The billionaire businessman strolled Super Tuesday this week by winning key states in his bid for the Republican party nomination. But the hotelier and television personality has caused controversy with his views on immigration and his proposal to ban Muslims entering the US.
There’s no denying his relentless bid for the presidency has got some parts of the country – and even the globe – spooked by the vision of the wild-haired frontrunner leading the most powerful nation in the world.
Crazy conspiracy theories popped up as soon as Trump announced he would be running for president and they show no sign of fizzing away.
Here Daily Star Online gives you a taste of some of the weirdest, crackpot claims out there.
The strange sounds spooking the world is a warning of Donald Trump’s presidential win – and the dawn of the apocalypse
Last year there were hundreds of reports of an unknown sound popping up in cities around the world.
Even in January, a strange, trumpet-like noise was heard in the Netherlands, Morocco and in Bristol.
This trumpet noise, some online conspiracists believe, is warning the world of Donald Trump – which is similar to the word trumpet – taking over the planet and the impending apocalypse.
Trump’s trumpet is the harbinger of the end of the world, it is claimed, and was predicted in the bible as the First Four Trumpets of the Revelation.
The passage reads:
"6. And the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound them
"7. The first sounded, and there came hail and fire, mixed with blood, and they were thrown to the earth, and a third of the earth was burned up, and a third of the trees were burned up, and the grass was burned up.
"8. The second angel sounded, and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood."
Meanwhile, a Christian minister in Florida called Jeremiah Johnson is a big fan of Trump and claims the Holy Spirit spoked to him about the New Yorker.
The Holy Spirit is claimed to have told him: “Trump shall become my trumpet to the American people, for he possesses the qualities that are even hard to find in my people these days.
“I am going to use him to expose darkness and perversion in America like never before, but you must understand that he is like a bull in a China closet.”
Donald Trump is a plant by the Clintons
So many people have been floored by Trump’s huge popularity that some believe his role in the race to the White House has been set up by the Clinton family.
Articles have appeared online suggesting the real estate magnate was encouraged to run for the Republican hot seat to destroy the party from the inside.
It’s alleged Trump has close ties to both former president Bill and his wife Hillary, who is fighting to be the Democratic party candidate.
In a blog post by Justin Raimondo, he claims Trump is a “false-flag candidate”, suggesting it was all a set up.
Raymond added: “It’s all an act, one that benefits his goo friend Hillary Clinton and the Democratic party, that, until recently, counted the reality show star among its adherents.”
Trump also donated to Hillary’s and other Democrats’ presidential campaigns in the past.
And in 1990 he told Playboy magazine: “If I ever ran for office, I would do better as a Democrat than as a Republican.”
Donald Trump was predicted by the prophet Nostradamus
This ties into the Trump’s Trumpet theory mentioned earlier.
There are seconds of the conspiracy community who believe the French prophet Nostradamus predicted the rise of Donald Trump within his quatrains.
In one passage he mentions a “false trumpet”, again keeping in with the Trump-Trumpet theme.
Nostradamus wrote: “The false trumpet concealing madness will cause Byzantium to change its laws.
“From Egypt there will go forth a man who wants to edict withdrawn, changing money and standards.”
Later he said: “The trumpet shakes with great discord. An agreement broken: lifting the face to heaven.
“The bloody mouth will swim with blood, the face anointed with milk and honey lies on the ground.”
Some have read this to imply Trump could lead the west into a bloody World War Three.
Donald Trump as American president was predicted by The Simpsons
Yep, the world’s favourite yellow family foresaw Donald Trump as a future president way back in 2000.
In Bart to the Future, young Bart is given a glimpse into 2030.
Lisa Simpson has taken up the presidency from Trump, who has left the country in debt.
She says: “We have inherited quite a budget crunch from President Trump.”
Her treasurer is Millhouse, who shows her a graph showing the country’s finances plunging to the bottom.
Lisa adds: “How bad is it, Secretary Van Houten?”
Millhouse replies: “We’re broke.”
Viewers then hear one of her advisors say America borrowed from every country in the world under President Trump.
