Trump calls himself ‘the chosen one’ during erratic rant Trump calls himself ‘the chosen one’ during erratic rantBreaking news President Trump goes off on an extraordinary rant at times, taking on a Messianic tone after retweeting a notorious conspiracy theorist who suggested that he’s loved, like the second coming of God, the president declared to reporters that he’s the chosen one to take on China over Its Trade Practices he once again attack Jewish Democrat and repeatedly slam the media, along with former President Obama and using one of his choice, insults for women. The president called Mark’s Prime Minister nasty for calling his interest in buying Greenland of serve the president, zigzag on guns and background checks. He flip-flopped on the economy, saying he’s not looking at a tax cut today after suggesting he was I’ll, be speaking Congressman Mike Quigley, who is on the intelligence committee and our horse pond is an analyst, have full coverage of the day’s top stories. Let’S begin with CNN chief White House correspondent, Jim Acosta and Jim, the president seems to have anointed himself today. Hannah certainly write Brianna, the president sounded as though he had something about God, complex at times today declared himself the chosen one and accepting praise from an ally who dubbed mr. Trump on Twitter as the second coming, but the president wasn’t so cheap, but when he doubled Down on how he feels jewish-american should vote against Democrats and describing the prime minister of Denmark as nasty for rejecting his advances on Greenland. There were times when he sounded Messianic and sometimes just a mess taking is questionable rhetoric to new heights. President Trump talks about himself in biblical terms at one point looking to the sky as he praised his handling of the economy as Godlike taking on China. I’M taking on China on trade, and you know what we’re winning president stirred up more outraged, repeating his belief that Jewish Americans face of loyalty test in the upcoming election vote for a Democrat oil to Israel after the Jewish people after some Jewish American group. Slam. That remark has any synthetic the president accepted the support of conservative commentator and conspiracy, theorist Wayne Allyn root, who portrayed District trumpet Messianic terms tweeting. Thank you to Wayne Allyn root. Very nice words. President Trump is the greatest president for Jews and for Israel in the history of the world and the Jewish people in Israel. Love him. Like he’s the king of Israel, they loved him. Like he’s the second coming of God, four Israel, one of them, was moving the embassy to Jerusalem, making Jerusalem the capital of Israel Wayne LaPierre. He was siding with the powerful gun lobby with Republicans and we already have very strong background checks, but we’re going to be filling in Leupold. We just talked about concept Wayne agrees. Things have to be done. Also, president got testing and defending his decision to scrap his upcoming trip to Denmark after that country’s prime minister. As absurd, I thought that the Prime Minister statement that it was absurd. That was it. It was an absurd idea was nasty. I thought it was an inappropriate statement. All she had to do is say no, we wouldn’t be interested, don’t say what an absurd idea. What is because she’s not talkin to me she was me she’s, not talkin, to me she’s talkin, to the United States of America. You don’t talk to the United States that way, at least under me on a range of question. Trump repeatedly pointed his finger at former President Barack Obama under President Obama, Russia outsmarted, President Obama. President Obama did that consumers defense of the Trump Administration for longer periods at the border. I am the one that kept the families together. Okay, you remember that right. Just remember, I said it and now it gets even better. President Obama and others brought the families., but I’m the one that kept the families together, but that’s not true. It was mr. Trump who wants to policy of family separations. Still the President says he cares about migrant children. It bothers me very greatly now, after all of that President joke to a group of American veterans today, that he would like to give himself the Medal of Honor mr. Trump, who is not a military, veteran and avoided service. During the Vietnam war says, he was told by a awarding himself. The Medal of Honor would not be a good idea. He can’t be chosen for that. One Rihanna turn the CNN National Security reporter Kylie Atwood for the latest on this. What what happened? He reiterated what he said time and time again, which is that President Trump would like to see President Putin back at the table with the G7, I’m told by senior Administration official that yesterday, when President macron of France and President Trump spoke over the phone, they agreed That Putin should be invited to the 2020 G7 meetings next year. Now I’m told that president macron throughout the idea trying to be so put the onus on Trump to be the one to own the idea and he’s doing just that, but controversial and dramatic. It would be if you came here to the US for a G7 meeting months ahead of the 2020 presidential election here. Obviously that would be controversial, because we know that every intelligence agency says that’s Russia who meddled in the 2016 elections and President Trump has never gone. That far agreed with them, so it would be pretty dramatic if you were here in the United States. The other thing to consider is that Trump is headed to the G7 just this weekend, and we know that he’s going to be discussing this topic with other members of the G7. Whoever agree did Russia shouldn’t be allowed back in Johnston? The prime minister of the UK, a new leader that President Trump is hoping he’s going to see eye-to-eye with just said today that he doesn’t even think that there’s a case yet to be made for Russell to be allowed. Hacking create some tension between these two leaders that are hoping to start off on a good foot. He’S dissing Denmark, blaming you for saying that his possible purchase for him inquiry. Curiosity about purchasing Greenland was absurd, but it’s important point out that Denmark is an important Ally of the US exactly right. So President Trump canceled this trip via tweet to Denmark, because the prime minister, you said, called it absurd that the president wanted to buy Greenland. But the important thing here is that both Danish officials and the folks who live there are feeling a little bit unfairly here, because they have stood next to the US for years, especially when it comes to National Security. The US has been allowed to use strategic bases in Greenland since the cold war that allows the u.s. to listen in on Russia and things across the Arctic and the Danish troops has fought alongside u.s. soldiers in both Iraq and Afghanistan. 43 Danish troops died in Afghanistan. Fighting alongside US soldiers, so there is play some hard feelings here and we’re going to have to see how the relationship moves forward at this point, understandably so Kylie Atwood. Thank you so much for that report. As a member of the intelligence committee gladtobehere, thank you with the president going all-in today on his claim that American Jews who vote for Democrats are, in his words very disloyal to Israel in the Jewish people. What’S your reaction to that? This is a very tired, old, anti-semitic Trope that I hope wouldn’t be used again much less by the president of the United States. When I first got the Congress ten years ago, it was drilled into our heads. That is real, can’t be a partisan issue. Eric Cantor on the Republican side, steny Hoyer on the Democratic side said it is not in the US interest. For that to happen. It is clearly not and Israel’s interest. In very short sighted. I missed your Netanyahu to think that this should become a partisan issue and for the president to move in the opposite direction is is really dangerous at this time he is. Politicizing is real that that may be doing long-term damage. I think the damage has been done for the last couple years with the the Trump White House, I’d like to think that cooler heads will prevail sometime when the price when is no longer in office, but there’s absolutely too much at stake. I’Ve been to Israel numerous times and recognized. The critical nature of our alliance is an extraordinary important democracy. The only real democracy in the Middle East that relationship matters, but the votes on Israel are extraordinarily important and they’ve always been bipartisan for him. To suggest that Democrats don’t support. Israel is a mistake and fact most Jews and I’d states are registered Democrats. He made this move after the Danish Prime Minister called his proposal to buy Greenland and stirred Denmark has been a key usli. They provide intelligence, they sent troops fights in Iraq and Afghanistan does his canceling. This trip, where they would have discussed security issues, hurt us National Security. It hurts our security, I think it hurts, are standing in the world as a whole. I just don’t know what the present is thinking, but this isn’t a land deal in Manhattan where they’re trying to build a high-rise, and you can pressure somebody for the purchase. This is a self-governing people of Greenland, larger government of of Denmark, so it makes that way. No sense to me: what’s next: next week we talked about purchasing the Falklands and if that doesn’t work, we get angry with their government. It’S it’s Bazaar right. I don’t know how else to explain it in, for the prime minister of Danish Prime Minister to call it absurd is absolutely President Trump takes his questionable rhetoric to new heights as he talks about himself in biblical terms. In the midst of answering a question about the ongoing trade war with China on Wednesday, President Donald Trump turned from reporters, looked up and proclaimed, “I am the chosen one.” CNN’s Jim Acosta reports.
