US President Donald Trump has compared himself to Jesus Christ in popularity. A video of a rally in Greenville, North Carolina, where he gave a speech, is published by The Independent on its YouTube channel.

The American leader added that if you look at the sky, it becomes clear that Jesus Christ is leading “by a wide margin.”
In early June, a photo of Trump with a Bible angered the clergy. This is due to the fact that American law enforcement officers used rubber bullets and tear gas against demonstrators in order to clear the way for the president for the sake of photography.
There have been long demonstrations across the country over the death of a black man, George Floyd, following a brutal arrest by police. Despite the fact that they are mostly peaceful, there have been numerous clashes between the police and the protesters.
