US president Donald Trump, yesterday quoted (approvingly, in a tweet) a conservative radio host claiming that Israelis think of him “like he’s the King of Israel” and “the second coming of God”. He went on, later in the afternoon, to describe himself to reporters as ‘the chosen one’ (video at BBC) for imposing tariffs on Chinese goods. On MondayTuesday, he said that American Jews who vote for Democrats are “disloyal” (BBC) to Israel, he later clarified (NYTimes). 80% of Jewish Americans voted for Democrats.
