Was Donald J. Trump appointed by God?

As the President-elect would say, some people are asking.

When one starts typing “Trump appointed” into Google, one of the first suggestions is “Trump appointed by god”.

Contrary to popular query, Trump was affirmed by the U.S. Electoral College, not God, with 304 electoral votes on December 19, 2016.
