'I am the chosen one,' Trump proclaims as he ...

...defends trade war with China

.

.

Or maybe I should title it Trump and his Jewish issues

.

.

.

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.

The president's self-aggrandizing remark followed a string of criticisms aimed at his predecessors, whom he claimed had ignored China's alleged malpractice on trade.

"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.

"Someone had to do it," the president said. He added, while looking to the sky: "I am the chosen one."

Earlier Wednesday, Trump retweeted a right-wing pundit's flattering, messiah-flavored comments about the president's support in Israel.

.

"The Jewish people in Israel love him like he's the King of Israel. They love him like he is the second coming of God," said that supporter, Wayne Allyn Root.

.

"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....

.

Replying to @realDonaldTrump

....like he's the King of Israel. They love him like he is the second coming of God...But American Jews don't know him or like him. They don't even know what they're doing or saying anymore. It makes no sense! But that's OK, if he keeps doing what he's doing, he's good for.....

.....all Jews, Blacks, Gays, everyone. And importantly, he's good for everyone in America who wants a job." Wow! @newsmax @foxandfriends @OANN

.

The Trump administration is gearing up to slap new tariffs on billions of dollars' worth of Chinese imports. Trump has already imposed 25% tariffs on roughly $250 billion in Chinese goods, and has vowed to apply 10% duties to about all remaining Chinese imports by mid-December.

Some of those tariffs will go into effect Sept. 1, while other were recently delayed until Dec. 15 to avoid harming U.S. consumers during the holiday season.

Beijing has retaliated by taxing about $110 billion in U.S. imports, and more recently by announcing that it would no longer buy U.S. agriculture products.

Trump suggests Dems' Jewish voters lack knowledge or show 'great disloyalty,' amid Omar-Tlaib feud

President Trump on Tuesday suggested Jewish Americans who vote for Democrats either lack the requisite knowledge or show "great disloyalty," amid the escalation of the war of words with Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar over Israel.

Speaking to reporters in the Oval Office about his feud with the two Muslim congresswomen, the president accused Tlaib and Omar of being anti-Semitic and argued they "hate" Israel and Jewish people.

"I think any Jewish people that vote for a Democrat -- I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty," Trump said.

The president said Omar "is a disaster for Jewish people," and lamented "what Omar has said, what Tlaib has said" about Israel. He argued that the Democrats' embrace of Omar, who is from Minnesota, and Tlaib, who is from Michigan, spoke to how the party has changed.

"Where has the Democratic Party gone?" Trump said. "Where have they gone -- where they are defending these two people over the state of Israel?"

Tlaib and Omar, who have been in the news over Israel's decision to impose significant restrictions over their planned visit, held a news conference Monday in protest. Omar and Tlaib have been outspoken critics of Israeli policies and have expressed support for boycotts of the country. They also have been known for their anti-Trump activism."It is an affront that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, under pressure from President Trump, would deny entry to representatives of the U.S. government," Omar said of the decision to stop her from traveling to Israel. "Trump's Muslim ban is what Israel is implementing, this time against two duly elected members of Congress."

An emotional Tlaib held back tears during the news conference as she discussed her experiences visiting Jerusalem as a child.

"As a young girl visiting Palestine to see my grandparents and extended family, I watched as my mother had to go through dehumanizing checkpoints – even though she was a United States citizen and a proud American," she said.

Earlier Monday, the White House accused them both of anti-Semitism.

"Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar have a well-documented history of anti-Semitic comments, anti-Semitic social media posts and anti-Semitic relationships," said White House spokesman Hogan Gidley.

"Israel has the right to prevent people who want to destroy it from entering the country – and Democrats' pointless congressional inquiries here in America cannot change the laws Israel has passed to protect itself."

Isn't it odd that those who complain that nay minorities who "think for themselves" and support Conservatives are often (allegedly) labelled "Uncle Toms" or whatever, yet have nothing to say about the current President of the United States unambiguosly stating that any Jewish person who votes for a Democrat is being "disloyal"....

Again, imagine if Obama had said something like that abot Black voters or Latinos....

The liberal Jewish resistance goes far beyond #DisloyalToTrump

This week, President Trump drew accusations of anti-Semitism when he asserted that American Jews who vote for Democrats demonstrated "either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty," and later elaborated that doing so was a betrayal "to Jewish people and you're being very disloyal to Israel." In response, American Jews who oppose the president and his policies quickly reclaimed the phrase on Twitter by declaring they were "#DisloyalToTrump."

.

Their defiance goes far beyond a hashtag. Since Trump took office, liberal Jews have joined and organized protests against the Trump administration, and specifically, its controversial immigration policies. And it is their adherence to their faith and their past — not any kind of "disloyalty" to it — that they say motivates them to stand in opposition to Trump.

.

As the Trump administration separates migrant children from their families and detains adults in squalid facilities, some Jews see echoes of their own tragic past.

.

"Jews of my generation grew up with just the Holocaust as the defining aspect of the way we look at our Judaism and the Jewish experience of the last century," explained Elad Nehorai, the 34-year-old executive director of Torah Trumps Hate, a group for Orthodox Jews who oppose the president's policies. "One of the things that we were taught is that we should not allow any of that to happen again. Many of us took it extremely seriously."

So integral is the Holocaust to the identity of American Jews that nearly three-quarters of them say that remembering the genocide is an essential part of being Jewish, according to a 2013 survey by the Pew Research Center.

.

One of the most vocal Jewish groups opposing the president's immigration policy didn't exist three months ago. Never Again Action, a grass-roots organization made up of a young network of volunteers that directly invokes the Holocaust in its name, say they have held over 30 protests across the country, many of which are organized through Facebook groups. On Twitter, Never Again Action already has over 55,000 followers whom it serves with videos of its protests and frequent condemnations of the president.

.

The network sprung from a spontaneous call to action that eventually led to a 200-person protest outside an Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention center in New Jersey in late June, during which 36 protesters were arrested, NJ.com reported. The group clashed with ICE again during an August protest outside a privately operated Rhode Island prison that worked with the agency, when a viral video captured a prison guard driving a truck into a group of Never Again Action protesters.

.

Mallory Harris, 23, joined Never Again Action as an Atlanta-based organizer after seeing videos of their protests on social media. She told The Washington Post that she had never formally organized before but wanted to combine her faith with her desire for activism.

.

"I went to Jewish day school, and we had a class called Jewish history, where we specifically talked about [the Holocaust] throughout, but we also talked about Japanese internment, the way that governments demonize a group and launch violence against them," she said. "It's always been part of my upbringing and education that these are the patterns that allow these things to happen."

In addition to Jewish history, the religion also teaches that "it is our obligation to care for the stranger," said Stosh Cotler, chief executive of activist group Bend the Arc. "We have many teachings about creating systems of justice and equality for immigrants and people who are migrating."

.

In recent weeks, Jewish activists and their allies in the immigration reform and social justice movements have protested outside of the government's detention centers for undocumented immigrants, blocked roads leading to the Department of Homeland Security, waved signs outside the White House, and staged sit-ins at Manhattan bookstores. On Twitter, the #JewsAgainstICE hashtag is populated with videos of these protests, several of which have gone viral. Many protesters have demanded that the administration "Close the Camps," a rallying cry that links Trump's detention policies to the Nazis' concentration camps.

.

On Aug. 11, several Jewish activist groups and allied organizations held protests to coincide with the holiday Tisha B'Av, a somber day that commemorates the destruction of the second temple in Jerusalem and the beginning of the Jewish diaspora. Established organizations including Jews for Racial and Economic Justice, Bend the Arc, and the human rights organization T'ruah, as well as more nascent groups like Never Again Action, demonstrated from Los Angeles to Boston to protest ICE and its treatment of migrants. Police arrested several of the protesters who attended a sit-in at an Amazon bookstore in Manhattan to demand the company cut ties with ICE. (Amazon's founder, Jeff Bezos, owns The Washington Post.)

.

Some American Jews have defended the president this week. Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.) tweeted Wednesday that Trump "loves the Jewish people & the US-Israel alliance" as evidenced by his decision to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, and his opposition of the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement. The Republican Jewish Coalition tried to explain Trump's remarks, tweeting, "We take the President seriously, not literally. President Trump is pointing out the obvious: for those who care about Israel, the position of many elected Democrats has become anti-Israel."

.

But a vast majority of American Jews vote for Democrats. They overwhelmingly supported Hillary Clinton over Trump in the 2016 presidential election, and 79 percent of Jewish voters backed Democrats in the 2018 midterms, according to the Pew Research Center. And many of them are furious with the current administration.

.

"Under Trump, the stakes have shifted and changed and are greater," said Audrey Sasson, executive director of Jews for Racial and Economic Justice (JFREJ), which participated in the sit-in. The New York City-based activist group collaborated with other progressive organizations to protest issues such as police brutality for several years. Sasson said JFREJ has seen an uptick in interest during Trump's presidency, with more individuals becoming dues-paying members and events at the organization's small Midtown headquarters frequently exceeding capacity.

.

"We're bursting at the seams right now," she said.

poppys

A god complex is an unshakable belief characterized by consistently inflated feelings of personal ability, privilege, or infallibility. A person with a god complex may refuse to admit the possibility of their error or failure, even in the face of irrefutable evidence, intractable problems or difficult or impossible tasks. The person is also highly dogmatic in their views, meaning the person speaks of their personal opinions as though they were unquestionably correct. Someone with a god complex may exhibit no regard for the conventions and demands of society, and may request special consideration or privileges. wiki

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/it-was-sarcasm-president-donald-trump-changes-course-on-chosen-one-remark/ar-AAGg7jP?ocid=spartandhp

President Donald Trump said he was being sarcastic when he raised eyebrows earlier this week by referring to himself as "...hosen one" amid his ongoing trade war with China.

"You know exactly what I meant," Trump told reporters at the White House late Friday before departing to the G-7 summit in France. "It was sarcasm. It was joking. We were all smiling. And a question like that is just fake news."

Trump addressed the statement again on Saturday, sending a tweet from France.

"When I looked up to the sky and jokingly said 'I am the chosen one,' at a press conference two days ago, referring to taking on Trade with China, little did I realize that the media would claim that I had a 'Messiah complex.' They knew I was kidding, being sarcastic, and just ... having fun," he said.

Trump's trade war with China has caused jitters in the stock market amid fears of a recession, though Trump has previously said trade wars are "easy to win."
