Has Donald Trump become an Islamist?

The German magazine Der Spiegel published a recent issue with Donald Trump on the cover. He has a large butcher knife in one hand and the severed head of Lady Liberty in the other. It’s a provocative image. It seems to insinuate that Donald Trump has become an Islamist.

Islamists are the only people I know of who engage in decapitations of the people they don’t like or agree with.

It’s an absurd image to put on the cover of a magazine. Not because it’s vulgar, but because it is inaccurate. Donald Trump is not an Islamist. Donald Trump is not even Muslim, he is Presbyterian.

Donald Trump is not an enemy of liberty. Far from it. He believes in American liberty. He believes Americans have the right not to be victims of Islamist terror attacks. It is hard to pursue life, liberty, and happiness when you live under the threat of people from failed nation states coming here and killing you.

The last time I checked, emigrating to the United States is a privilege, not a right. A privilege should never usurp a right.

Even if Donald Trump wanted to kill Lady Liberty, he would not use a butcher knife, he would use a drone. That is the preferred presidential method of killing enemies. Ask Barack Obama.

I don’t support Donald Trump. I don’t like Donald Trump. I didn’t vote for Donald Trump. I reluctantly voted for Hillary Clinton. Is Donald Trump my president? According to the U.S. Constitution, yes he is.
