“The Only Person That Is More Popular Than Me In US Is Jesus Christ” — Donald Trump Boast


US President Donald Trump told loyalists in North Carolina on Thursday there is only one person more popular than himself.

According to Trump he said the only person more popular than him in the United States is Jesus Christ.

“Someone said to me the other day, ‘You’re the most famous person in the world by far.’ I said, ‘no I’m not.’ … They said, ‘Who’s more famous?’”

Even though some polls show his predecessor, Barack Obama, and his wife, Michelle Obama, are among the most popular people in the United States, Mr Trump said he ranks second – ever, Independent UK reports.

The crowd roared its approval in the deeply religious southern state as the president laughed.

“I’m not taking any chances,” he told them. “Hey, I’m not having any arguments. Jesus Christ. … Let me look up, and I’ll say, it’s not even close.”

He laughed. They laughed.

But data compiled by 538 puts the president’s approval rating at 42.7 per cent and his disapproval mark at 54.3 per cent.
