Geobeats

President Trump said he was being sarcastic after he was asked about his remark that he was “the chosen one.”

“Let me tell you, you know exactly what I meant,” Trump told a reporter Friday night when asked about his comment. “It was sarcasm. It was joking. We were all smiling. And a question like that is just fake news. You’re just a faker.”

The president made the controversial comment Wednesday while defending the trade war with China.

According to CNBC, Trump said at the time: “This isn’t my trade war, this is a trade war that should have taken place a long time ago. Somebody had to do it…I am the Chosen One.”
