“Keep within your houses; close your doors and barricade them. The entire East Side is in an uproar. Mobs of vast size are organizing under the lead of Anarchists and Socialists and threaten to plunder and despoil the houses of the rich who have wronged them for so many years. Keep within doors. Extinguish all lights.” The Last President.
These words opened Ingersoll Lockwood’s book, “The Last President” and it described the turn of events in the United States after President Trump won the elections, call it a prediction or just a book.
Ingersoll Lockwood wrote not just one but two books which highlights with astonishing accuracy the political situation of the US in 2017 and in current times, these two books are “Baron Trumps Marvelous Underground Journey” and ”The Last President.”
In the 1896 book, there was an outside candidate (an anti-establishment candidate) who ran for presidential elections that everyone believed would not win, this man’s name was Baron Trump and in 2017 we witnessed same scenario with the United States presidential election where Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump were to run for the presidential officd.
According to the first page of the book New York was in chaos after the announcement of Baron Trump as winner of the presidential election, New York was also in turmoil in 2017 after Donald Trump was announced President of the United States of America.
In ”Last President” still, Baron Trump lived on 5th Ave in New York and according to Newsweek in 2017, Trump Tower now sits where The Fifth Avenue Hotel used to stand. His Secretary of Agriculture was named Lafe Pence (check out pg. 16) and the current vice president is named Mike Pence.
The similarities between Baron Trump and Donald Trump as you read on sends goosebumps allover your body, this book has lead people asking presently if President Trump really would be the last President of the United States of America?
There are many theories floating around the internet; some say Barron Trump is actually Lockwood, another believes the book is disturbing as it implies that Donald trump could be the last president of the US which could mean, the end of America and the end of age; and with the US-IRAN saga one only waits in hope chalking up this visible similarities and hoping that this is yet another tales by moon light.
