After so much winning, what's a deity to do but quit?

By Dana Milbank

The Washington Post

For a man who sees himself as the messiah, President Trump has a lackluster record on Earth.

On Wednesday morning, he tweeted out with approval a conspiracy theorist’s claim that Israelis view Trump “like he’s the King of Israel” and “the second coming of God” (a theology Jews reject). He shared the conspiracy theorist’s puzzlement that American Jews don’t view him likewise.

Hours later, he explained why he has taken a tough trade policy against China: “I am the chosen one.”
Holy God complex!

I lack the celestial sources to fact-check Trump’s claim. But as messiahs go, King Donald of Israel, Blessed Be His Name, appears to be a false prophet:

● The economy teeters on the verge of recession.

● The federal government’s finances reach the worst point in 75 years.

● A trade and currency war rages.
