Rational Americans should be paying attention to the ever-growing and dangerous deification of President Donald Trump.

We should have known war with Iran was imminent when the successful nuclear agreement was torn up and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo suggested last March that Trump was sent by God to oppose Iran.

The comment was just one of many in the same vein.

“To say ‘no’ to President Trump would be saying ‘no’ to God,” televangelist Paula White, Trump’s top spiritual adviser, said in late 2019.

The president has “already set a standard … that most mortals won’t be able to meet,” Fox Business Network commentator Lou Dobbs said more recently.

God is “on our side,” Trump himself announced at a Jan. 2 rally in Florida.

So goes the fanatical information bubble in which this increasingly unhinged president lives.
