Donald Trump suggests he is seen as 'the second coming of God'

PRESIDENT TRUMP has suggested that he is seen as "the second coming of God" in a series of extraordinary tweets surrounding Jews and the people of Israel.

He took to Twitter to quote praise he received from conservative radio host Wayne Allyn Root, who said the people of Israel love him "like he's the King of Israel" and like "he's the second coming of God."

God - like?

On Wednesday he wrote: "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 all Jews, Blacks, Gays, everyone. And importantly, he's good for everyone in America who wants a job." Wow!"

The humble (*wink*) tweets came after the President announced that he was postponing his state visit to Denmark, after the Danish Prime Minister said that there was no chance of talks about the sale of Greenland.

"Denmark is a very special country with incredible people," Trump wrote,  "but based on Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen’s comments, that she would have no interest in discussing the purchase of Greenland, I will be postponing our meeting scheduled in two weeks for another time.

"The Prime Minister was able to save a great deal of expense and effort for both the United States and Denmark by being so direct. I thank her for that and look forward to rescheduling sometime in the future!"

Trump had previously posted a tongue-in-cheek picture of a golden 'Trump tower' erected on a shoreline in Greenland, captioned: "I promise not to do this to Greenland!"

It's certainly nice to see such pleasantries coming from Mr. Trump's twitter account, but half-declaring himself as 'the second coming of God' might ruffle a few feathers.
