JD: Let’s talk about some of the things we need to reflect on, I guess the main story would be Donald Trump and his phenomenon, his election to become president of the United States; from a TV personality all the way to the most powerful position in this world today. Talk to me about this phenomenon.
KT: Well and its something the national media here in the United States completely missed they did not understand what was going on and people were fed up, the media missed it. Donald Trump connected with the American people in a way that traditional republican politicians have failed to do.
JD: But at the same time Christians continue to work, they pray for their leadership and they work in reality that the rapture of the church could take place this year, and so we need to continue on and not sit back on our blessed assurance.
Well there’s another personality including Donald Trump that has been talked about a lot in 2016, that’s Vladimir Putin. I don’t know if there’s going to be a relationship between Trump and Putin or not but, Vladimir Putin continues to increase in his power for example let’s look at the Middle East; there in Syria he’s not a fading flower, he’s actively involved in doing what needs to be done to prop up Bashar Assad.
KT: Well that’s right and what we’ve seen over the past four years under President Obama is really the expansion of Russian power. Russia now is extending its influence into Iran, into Egypt where they have a new relationship with General Al Sisi. They now have military bases in Syria and they’re looking for bases elsewhere in the Mediterranean. This is an extraordinary phenomenon it was not something that you would have thought could have happened if you were looking at the world in January of 2009 when Obama took office; Russia was beaten back and their economy was in a tatter so the Russians have really expanded their influence, their cause, and with rising oil prices they will repair their economy and be able to carry out these massive military modernization programs that you and I have spoken of from time to time. Putin has pledged to spend 650 billion dollars over the next 10 years building new generations of Russian ballistic missile submarines, nuclear missile submarines, strategic bombers, and other strategic weaponry.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin will be major players in 2017 because God uses human government and human governmental leaders to direct this world into the future, that’s Revelation 17:17.
