What does the motto "love triumphs over hate" mean?

Dear OP: Strange to say, but the language has been around longer than Donald Trump in politics.

The term comes from the card game and spread to everyday use. A "trump card" could be a higher authority, as in: "The United States Supreme Court decision trumps anything the Alabama state government believes to the contrary."

If you did something to get away with it and nullify your opponent's position, you will have "beaten" your opponent by playing the proverbial trump card.

So "love triumphs over hate" means that love overcomes hate.

So "love triumphs over hate" means that love overcomes hate.

Only now, after Trump won the election, does the phrase "love Trump hate" have a clear and obvious meaning.

It is just an untimely coincidence that it is so. If Trump had never run his campaign, it's safe to say that he would never have thought to ask this question. You would probably take it for granted that "love triumphs over hate" just means that love overcomes hate, or at least that it should, and you would leave it at that.

Just literal ... ok.

This is a double meaning and the second means a joke in the crowd; the first meaning plays on the verb 'triumph', as in "In the final analysis, hatred does not lend itself to building new things or making existing things more available, but love does. Hatred is about ideals of one person or group, insisting on all others, while love is about the enlightened self-interest of each partner and the shared future of all. "

The second meaning plays with the name Trump as a proper name: "We love to see that Mr. Trump hates people, because that fractures the Republican Party a bit and brings us voters.

Man, man, I love to see Trump's hatred work in our favor. "

That's pretty much all I have.

As someone who knows firsthand that Mr. Trump does NOT hate at all (other than hating the direction the US was looting), I'm pretty sure the middle word is a verb. That is "love replaces hate." The false propaganda that Donald somehow hates people was just that, false propaganda, part of a series of unwarranted and unsubstantiated political attacks by the Clinton campaign that had to revert to such diabolical measures because Hillary Clinton did not he could run with his poor record. Donald Trump has shown his love for all people of all stripes. The camp

The word trumps refers to playing cards, generally in a game in which a card of a particular suit will beat any of the other suits, thereby "trumping" the other suits.

The saying "love triumphs over hate" is not a new saying. It means that love is stronger than hate. Clinton used the pun with "trumps" as her opponent's name to indicate that her campaign was about love and Trump's was about hate to drive that perception.

I can see where as a non-native speaker this can be confusing as you needed to know the original meaning of the word and how it works, and take a couple of steps

I hope this helps.

In bridge and some other card games, a suit is designated as a trump, and the cards of that suit have special powers to do tricks and defeat cards of other suits. This is called "triumph" as a verb.

So "love triumphs over hate" means that love conquers or defeats hate, and the obvious pun adds an extra layer of meaning.

This illustrates the importance of punctuation because if I said "I love hate Trump" it would be a mocking endorsement of Trump. However, as pointed out in the question, it is not a joke. For any reader unfamiliar with the term, trump essentially means "replace" or "win" when used in card games. For example, depending on which suit was called "trump," a Jack of Spades could trump a Jack of Clubs. Therefore, "love triumphs over hate" means "love is more powerful than hate." The phrase is popular now because of the same spelling of trump (a verb) and Trump (a noun).

  1. Love triumphs over hate: the popular idiom that says 'love' (making decisions about sympathy, considering harmony, etc.) will win out over 'hate' (vilifying, taking aggressive measures, etc.)
  2. Love, (which) triumphs over hate: is Donald Trump against those 'love' methods?
  3. (We love it; Trump over hate: Donald Trump uses those "hate" methods, when we shouldn't. It's like another popular idiom "make love, not war."

I don't think any of my previous statements are necessarily true. I think that's what the motto means.

The word "Trump" means something like "dominate" or "defeat." Therefore, this expression means "Love is stronger than hate."

Presumably there are also some puns here with reference to Donald Trump and his bigoted statements (commonly known as "hate") regarding Muslims.

In English, the verb "triumph" means "to replace." In this case, Hillary's team plays with the word Trump and Donald Trump to mean "Love replaces hate."

This is an unfortunate slogan for two reasons: 1) it is difficult to understand when you first read it, and slogans must be direct and unambiguous; and 2) it starts with “Love Trump…”, which is what you see at first glance.

If the assumption is that President Trump "hates," then the catchphrase says that they love someone who has hatred in their heart. Some believe that President Trump hates blacks and Hispanics. Therefore, it seems that those who shout the words of this slogan love racial hatred. There is also hatred behind the creation of the slogan. So putting the word "Love" in the message is hypocritical. I've always thought this slogan was silly.
