Donald Trump and King David as ‘Flawed’ Leaders in Recent Political Discourse


One definition of wisdom as the ability to see to the end of a matter. In many ways, the comparison between Trump and David is only too apt, sans any of David’s godly qualities.  To suggest that Trump, like King David, has flaws but can carry America to the heights of greatness misses the direction of David’s life and nation in the wake of his ‘flaws,’ which only began with his mistreatment of a woman and a foreign man, but eventually tore through the whole nation. I dare say that two supreme court justices couldn’t even offset those effects.
