Since Donald Trump became the 45th president of the United States, the American left seems to have lost its mind.
Violent protests in the streets and attacks on Trump supporters.
The attempted assassination of a Republican congressman.
Threats to murder the president, including calls by well-known left-wing activists for "jihad" and gory depictions of Trump's severed head.
Conspiracy theories about Russian plots.
And hysterical rhetoric about a "resistance" dedicated to overthrowing the duly elected commander in chief.
The bottom line is Trump is facing not merely conventional political opposition.
One talk-show host, former law-enforcement officer and current pastor believes President Trump is facing nothing less than full-fledged spiritual warfare. Pastor Carl Gallups was one of President Trump's earliest and most vocal Christian backers. And he contends the opposition to Trump is demonic.
In his new book "When the Lion Roars," Gallups analyzes the signs of the times, showing how harbingers of the last days can be seen in the daily headlines. And in recent media appearances, he's contending the depraved opposition to the president was predicted in the Scriptures.
"The Bible speaks in the last days of being given over to a depraved mind, of truth being thrown to the ground, eventually there will come the man of lawlessness, who the world will gather around and say ... this man is like God," the pastor recently said on "The Jim Bakker Show." "There will be a generation like us that sees that, I don't know if it's us, but this is what I'm saying, it's complex. This is what's happening before our eyes ... truth has been turned upside-down."
Gallups suggested the country itself is under demonic attack.
