In your opinion has President Trump been good for Christians in the United States?
Why or why not?

Seems like he has not been able to be good for any American people ... seeing that from the first day as president he's had to face a coup and - as of now - appears to have been subjugated by the deep state (the angolo/zionist empire rulers, military/industrial complex and their paid for senate & congress representatives, secret agencies, etc)
The one good thing perhaps emerging is that the Clinton/Obama/ Bush regime sympathizers may see that the real enemy of the American people is not Trump, but those with whom they sided and for whom they voted who after all now are ruling the USA to its ruin in war over war ...

The will of God will be done with or without Trump.
He can be neither be bad for the kingdom of God in the form of impeding it's progress nor Good for it in expediting The second coming of Christ.God is God and it's all in his hand & timing.
That was the minister speaking....
In the flesh I feel he's been a moot character. I like his will to not give completely in to what's labeled progressive thinking in regards to gender identity and sexual immorality. However he's put a red Target on the country, but he hasn't labeled himself a believer so no reproach directly on Christian's in America....I say moot.

Time will tell. Anyway God is in control... nothing that is being done will rob the Godhead of His glory.

In my view, for a variety of reasons the answer to this question is a loud and desperate "No!" I'll cite just one of the many: Donald Trump is demonstrably the most prolific liar who has held the American presidency in my lifetime (60 years) and arguably is the most prolific liar we have EVER seen in the White House.
Politics and policy stances aside, Mr Trump's claim to be an active follower of Jesus must be called into question given his mendacity. I don't see how it can possibly be good for American Christians to have as their nation's chief executive someone who has such a well-documented track record of lying about anything and everything, at any time.
As a person who claims to follow Jesus, I reject the president as a role model of what it means to be a Christian, and I fear the long-term consequences of his term in office, not only for its policy initiatives, but for the impact his many character failures, including what seems to me to be an unmanaged bent toward pathological lying.
To be clear, though I am a strong and proud political progressive, to me, the president's mendacity is not a partisan matter. Had Barack Obama lied as Donald Trump lies, I would not have supported him. But he didn't - by orders of magnitude he didn't. NO American president lied like Mr Trump has. For that reason alone, it seems to me, his presidency is not good for American (or any other nationality's) Christians, and should be rejected by us.
