( – President Donald Trump said Thursday that while he’s famous, he’s not more famous than Jesus Christ.

He told supporters in Greenville, N.C., on Thursday that someone told him he’s the most famous person in the world.

Trump disputed that, saying he’s not more famous than Jesus.

“Somebody said to me the other day, you are the most famous person in the world by far, and I said 'No, I'm not. No, I'm not,’” he said.

“They said, yes, you are,” the president said. 

“I said, ‘No.’ They said, who’s more famous? I said Jesus Christ!” Trump said.

“I'm not taking any chances. Hey, I'm not having any arguments. Jesus Christ. I'm not gonna take any chances, and let me look up, and I’ll say, it's not even close,” he said.
