The US president simply wrote “thank you for the very nice words” in response to the praise heaped upon him.

US President Donald Trump has once again demonstrated his uncanny knack for riling up social media after he thanked American conservative author and radio host Wayne Allyn Root for declaring him “the greatest president for Jews and for Israel in the history of the world.”

In a recent tweet, the US president quoted Root as saying that the “Jewish people in Israel” love Trump “like he’s the King of Israel” and “like he’s the second coming of God”, though “American Jews don’t know him or like him.”

 







 

“Thank you to Wayne Allyn Root for the very nice words,” Trump wrote, describing the praise heaped upon him simply as “wow!”

But many social media users did not seem to agree with this assessment and quickly seized the opportunity to let Trump know what they thought about him.

 

A number of people, including the son of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, praised Trump, describing him as a friend to Israel and to the Jewish people.
