    President Donald Trump on Wednesday declared himself “the Chosen One” as he defended his administration’s actions in the ongoing U.S.-China trade war...

    “This isn’t my trade war, this is a trade war that should have taken place a long time ago,” Trump told reporters outside the White House.

    “Somebody had to do it,” the president said. He added, while looking to the heavens: “I am the Chosen One.”

    'I am the Chosen One,' Trump proclaims as he defends trade war with China

    Interesting choice of words. Can anyone imagine Pres. Obama, or Bush, or Reagan saying anything like this? There can be no clearer demonstration of this man's overwhelming megalomania. The DSM-5 discussion on the characteristics of Narcissistic Personality Disorder can just show a picture of Donald Trump.

    Well, his base has been telling him that for a while. I guess he's starting to believe it.

    Clinton sold us out to China. He justified himself by fighting for human rights in China. But he still sold out the american worker to put money in his pocket. To this day they still unbolt factory machinery and put it on a boat and send it to China. Only they are using robotics and they are not really equipped to set up a modern assembly line in China the way they can in this country. My son is a computer engineer that has interned for Smuckers and Purell. Smuckers is very advanced and very up to date. Purell has a very long way to go. They bought the old Rubbermaid factory and are only using half of it. So they still have a lot of room to grow. They still have a lot of products that they can develop. It takes alot to set up the software to run a modern factory now.

    Ford, Edison & Firestone began the modern assembly line. Everyone is still scrambling to keep up with what they began back with the Model A Ford.

    Indeed, trolling is what Trump does.

    He's like the emperor with no clothes, except his base hasn't figured out he's a naked, raving megalomaniac yet, and they're the only ones he is actually concerned with outside of himself (and he's only concerned with them because they provide him with the constant adulation he apparently needs to live/keep tweeting).

    I will be happy when he is out of office, whether that is next year or later, and we can think and hear about him about as much as we do George Bush Jr. now. Maybe he can take up painting like Bush v. 2 did, and paint all the magnificent, epic paintings of himself that I'm sure he's convinced he should have.

    Read the quote in context.

    You guys are so sad.

    He’s talking about taking in the trade war with China. No other President would do it.

    It’s obvious that he is the chosen President who will take on China.
