“Somebody said it’s ‘Trump’s trade war.’ This isn’t my trade war,” the president said while talking with reporters. “This is a trade war that should have taken place a long time ago by a lot of other presidents. Over the past five or six years, China has made $500 billion dollars. $500 billion. Ripped it out of the United States. And not only that, if you take a look, intellectual property theft, add that to it, and add a lot of other things to it.”

The president added:

“So somebody had to do it. I am the chosen one. Somebody had to do it. So I’m taking on China.”

Trump’s remarks came just hours after he quoted a supporter in a tweet where they said people in Israel believe he is the second coming of God.

Trump was clearly referring to being the president that decided to start a trade war with China. But the fact that he quoted someone in a tweet saying some believed he was the second coming of God and called himself the “chosen one” in one day was too much for many.
