President Trump has claimed for years to be the victim of a hugh “Witch Hunt,” but this time he may be right! Thousands of self-proclaimed Witches across the country say they will be gathering Halloween night to cast a “binding spell” in President Trump.
According to reports, the spell is meant to “bind the President, but not harm him like a curse or a hex.” The witches believe they’re doing something positive for the country by not allowing Trump to harm the U.S. with his actions.
Such reports of witchcraft being used against the President are nothing new. Witches have been trying to cast spells against Trump since his inauguration in 2017. Last year, a 13-thousand member Facebook group cast a series of spells on the President.
Witches have been increasingly politically active since Trump was elected. A year ago, a throng of real-life witches was fighting back against the administration by hosting a spell-casting ritual against newly appointed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in New York.
According to CBN News, witchcraft has been steadily on the rise in the US since the 1990s. Trinity College in Connecticut tracked witchcraft’s prevalence for some 18 years. Researchers found that in 1990, there were an estimated 8,000 Wiccans in the US. That number grew to 340,000 in 2008.
The Pew Research Center later discovered in 2014 that 0.4% of Americans, or about 1 to 1.5 million people, identify as Wicca or Pagan.
Father Vincent Lampert, a Roman Catholic priest and the designated exorcist of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, warned that those who practice rituals of witchcraft and the occult more broadly give an opening to evil in the lives of participants.
“Some of them may be doing it thinking it’s just fun, but they are gambling with evil, and just because their motive is one way doesn’t mean they’re not opening up an entry point for evil in their own life,” Lampert told The Washington Examiner.
Lampert also warned those who practice witchcraft to beware of a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
“I think evil will present itself as something good, maybe initially to attract people’s attention, to draw people in, but then ultimately people are going to discover it’s all about fracturing their lives,” he said.
