Trump is a part of God’s plan – Denzel Washington

Academy winning actor, Denzel Washington has called on youth across the world not to lose their faith in the perilous times of social media.

Washington also said President Donald Trump is not to blame for the divisiveness and anger in today’s society, saying there would be a need for this generation to unite like never before.

“I would say to your generation — find a way to work together because this is a very divisive, angry time you’re living in, unfortunately, because we didn’t grow up like that,” the 62-year-old told Christian Post in an interview.

In his new film, “Roman J. Israel, Esq.,” Washington plays a lawyer named Roman J. Israel who has been fighting the good fight while others take the credit. “He finds out some unsettling things about what the crusading law firm he worked for has done that run afoul of his values of helping the poor and dispossessed, and he finds himself in an existential crisis that leads to extreme action,” the film’s synopsis says.

He maintained that 20 years ago life was all about the information age but said things have changed greatly because of social media, such as Twitter and Facebook.

“I Google, I’m the Google master when I need information,” the New York native confessed. “With this character, I studied Aspergers but I didn’t go on social network.”

Washington said that while he was on set filming for the movie, a fan put up a photo of him in character on social media. He could not believe how mean-spirited the comments were — criticizing his image, his weight, etc.

“You can’t blame anyone, including the president,” He insisted. “It’s the age that we are in and we have to look at what’s happening to us before it’s too late.”

Washington added that Pastor A.R. Bernard, senior pastor of Christian Cultural Center in Brooklyn, New York, once shared with him  Daniel chapter 10 from the Bible, saying, “‘God puts leaders in place for a reason and a season.'”

“There’s a reason, you may not like what’s going on but the boss has a reason,” Washington asserted while he pointed up to God in Heaven.

“I pray for your generation,” Washington passionately declared while holding onto this reporter’s shoulder and charging millennials to keep sharing truth and hope with the world. “What an opportunity you have! Don’t be depressed by it because we have to go through this, we’re here now. You can’t put that thing back in the box.”
