Donald Trump has bragged that the only person more famous than him is Jesus Christ. Addressing a rally of supporters in Greenville, North Carolina, on Thursday afternoon, Trump shared a conversation he’d had, saying: ‘Somebody said to me the other day “You’re the most famous person in the world by far”
‘I said “No I’m not.” He said “Yes you are,”, I said “No I’m not” He said “Who’s more famous?” I said “Jesus Christ.”‘
Trump then basked in the cheers of fans after delivering his punchline, adding: ‘I’m not taking any chances.’
Thursday’s rally also saw Trump brand rival Joe Biden ‘corrupt’ and claim that he only keeps White House immunologist Dr Anthony Fauci around to handle the coronavirus crisis because he likes him.
