While the Donald Trump administration continues to coalesce and plan for the future, the world is wondering how very few saw his victory in the 2016 election coming. Most pundits, polls, and politicians simply didn’t expect it.

There was, however, one who might have seen the Donald coming… and he did so way back in the 16th century. That’s right: famed French psychic Michel de Nostredame—better known as Nostradamus—may have predicted that this was going to happen. And he had a serious warning for when it did.

After correctly predicting (as some believe) the Great Fire of London, the French Revolution, World War II, and 9/11, it’s possible that legendary psychic Nostradamus may have predicted Donald Trump’s infamous rise to power—at least, according to folks on the always-reliable internet.


Nostradamus’s prophecies included this line: “The great shameless, audacious bawler. He will be elected governor of the army: The boldness of his contention.” Sound familiar?


Here, the “shameless, audacious bawler” is thought to represent Trump.

Nostradamus continues: “The bridge broken, the city faint from fear.”


“The false trumpet concealing madness will cause Byzantium to change its laws.”


Some think this line may refer to refugees, and Trump’s plan to keep them out.

Unsure? Others seem quite convinced.

The Simpsons also predicted Trump’s rise, but Nostradamus may have beaten them to it!

Let’s just hope Nostradamus’s “Great Red One” isn’t actually the Donald…

Is Donald Trump the antichrist? Will he bring doom unto the Earth? In all likelihood, no. On the other hand, he is very orange and his entire campaign was based around a red hat, so we may as well consider this an open-and-shut case. Pack it up, everyone! Earth is over, time to move onto a new thing.
