Perhaps something that you would not expect from Donald Trump. In a speech, at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, on February 2, he told the crowed “America is a nation of believers.”Emphasized is importance of spirituality.

“In towns all across our land, it is plain to see what we so easily forget;so easily we forget this that the quality of our lives is not defined by our material success but by our spiritual success. I will tell you that and I tell you that from somebody that has had material success and knows tremendous numbers of people with great material success. Many of those people are very very miserable,unhappy people…” Said Trump.

His policy measures including anti-immigration one distinguished him,it seems the case,perhaps as the most unpopular president already. In light of that, it is imaginable that the last thing people want to hear about could be Trump.

But this specific speech of Donald Trump,to his credit,assuming that it truly reflects his feeling,is laded with words common among motivational speakers,healers,spiritual leaders -from all religious traditions -, and philosophers. And it is true. As a person,he said it, with material success and acquaintances with other wealthy people, the likelihood of familiarity with misery in the ocean of material wealth and affluence is real. That is why his words need not be ignored just because they are words of hated president.

Whether his views will influence social policy in posterity is something that remains to be seen.
