Norse Hel sounds much too bland. Trump claims to be Christian, and according to Dante they have the perfect accommodation for him in the 8th circle with the other Evil Counselors.

"Let the punishment fit the crime." to quote my favorite theologians.

Christian? Trump? Pfffffft.

The elaborate hoax surrounding Yahweh is cute, but still an elaborate hoax. The purported existence of a Christian heaven or hell has been made up from whole cloth within the last thousand years. Your first assumption that Hell simply doesn't exist is probably closest to the truth. The Icelander Snorri Sturulson's 13th century translations of the, even then, thousands of years old creation myths of the Germanic and Scandinavian regions point to the gods who will determine his fate. Which is in the hands of Hel, daughter of Loki, and ruler over Helheim. Life can be boring there, even comfortable. But all is at the whim of a very grumpy and often vengeful goddess.

The Christian "God" is nothing more than a derivation of the Jewish god YHWH(the vowels are not written but are pronounced when spoken). Though if you hold their toes to the fire they will insist that "God" is not Yahweh. Practically admitting He's completely made up for political gain. Yahweh didn't actually make any provisions for an "afterlife" as such. Jewish souls get snapped up by local gods and hence the diaspora when Jews went searching for regions associated with benevelant afterlives. I'm afraid the ones who wound up in Israel are sh*t out of luck. Back where they started so to speak...

In a nutshell, Christians worship a false god, so their fate in the underworld will revert to whatever regional or ancestral gods hold sway. It would be delightful to think of what might happen if Michabou got his hands/paws on Donald Trump's soul, but alas, I don't think the Trump family has been here long enough nor shares sufficient native blood for the local gods to handle the case.

I suspect Trump's future will involve worms and beetles, rather than local gods. Or maybe his followers will display his embalmed body in a glass case for decades, like other despots.

He was ahead of his time. Socialism had just been invented and wasn't quite ready for prime time.
