. www.timesofisrael.com/how-jewish-amer…
A quick peek at wiki shows, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donald_Trump. By default, his conception of the one true God is not the one we have.

Mr. Trump's "god" is the god of political expediency. Appealing to the so-called "Christian righ, t" he references "God" as a means of political inspiration. Practically speaking, it carries no more depth than having it stamped on belt buckles.

I wonder: who or what is the "God" (or "god") proclaimed by Mr Trump?
It is absurd for the Evolutionist to complain that it is unthinkable for an admittedly unthinkable God to make everything out of nothing, and then pretend that it is MORE thinkable that nothing should turn itself into everything.
