To be such super Christians, Trump supporters don’t seem to know the Bible very well. All through the book there are lessons about how to treat people, how God troubles those who don’t treat their brothers and sisters in Christ as Christ would have them to, etc. Psalm 7:15-16 (KJV) even says:
‘He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made. His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate.’
In lay terms, the seventh Psalm simply means that people should be careful about the holes they dig for others, for those may be the holes in which the digger falls in and meets his/her own demise. Despite the manner in which they seem to love throwing the Bible at others, Trump supports skim right over parts that prophesied the very reasons why they should’ve been more careful in their decision to vote for Donald Trump.
From tax reform to health care, in just shy of seven months, Donald Trump has shown that the only interests he wants to protect are his own, and those of his wealthy brethren. Now it seems that another core tenet of his campaign, the Mexican border wall, may also have some painful side-effects for Trump supporters. For some American homeowners who live along various stretches of the U.S./Mexico border, the wall will literally put them outside of the U.S.
While this story seems too good to be true, it’s not, it’s very true and now some Trump supporters who previously advocated for the wall are fuming mad. People like Pat Bell are saying they’ll lawyer up if Trump’s wall leaves them boxed out, but at the rate Donald Trump is moving forward with wall plans, people like Bell may be out of luck or still tied up in litigation while Trump moves forward with his wall.
Bell moved to Brownsville, TX over 20 years ago. To her, the resort community in which she lives was Bell’s own dream come true, “heaven,” as she put it. Bell’s “heaven” is turning to hell, though. Trump’s wall is going to bisect Bell’s resort community thus leaving 70% of the subdivision on the Mexican side of the wall.
The solution to the problem Bell and her neighbors are facing? The Trump administration could seize the homes, another reality that Trump-supporting Bell and her like-minded neighbors aren’t happy about.
