Did Nostradamus predict Trump's victory ?

Who really predicted Trump's victory ? Image Credit: CC BY-SA 3.0 Gage Skidmore
Both modern day and historical prophets may have foreseen the Republican candidate's rise to power.
With the unexpected victory of Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton in the US election, a great deal of criticism has been leveled at the polls which had long predicted a very different outcome.

But what if Trump's success actually had been predicted, not within the last few months, but years or even centuries ago by individuals who had nothing to do with the election campaign whatsoever ?

This is the controversial view being shared by a growing number of people who believe that 16th century French prophet Nostradamus had foreseen these events hundreds of years ago.

Among his vast array of predictions are references to a "great shameless, audacious bawler" who "will be elected governor of the army" and render "the city faint from fear."
Some believe that these words are a reference to Trump and that it also foreshadows WWIII.

Another prophet, the Bulgarian psychic Baba Vanga who died in 1996, has also gained something of a following after accurately predicting events that occurred after her death including the 9/11 attacks, the rise of the Islamic State and the fact that the 44th US president would be African-American.

She also predicted that Obama would be the last US president - another possible hint of WWIII.

But are these really references to recent events or are people simply looking too hard to connect vague predictions from the past to what is happening in the present ?

It's no secret that Nostradamus wrote a huge amount of material during his lifetime. If you look hard enough at his writings you can usually find predictions that reference just about anything.

Yes he did, also St Malachi last two of 112 popes double visions he substracted, because he saw a different building behind the last two that is not the Vatican. It was the white house.

If Nostradamus did predict Trump's victory, then why is the same quatrain supposed to have predicted earlier events?

It's either that or history repeating itself. An earlier use of the quatrain deals with John Boehner getting elected and not it means Trump gets elected. It will probably also be used to mean that Queen Nancy will step down.

A prediction that the city of Damascus, Syria, would become a heap of ruins (overnight) where sheep would wander and not need to fear anything.  That sounds like a place with no people. Predicted 2600 years ago, never happened yet.   A group of nations, including one from the "uttermost north" of Israel (Russia and or Turkey)along with Persia, Ethiopia and Libya, would come against Israel in the "latter days" but will be destroyed supernaturally.  That one definitely hasn't come about yet.  If it happens and the naysayers still reject the idea of a God that knows the future ahead of time,...

Nostradamus was the ultimate cold reading for a world filled with cities, states and regions with varying alliances and intrigue which would impact the man on the ground. Not that he is a fraud or cold readings are always fake because one can spoil the genuine easily but harder is turning the fake into real. Nostradamus was a folk prophet and healer in the same vain as others less known but who fulfilled both offices. He turned petty politics into a good will blessing for ages to come. Look to those who spread news that heals for modern equivalents.

Century III, Quatrain 81:   Note that the quatrain doesn't say that the "bawler" (which, by the way, means someone who weeps loudly in public) is shameless or audacious in a bad way, whether he is responsible for the breaking of the bridge or whether he is causing the "city" to be "faint from fear". I was going to write a long list of possible candidates, but it's pretty pointless since the list of possible, elective officials with military power that could fit that quatrain is astronomically high. This is extremely vague, like all of Nostradamus' predictions. And, also like all of his predic... [More]

The Nostradamus quatrains are basically POSTdictions rather then PREdictions. Like the book of Revelations in the Bible it ia all phrased in such a nebulous fashion that  mostly what you got out of it is a bunch of wild speculations and then after something happens someone finds a quatrain that sort of lines up with it and "TRA DA see, he predicted it!!" A real prediction is only worthwhile when it tells you about something in the future in a way that allows you to know what is going to happen BEFORE it happens.  In general I prefer to make my own quatrains and predictions and actually run a...
