Trump Declares Himself The ‘King Of Israel And The ‘Second Coming Of God’





President Trump on Wednesday shared a quote attributed to a right-wing radio host who said Jews in Israel view Trump as “the second coming of God.”

Just hours after Trump unleashed an anti-Semitic rant in the Oval Office in which he declared that Jews who vote for Democrats are either uneducated or disloyal, the president tweeted out a quote from Wayne Allyn Root, who has spread conspiracy theories about the Las Vegas shooting, George Soros and birtherism.

” ‘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,” Trump tweeted, quoting Root.




“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!” Trump added, still quoting Root.


Trump thanked Root “for the very nice words,” though the Jewish faith does not believe in a second coming of God.

“I think Jewish people that vote for a Democrat — I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty,” Trump told reporters during an Oval Office meeting with the president of Romania.

Jewish groups and Democratic lawmakers swiftly condemned the president’s Tuesday remarks as anti-Semitic.



Author Jared Yates Sexton notes that the idea that Trump is the “messiah” is a “a phenomenon inside apocalyptic Christianity that began within the evangelical community and the New World Order fad of the 1990’s.”
