When asked about his ongoing trade war with China, President Donald Trump called himself “the chosen one”.

Trump, speaking with reporters outside the White House, says that when it comes to dealing with China’s trade practices “somebody had to do it.” He further added, “I am the chosen one” as he looked up at the sky.

The comment comes just hours after Trump compared himself to the Lord in an early morning tweet.

American conservative author and radio host Wayne Allyn Root, during his show this morning, declared Trump the greatest president for the world, Israel, and more. Trump took to Twitter to thank the author.

Trump, quoting Root, tweeted: “Thank you to Wayne Allyn Root for the very nice words. ‘President Trump is the greatest President for Jews and for Israel in the history of the world, not just America, he is the best President for Israel in the history of the world…and the Jewish people in Israel love him….”

“….like he’s the King of Israel. They love him like he is the second coming of God…But American Jews don’t know him or like him. They don’t even know what they’re doing or saying anymore. It makes no sense! But that’s OK, if he keeps doing what he’s doing, he’s good for…..”, written in a second tweet.

“…..all Jews, Blacks, Gays, everyone. And importantly, he’s good for everyone in America who wants a job.’ Wow!” Trump finished.

Many social media users did not seem to agree with Root’s assessment of Trump, and backlash was rampant. Others took to focusing their attention on Root, recalling him to be a conspiracy theorist.

Others, such as the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, came to Trump’s defense. He described Trump as a friend to Israel and to the Jewish people.
