The president says a lot of really bizarre things without even thinking twice, and it’s pretty much become expected, and even normal coming from the leader of the free world. Regardless of how routine Trump’s weird rants are, they new ones never fail to make you go ‘WTF?’
Wednesday afternoon is no different either, as the president just can’t stop patting himself on the back in front of cameras outside the White House.
When talking about the trade war with China, Trump literally just said he was ‘chosen’ to fight this fight by a higher power. He did not, however, specify whether that power was from the light or from the dark.
This is what President Trump just said to the media:
“Somebody said this is Trump’s trade war. It’s not my trade war. This is a trade war that should have taken place a long time ago by a lot of other presidents.”
Trump continued his arrogance:
“Somebody had to do it. I am the chosen one. Somebody had to do it, so I took on China. I took on China on trade, and you know what? We’re winning.”
Here is the video:
President Trump: "I am the chosen one."
