President Donald Trump compared himself to the messiah Wednesday, telling a gaggle of reporters at the White House that he is the “chosen one” to take on China.

Trump said that the trade war with China chose him, not the other way around. The president has faced criticism for his tariffs, with many economists warning of a recession as a result of Trump’s trade policy.

“This is not my trade war, this is a trade war that should have taken place a long time ago, by a lot of other presidents,” Trump said. “Somebody had to do it. I am the chosen one.”

These comments were the second time Wednesday that Trump compared himself to a monarchical figure. Trump tweeted a quote Wednesday morning from radio host Wayne Allen Root, who claimed that Jewish people in Israel view Trump as “the king of Israel.”

“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 like he’s the King of Israel,’ Trump tweeted.

Trump’s comments came a day after the president received intense criticism for responding to a question about Jewish Democrats by implying that they were “disloyal.”

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson defended President Donald Trump on Wednesday, saying that his tweets directed towards four progressive members of Congress were not racist.

During an appearance on Fox News, Carson dismissed Democrats’ attacks on the president for telling four congresswoman (three of whom were born in the U.S.) to “go back” to their home countries.

“Well, you know, I have an advantage of knowing the president very well, and he’s not a racist and his comments are not racist,” Carson said.

The four members known as “the squad” have made controversial comments widely perceived as anti-American, slamming law enforcement agencies such as Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and harshly criticizing American allies such as Israel.

“He loves the country very much and, you know, he has a feeling that those that represent the country should love it as well,” Carson said.

A 2016 Republican presidential candidate and former neurosurgeon, Carson is the only African American serving in Trump’s cabinet. Carson defended the president by pointing to policies he believes have helped minorities in the country.

“Look at his policies, you know, under this president you see the rising Tide lifting all boats. You see low unemployment, you know, record-low for blacks, Hispanics, you know, for all the the demographics for our nation,” Carson said. What’s happening in some of these place system just astonishing and talking to some of those people there I go around and listen to what they have to say. And they are astonished. “

Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham defended President Donald Trump’s tweets towards progressive members of Congress during an appearance on “Fox & Friends” Monday morning.

The president came under fire for telling members of Congress, including Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, to go back” and fix the countries “they originally came from,” after a series of perceived anti-American comments by the members.

A close ally of the president, Graham went on the attack against Ocasio-Cortez and Omar, accusing Omar of being “anti-Semitic,” and calling the representatives a “bunch of communists,” while also advising Trump to “aim higher” in his criticism.

“We all know AOC and this crowd are a bunch of communists they hate Israel, they hate our own country. Calling guards along our border, Border Patrol agent concentration camp guards,” Graham said.

Graham also called the agenda of Ocasio-Cortez and the Democrats “disgusting,” but said Trump should focus on the group’s unpopular policy ideas.

“I think they’re American citizens duly-elected running on an agenda that is disgusting, that the American people will reject,” Graham said. “Make them the face of the future of the Democratic Party.”

“You will destroy the Democratic Party,” the senator concluded.
