These passages from Nostradamus are proof that he ‘predicted’ a Trump victory in 2016, apparently, according to a report in the Independent.
Michel de Nostradame, (latinised to: Nostradamus) was a French ‘seer’ who died in 1566 and wrote over a thousand predictions about the coming centuries, contained in Les Propheties.
He wrote these as four line poems, organised into ‘quatrains’. Les Propheties was published as 10 volumes, each referred to as a ‘century’.
The seer has been credited with predicting World War Two and the 11 September Attacks on New York City.
Some believe that Century III, quatrain 81 refers to the 2016 presidential election.
Le grand criard sans honte audacieux,
Sera esleu gouuerneur de l’armee:
La hardiesse de son contenteur
Le pont rompu, cité de pur pasmee.
The great shameless, audacious bawler,
He will be elected governor of the army:
The boldness of his contention,
The bridge broken, the city faint from fear
That sounds about right. Especially given that in addition to being president after 20 January 2017, Trump will also be the Commander-in-Chief.
Other predictions from Nostradamus have also been related to the 2016 US presidential election.
In Century VIII, quatrain 15 he writes
The masculine woman will exert herself to the north
She will annoy nearly all of Europe and the rest of the world.
Two failures will put her in such an imbalance
That both life and death will strengthen Eastern-Europe
Not to be rude, but some have suggested the ‘masculine woman’ is Hillary, and the stronger Eastern Europe is Russia?
Quatrain 20 from the same century speaks about a rigged election
The false message about the rigged election
to run through the city stopping the broken pact;
voices bought, chapel stained with blood,
the empire contracted to another one
Perhaps a reference to the alignment between Trump and Vladimir Putin’s foreign policy?
Only time can prove these predictions right or wrong.
