Trump Shares 'Beautiful' Message From Supporter Comparing Him To Jesus—Because Of Course He Did

Former President Donald Trump raised eyebrows after sharing on Truth Social a message from a Christian supporter who compared him to Jesus Christ.

The supporter's message likened Trump's legal battles to the persecution faced by Jesus during his crucifixion and resurrection, sentiments that prompted Trump to write that the message was "Beautiful, thank you!"

They wrote:

"It's ironic that Christ walked through His greatest persecution the very week they are trying to steal your property from you. But have you seen this verse?"

The supporter's message referenced Trump's property being targeted by prosecutors. The former President faced a Monday deadline to furnish a bond to settle the $454 million fine in his civil fraud case or face seizure of his assets by New York AG Letitia James.

This mandate came after Judge Arthur Engoron, in February, directed him to pay $355 million following a ruling favoring James in a civil lawsuit. With accumulated interest, the payment soared above $450 million.

However, Trump received a favorable ruling from an appeals court on Monday, which reduced his bond to $175 million and granted him an additional 10 days to fulfill the obligation.

But prior to the eleventh-hour lifeline Trump received, the supporter quoted Psalm 109:3-8, likening Trump's legal woes to the persecution of Jesus:

"They have also surrounded me with words of hatred, and fought against me without cause. / In return for my love they are my accusers, but I give myself to prayer."
"Thus they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love. / Set a wicked man over him and let an accuser stand at his right hand."
"When he is judged, let him be found guilty and let his prayer become sin. / Let his days be few and let another take his office."

They concluded:

"I'm praying this over you daily. So many praying for you. Thank you again for taking the arrows intended for us. We love you."

Trump was swiftly mocked after the post went viral.



Trump shared the message while in court for a hearing related to his criminal case concerning an alleged hush money payment to adult film actor Stormy Daniels.

A judge announced on Monday that the criminal trial is set to commence on April 15, potentially concluding before the November 5 election, which virtually guarantees that Trump will be the first former U.S. president to stand trial on criminal charges.

Trump has entered a plea of not guilty to 34 counts of falsifying business records. These charges stem from allegations that he concealed his former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen's $130,000 payment to silence Daniels before the 2016 election.

Daniels claims the payment was made to suppress her account of a sexual encounter with Trump a decade earlier—an encounter Trump vehemently denies.
