Seven Deadly Sins And An American President

Since before the election of President Donald J. Trump in 2016, he as an American businessman, has been a household name. Through television shows, movies and books we were thrown into the elite and luxurious lifestyle of Trump.

He claims to be the best businessman and negotiator of all time, basically the best at everything, even though we know that is not true. As Americans, we’ve failed to read between the lines, and failed to listen to what is not being said by Trump.

On his journey to presidency we didn’t question him, his lifestyle or success. We didn’t take a stand against him and we didn’t take him seriously.

The signs were there, the seven deadly sins: Pride, Envy, Gluttony, Lust, Anger, Greed and Sloth.

He’s considered to be a man of faith and now he’s considered the most powerful man of the free world. How blinded and delusional are we as human beings that now he’s our President?

It is now 2018, and former President Barack Obama, along with other world leaders, have become Trump’s platform to desecrate our democracy. This should be a concern to us all – citizens, immigrants and allies.

Trump is not a failed president, but a failed man trying to be president who has no remorse and could care less about you and I.

This shouldn’t be a shock to you, but Trump is a walking sinner and proud of it while giving the finger to Americans and immigrants alike.


Trump fuels his ego on how he is never wrong even if he has lied about it. Since being in office, Trump has lied more than 3,000 times to Americans and the world, all while claiming to being a winner.


With consuming fast food on a regular basis and even talking about how chocolate cake is lovely, Trump won’t take his health into consideration even to the point of writing his own medical report, so it can appear to look as if he’s healthy.


From pornstar Stormy Daniels to dating his daughter and talks about adultery, Trump has made himself the poster boy for pleasures of the body. His interest in women is only seen as a piece of ass he can smash.   


From his self-proclaimed best memory to the greatest brain and highest I.Q., Trump should have no reason to envy people. However, he does. He constantly compares himself to Obama, Hillary Clinton and anyone else who questions him.


When Trump throws a Twitter tantrum, he discredits himself to his allies, the world and Americans. He attacked Senator John McCain and claimed there is a so-called witch hunt against him. He believes that the NFL players shouldn’t take part in recognizing social injustice in America.


Despite Trump’s claims on Obama’s failures, Obama’s progression for America did get things done. Trump is slow and snail-like when it comes to health care reform, coal jobs, ban on people of certain color and religion, which never received the momentum he assumed. Along with constant weekend golf trips, cable news obsession and sedentary lifestyle we shouldn’t take long to see who Trump really is, yet here we are.  


He is greedy in his personal obsession with money and his self-worth, which he continuously boast about. Along with lawsuits, ethic violations and frivolous spending of taxpayers money has resulted in numerous resignations from his administration. Trump’s greed has failed his presidency.

We all make mistakes, sin and hurt others in which we all face a turning point in our life to change who we are. To make right all the wrongs we’ve done, but this guy, Trump, openly and continuously sins and undermines democracy.
