Energy Secretary Rick Perry said in a portion of an interview released by “Fox & Friends” this past weekend that he believes President Trump is the “chosen one.”

“God’s used imperfect people all through history. King David wasn’t perfect. Saul wasn’t perfect. Solomon wasn’t perfect,” Perry said in the clip.

“And I actually gave the president a little one-pager on those Old Testament kings about a month ago and I shared it with him,” he continued. “I said, ‘Mr. President, I know there are people that say you said you were the chosen one and I said, ‘You were.’ ”

“I said, ‘If you’re a believing Christian, you understand God’s plan for the people who rule and judge over us on this planet in our government,’ ” he added.

The president got mixed reactions earlier this year when he referred to himself as “the chosen one” in his escalating trade war with China back in August.

“Somebody said this is Trump’s trade war. It’s not my trade war. This is a trade war that should have taken place a long time ago by a lot of other presidents,” Trump said at the time, adding while looking up at the sky: “Somebody had to do it. I am the chosen one.”

After the comments generated some backlash, Trump said that he was being sarcastic.
