The Independent reports:
Donald Trump has promoted a post claiming he is “heaven sent” and suggesting Barack Obama “kicked” Jesus out of the US in a string of tweets just days after Christmas.
The president spent some of his Friday evening retweeting praise for himself, including one post from January 2018 with a picture of a man who appears to be Jesus Christ and a caption saying: “Obama kicked me out. Trump invited me back.”
Mr Trump’s decision to share the post follows a number of current and former Trump administration officials who have suggested the president was sent by God.
The Huffington Post reports:
The tweet included a meme of none other than “Jesus Christ” carrying luggage and apparently returning to America (did he have to cross a border to get there?).
Trump is focused just now on boosted his bona fides with evangelicals following a scathing editorial earlier this month in Christianity Today.
It’s unknown how Trump came across the tweet, which was posted just under two years ago.
There’s so much to be thankful for regarding our POTUS Trump! I truly believe this man was heaven sent in order to save and protect the most gracious, benevolent, and in turn, prosperous country ever. God bless him and his family.🙏🇺🇸 👇👇 👇👇 👇👇 👇👇 pic.twitter.com/IA0i2zyorQ
