"And after they were brought to Babylon" - IF Elected as President after JFK, Clinton or Obama

IF Elected as President after JFK, Clinton, or Obama

The world changed drastically with the Vietnam War after WWII.

The Vietnam War seems to have been ominously promised in the wake of the assassination of President Kennedy in 1963.  Through the Vietnam War, the moral code of the US radically changed, triggering the collapse of the traditional value system throughout the world.

Then the IT revolution or the Internet revolution in late 1990s caused another big moral change in the US along with the presidency of Bill Clinton who admired JFK so much.  However, soon after the end of the Clinton Administration, the US was directly attacked by Al Qaeda led by Osama bin Laden.  The terrorist group was expanding its activities while Bill Clinton was in the White House.  The 9/11 Terror of 2001 totally changed the paradigm on security in the US and the West.

Finally in 2008 the first African American President Barack Obama was elected.  Obama was strongly supported by the Kennedy family though he competed with Hillary Clinton to be the Democratic presidential nominee.   The significance of Obama's presidency was not so flashy as the preceding cases of JFK and Bill Clinton.  But, the boom of liberalism could be felt through the world.  The rights of minorities have never been loudly claimed and supported than through Obama's presidency that is leading to date.  However, under Obama's presidency featured by rather internal focus, Islamic terrorists have aggravated the situations in the Middle East, especially in Syria.  Also China has come to boldly exhibit its ambition to behave as a military and economic aggressive power in Asia.

In this sequence of US Presidents from the Democratic Party tells something interesting or alarming: JFK to the Vietnam War, Bill Clinton to the Islamic terror, and Barack Obama to the rise of IS and China.  

However, those who have had strong ties with the Republican Party must have been working behind these Democratic presidencies, whose influences might have just contributed to the wars and the crises that have been related to JFK, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama.  Both the parties are responsible for this sequence of the American security and moral crises.

In this context, the next US President is expected to be from the Republicans to take, as usual, actual command in the situation left by the Democratic presidency like Nixon for the Vietnam War and W. Bush for the War on Terror.

So, we may ask whether or not Trump and other Republican candidates understand what they might face if elected as US President.

Mat 1:11 And Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon:
Mat 1:12 And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel;
