President Donald Trump quoted a conspiracy theorist in a series of tweets on Wednesday who claimed people in Israel think he is “the second coming of God.”
In the tweets, Trump thanked Wayne Allyn Root, who—as the Daily Beast notes—has pushed a number of conspiracy theories including that the shooting at a Las Vegas country music festival last year was a “coordinated Muslim terror attack.”
Within the tweets, Root is quoted as saying that people in Israel think of Trump as “the second coming of God.”
“‘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….,” the president wrote in a string of tweets on Wednesday morning. “….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! @newsmax @foxandfriends @OANN”

Root has also pushed a number of other conspiracy theories including that the white nationalist who killed Heather Heyer at the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, was a paid actor, and about the murder of Seth Rich, according to the Washington Post.
He also alleged that former President Barack Obama was not born in the United States, something Trump pushed for years.
Trump’s tweets came the morning after the president said that Jewish Americans who vote for Democrats had a “total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty” during a meeting in the Oval Office with the Romanian president.
