A great many books have been written about Donald Trump by friend and foe alike. These include Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man by Mary L Trump; How Trump Thinks: His Tweets and the Birth of a New Political Language by Peter Oborne and Tom Roberts; American Carnage: On the Front Lines of the Republican Civil War and the Rise of President Trump by Tim Alberta; A Very Stable Genius: Donald J Trump’s Testing of America by Philip Rucker and Carol Leonnig. There are many, many others: the #TrumpBooks family. These are all non-fiction.

Interestingly, there have never been any novels written about Donald Trump, or only novels that contain vague allusions to the dastardly Trump, including #ThePlotAgainstAmerica, by Philip Roth, which, in reality, predates the Trump era.

In composing a query to Bing AI, I quickly discovered that I am the only person (!?!) to have written a fictional work that concerns Donald Trump. Perhaps demonstrating the old axiom that truth is stranger than fiction. Except, in my case, it isn’t. To understand what I mean, please read the novel.

You might also think that the term #pagan has been used to describe Donald Trump much more often than it seems to have been. This, also, is not the case. But I think that this is only in major media outlets, where the word “pagan” is far too inflammatory. I think a greater mystery is just how many evangelical Christians consider trump to be a pagan, but simply don’t care. Perhaps the tide is turning in favor of paganism. But some might argue, no, no, the people you are referring to aren’t Christians, but #MAGA followers, and that there is a profound difference between the two. I would agree, if you define as Christian someone who truly adheres to Christian beliefs, but these so-called Christians do not. Instead, they adhere to #MAGA beliefs and call them Christian beliefs. And because they worship at the feet of Donald Trump, they are, in reality, pagans.

For anyone who doubts what I am saying, please read the New York Times article listed below. It provides a frightening look inside the Trump temple.
