I have been surprised at the number of times people have used scripture to defend Mr Trump’s presidency.
The Consent of the Governed: Why I Criticize President Donald Trump
Bryson Alley

Hi — I’m a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I really considered cutting this section or making it more widely applicable, but I decided my primary purpose with this essay was to explain my own feelings and reasonings, not to persuade others to feel the same. So I decided to keep the references that are uniquely LDS, because it is a large part of why I feel the way I do. But while the wording of the scriptures might be uniquely LDS, I think the prophecies and principles are common in most religions.
