Donald J. Trump: Freemason Or Not?

"You have to think anyway, so why not think big?"

~Donald Trump
45th President of the United States

Never in American history has the result of a Presidential election come to such a shocking conclusion than did the election of 2016, when Donald Trump, to the stunned surprise of millions, defeated Hillary Clinton.  Perhaps the reason it was so surprising, was that Hillary Clinton had been favored to win the election from the beginning, and all the polling had supported the foregone conclusion that Clinton would easily win.  Everybody was wrong.  The unorthodox Trump campaign delivered a populist message that resonated with an electorate that was sick of "business as usual" politics by electing a complete outsider to the nation's highest office.

The outspoken real estate billionaire has been in the public eye for more than thirty years, most recently for owning the Miss America Pageant, and for his popular television show The Apprentice.  After announcing his candidacy for President, Donald Trump went on to defeat 17 Republican challengers, including some of the party's best and brightest, to win the Republican nomination.

There will most likely never be a campaign as ugly as the Presidential Campaign of 2016--lets hope not.  It was a free-for-all of both Republicans and Democrats against Donald Trump, and yet in the end, Trump prevailed.  They will be studying this election for years to come, but in the end, Donald Trump did a better job connecting with those who mattered--the American people.

There have been a number of reports that Donald Trump is a Freemason, and suggestions have been made since the election that the Freemasons were behind the shocking election results.  In fact, a number of nude statues of Donald Trump by Las Vegas based sculpture, Ginger (aka Joshua Monroe) appeared in a few major cities during the primary campaign.  One of the most interesting things about those distasteful statues was the fact that Donald Trump was clearly wearing a Masonic ring.

However the truth of the matter is, Donald Trump is not a Freemason.

    You gave up your age. The election of Ronald Reagan and his defeat of Jimmy Carter was far more dramatic. Jimmy Carter was favored by the media to win and Reagan won by a true landslide with nearly all the Electoral College votes and two thirds of the popular vote.

    As for Trump's ring, why not just ask him where he got it? Many people who don't fully understand what Freemasonry is will inherit nice Masonic jewelry. They wear it because it has family meaning or because they think it looks neat.

    1. The ring was on a sculpture he had nothing to do with. I've never seen a photograph of him wearing a ring or a lapel pin.

  2. The artist has said he put the ring on the statue to symbolize the unseen / unknown business dealings and relationships he has.

    1. Obviously the symbolism was missed. If you put "Is Donald Trump a Freemason" in a Google search, you'll find tens of thousands of hits, and in many of those the fact that statue was wearing that ring was cited.

  3. Also hate to nitpick, but he is not the 45th President until he is sworn in. Semantics really, but irked me nonetheless.

    1. I've been writing these "Freemason Or Not?" pieces for a very long time . . . there are thirty of them going back nearly a decade You can read the first ones on here still today. Posts stay up indefinitely. I'm aware he's not the President until he's sworn in, but he will be, and I won't have to remember to go back and change it. That was intentional. People that nitpick little details like this are the same ones that will nitpick the details if I forget to change it and still have him listed as "President elect" two days after the swearing in. It's always been easier to criticize than create. Do you know who said that?

    2. Well for the nittpickers, he can't be sworn in until he is elected on Dec 19th, but I agree with Todd here.

  4. According to artist Ginger, "the Masonic ring is emblematic of privilege, secret handshakes and cloistered groups of powerful people." It is therefore an artistic and fictional rendition of a popular misconception and prejudice.

    1. A subtle use of symbology missed by the masses and have lead to massive speculation about his affiliation with the Craft. In the age of information, we don't use that information to check facts . . . sadly.

    2. BR JD Turin Lodge #337 I keep seeing how our President Donald J Trump is supposed to be a Freemason and have yet to see real proof. And believe me if he were a member of our Lodge it would be widely known among freemasons.

    Listen to Gioele Magaldi, from the UR Lodge Thomas Paine.

  6. Who cares if DJT is or not, not everything needs to be known, all that matters is that President Trump leads not only The USA but the World with NWO in mind and takes his lead from those with insight
