Trump’s String of Profanity Continues on the Presidential Campaign Trail

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, who was endorsed two weeks ago by Jerry Falwell, Jr., the president of what heralds itself as the world’s largest Christian university, stepped up his use of profanity this week while on the campaign trail in New Hampshire.

During his town hall rally in Portsmouth on Thursday, while speaking of companies that relocate overseas in order to receive tax breaks, Trump declared, “And you can tell them to go [expletive] themselves!”

Later, when decrying island-building in the South China Sea, he proclaimed that the Chinese are “ripping the [expletive] out of the sea,” which generated laughter from the audience.

He also spoke against Barack Obama’s trips Hawaii on Air Force One and subsequent golfing breaks, remarking, “I’d want to stay in the White House and work my [expletive] off.”
At a separate event in Exeter, Trump again used expletives in speaking of Washington politicians.

“I was going to say they’re full of [expletive],” he said, “but I won’t say it … because it’s too controversial, and of course it’s not politically correct.”

On Tuesday, in Miford, Trump repeated as he has on several occasions that if he were president, he would “bomb the [expletive]” out of ISIS.

ISIS is making a tremendous amount of money because they have certain oil camps, right? They have areas of oil that they took away. They have some in Syria, some in Iraq. I would bomb the [expletive] of ’em,” he declared to a cheering crowd. “I would just bomb those suckers. And that’s right, I’d blow up the pipes, … I’d blow up every single inch. There would be nothing left.”

Trump also remarked this week that if Ted Cruz obtains the Republican nomination, “they’re going to sue his [expletive] off,” due to controversy over his Canadian birth.

As previously reported, some have remarked that Trump has used more profanity than any other candidate they have seen run for the office of president.

“Over the course of his time on Twitter, including in some cases after he announced his presidential candidacy, Trump has tweeted or retweeted profanity on his account more than 100 times,” reported the Washington Post in December.

“[Trump’s swear] words render him unfit to be a presidential candidate, let alone president,” also wrote radio host Dennis Prager in a National Review article entitled “Donald Trump’s F-Bombs” in 2011. “Any fool can curse in public. … Leading Republicans need to announce that there is no place in the Republican party for profane public speech. You cannot stand for small government without standing for big people.”

Nonetheless, Jerry Falwell, Jr., the president of Liberty University, who endorsed Trump for the presidency two weeks ago and appeared at two Iowa campaign rallies with the candidate last weekend, has proclaimed before the thousands of students who attend the university and on national media that Trump’s life comports with Christianity.

“Matthew 7:16 tells us that ‘By your fruits you shall know them.’ Donald Trump’s life has borne fruit,” Falwell said last month during Trump’s visit to Liberty University to speak to students. “Fruit that has provided jobs to multitudes of people, in addition to the many he has helped with his generosity.”

“In my opinion, Mr. Trump lives a life of loving and helping others as Jesus taught in the Great Commandment,” he declared.

Falwell made similar comments to Fox talk show host Sean Hannity that same day.

“He may not be a theological expert and he might say two Corinthians instead of second Corinthians, but when you look at the fruits of his life and all the people he’s provided jobs, I think that’s the true test of somebody’s Christianity not whether or not they use the right theological terms,” he contended.

But other Christian university presidents, such as Dr. Everett Piper of Oklahoma Wesleyan University, have stated that it is because Trump’s life does not comport with Christianity that they will not support the candidate nor invite him to speak to students.

“Anyone who calls women ‘pigs,’ ‘ugly,’ ‘fat’ and ‘pieces of [expletive]’ is not on my side,” Piper said in a blog on the university website. “Anyone who has been on the cover of Playboy and proud of it, who brags of his sexual history with multiple women and who owns strip clubs in his casinos is not on my side.”

“I refuse to let my desire to win ‘trump’ my moral compass,” he continued. “I will not sell my soul or my university’s to a political process that values victory more than virtue. No, Donald Trump will not be speaking at Oklahoma Wesleyan University.”

    I would still prefer him over anyone on the other side but using language like that is unacceptable and would not be a good thing coming from the President of our country. As this however IS how Americans speak, I’m not sure the majority of people are going to find that a problem. I have some Christian friends who support him and if THEY do, I fear the rest will.

    One often uses profanity because of anger at something and it concerns me that our future President would get us into a whole lot of trouble for that reason alone.

    His ‘morals’ or lack of them in many areas is also a concern for me…..I hope he is NOT the candidate for the Republicans but if he is and goes on to be president, I pray he would speak and act in a manner worthy of his title.

      Interesting that when antichrist comes he will speak blasphemies. True men and women of God speak without profanity Psalm 50: 23. Wouldn’t it be great if all Christians took the stand that Dr. Piper is taking?

      Sorry that you are not aware of what is going on in the world today. Kid’s now day’s would make a sailor blush when they are only 5. Trump was not running for office when all the F’s S” P’ A h” came about. Look to all the rap singer’s that your kid’s adore for that. You let them listen to all the crap, then when an adult uses the word shit, you freak out.. Well Trump and ALL the rest do know how to say the bad word’s. Trump just uses them, where the other POLITICAL correct try and trash him for it. People like you probably voted this Black person into office, that has destroyed this country. We have had enough of the Bushes, and the rest of the pack are lying through their teeth. They are a joke. just look at how many times they also change their mind’s, IF and When the vote.

        Charles – your need to attack others is apparent. Your comment is way out of line and baseless. If you cannot moderate your attitude better than this you will be banned.

    I agree exactly with catlover60. By the way I am a great cat lover myself. Trump is missing the mark by a long shot as far as someone who has been “transformed” as the Bible says a real Christian is. He is what he is. The mix of candidates is interesting.

      Yes Trump is trying to play his hand to appeal to all. I won’t say he does not believe in God but he does not in any way act like someone who has been saved by Christ.

        Boy I wish I could see into your past, as well as some of the other’s. Bet It’s not all roses. I have found that most of the people that say that they are Christian, are the first ones to lie, cheat, and screw you over. Known many a preacher, and I wouldn’t trust a one. Go to confession, and tell the child molester your sin’s.. Wow.

          Hi Charles, there are many of us that have pasts that are not all roses including me. Unfortunately you are correct, there are many a “Christian” who do what you say. But then are they really Christians? I don’t have that answer. I can tell you not all are bad and lumping all Christians together into one mold is rather unfair. Neither are all Catholic priests child abusers. As for confession – confessing sin needs to be done to our Father in heaven – not a man on earth who cannot forgive anything.
          Your comment has little to do with Trump, I don’t hate the guy but if he wants to be president then the bar is set a little higher, comes with the job. Do you want a half-cocked hot-head sitting in the president’s chair? I don’t.

    As a Christian man I have learned that I am not in a place to judge others. However, the Bible does say that we will know each other by our “fruit”. During his entire campaign I have been amazed that “evangelicals” are supportive of Mr. Trump. He said in an interview that he has never asked God for forgiveness, then he calls “second” Corinthians “two” Corinthians. Pretty much any other Christian I have ever met knows to call the books First and Second Corinthians. Then he used terrible language in front of children in attendance at his rallies. To me, that is not presidential behavior. Thanks for allowing me to vent. God bless our country. We need it
