Trump Just Tweeted Suggestion that He’s the ‘Second Coming of God’ and the ‘King of Israel’

Donald Trump is quote-tweeting his supporters again, this time its someone claiming that he is “the best President for Israel in the history of the world.”

And also that he’s the “Second coming of God”.

As polls show that Trump fares badly with most Jewish American voters, the president drew set off a firestorm yesterday when he said that Jews who vote for Democrats show “either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty.”

The comments drew a great deal of outrage among critics, so on Wednesday, Trump tweeted out gushing praise from Wayne Allen Root, a far-right writer and radio host who say Israelis view the president like “the second coming of God.”

It may be worth noting Root is a prominent conspiracy theorist who has been known to spread birtherism, the Seth Rich conspiracy theory, and also blamed Muslims for the 2017 Las Vegas shooting without any evidence.

You can imagine how Twitter responded:
