Two facts I believe to be important need to be inserted here.
1. All millionaires are not bad people simply because they have money. However, millionaires without God can be very wicked and dangerous people because of the power their money gives them.

John D. Rockefeller and
the American Petroleum industry
Cornelius Vanderbilt, on the other hand, was a godless person, and all he cared about was money. He passed this on to his children who fought over his estate for over a year after he died.
2. Chesterton had a friend, Hellaire Belloc, whom I believe had a tremendous influence on his ideas regarding economics. I know those who know Chesterton far better than I do will jump in to correct that statement if I am way off base. Putting their heads together they developed what they called the theory of Distributism. This THEORY was loudly poo pooed by economists such as Ludwig von Mises and others who said there are two theories, socialism and capitalism and nothing else.
I believe Chesterton was out of his league when he went down this road under the influence of his good good friend, Hellaire.
The same happened to Theodore Roosevelt, in my humble opinion.
I have thought in both cases---Chesterton and Belloc, and Roosevelt and Pinchot, that just maybe the devil was messing around in the scenario. Another such case is that of Woodrow Wilson and Colonel Edward M. House. It can be said that House "made" Wilson.
"Oh what a wicked web we weave when first we practice to deceive."
No doubt Bernard Shaw would LOVE to have gotten deeper into Chesterton's thoughts with his own wicked influence. This reminds us that we should never love anything or anyone so much that we can't walk away from it, or them, when we see they are not helpful to our path to sainthood.
Donald Trump is a sinner not a saint. He is not a godless person, however, and there is nothing that I've seen that convinces me he is a wicked person or one led or influenced by others toward a devilish course for this country and the world.
