Nostradamus Predicted The Rise Of Trump Over 400 Years Ago

Donald Trump will be the 45th President of the United States and the world is left wondering why we didn’t see this coming.

Against all the odds, Trump pipped Hillary to the post but some prophetic souls did predict the rise and rise of Trump, right the way to the top as future leader of the Free World.

Years before Trump roamed the earth in his private jet, and centuries before The Simpsons writers predicted his Presidency, Nostradamus called it.

The 14th century French apothecary and reputed seer wrote:

The great shameless, audacious bawler. He will be elected governor of the army: The boldness of his contention.

The bridge broken, the city faint from fear.

Many have drawn the pretty obvious and timely comparison between the President-elect and this ‘shameless, audacious bawler’, but even more concerning is another passage that consistently refers to a ‘trumpet concealing madness’

It reads:

The false trumpet concealing madness will cause Byzantium to change its laws.

The reference to the Ancient Greek colony of Byzantium seems to link directly to the influx of Greek refugees and Trumps anti-immigration stance, upon which he arguably won the Presidency for the Republicans.

Conspiracy theorists, who believe Nostradamus predicted the dictatorial rule of Napoleon and Hitler also believe Trump is the ‘third anti-Christ’ referenced in his writings.

According to Nostradamus, the coming of this doomed figured will trigger the Apocalypse, and Twitter have reacted with its usual bluster.

While these individuals are busy tweeting, I’m off to ready the bunker.

Whether Trump is the anti-Christ set to trigger the end of the world or not, I’m still absolutely done with 2016 and plan to begin hibernation immediately.
