Jefferson would not think much of Trump

Most people would concede that the author of the Declaration of Independence and the third president of the United States, Thomas Jefferson, was a very intelligent person.

How did he treat his consideration of the Bible and Jesus Christ? He disregarded the mystic and the spin and paid attention only to the words and actions of Jesus.

Now let’s evaluate President Donald Trump with the same method. Disregard the spin from both sides, Fox News and CNN, and only pay attention to Trump’s words and actions. What conclusions can you draw from your observations? Be honest. Would Jefferson approve of the words and actions of President Trump?

Of course, most of us are not as intelligent as Thomas Jefferson for he was quite unique. Now consider Trump’s campaign statement, “I love the uneducated.”
