Trump Blames "Act of God" for Economic Woes
Donald Trump is trying his hand at theology. Trump was sued last week by a German bank for failing to make a loan payment. In recent court filings, Trump cited the "Act of God" clause in his contract as sufficient reason for missing the payment and needing an extension. The court will now have to decide if God has sufficient fault in the recent market problems to warrant the blame Trump is now placing at God's feet.
This clause, typically reserved for unexpected fires and weather related phenomenon, might not be completely unreasonable if we take a good look at biblical history.
