The antichrist

The antichrist  is someone recognized as fulfilling the biblical prophecies about one who will oppose Christ and substitute himself in Christ's place.
The term (including one plural form)  New Testament, The antichrist is announced as the one "who denies the Father and the Son."
The similar term "false Christ" is found in the Gospels. In Matthew (chapter 24) and Mark (chapter 13), Jesus alerts his disciples not to be deceived by the false prophets, which will claim themselves as being Christ, performing "great signs and wonders".
The antichrist is usually referred to a very popular world leader that will save us all. This leader usually refers to himself as the “chosen one.’
I am the chosen one,” Donald Trump told reporters on Wednesday. He looked up to the heavens as he said this, CNBC reports, so perhaps he truly believes that God anointed him to win a trade war with China, which he also started. He also saved us from a war with Iran that he almost started, etc, etc, etc. In addition, Trump mocked and disparaged Jesus Christ's Sermon on the Mount, a blasphemy of unspeakable proportions,  to us Catholics, 

An old wise man once said: “Satan walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Satan is devious, and his works can be found anywhere.” Trump could indeed be his agent, and that would make him the antichrist.
