(CNSNews.com) - In a press conference outside the White House today, President Donald Trump looked to the sky, spread his arms, and told reporters: “I am the chosen one.”

The president was making the case that he is the one president who has been willing to take on China over the issue of trade.

“Somebody said it’s Trump’s trade war. This isn’t my trade war,” said Trump. “This is a trade war that should have taken place a long time ago by a lot of other presidents.

“Over the last five or six years, China’s made five hundred billion dollars—five hundred billion—ripped it out of the United States,” he said. “And not only that, if you take a look, intellectual property theft—add that to it. And add a lot of other things to it.

“So, somebody—excuse me—somebody had to do it,” he said.

“I am the chosen one,” Trump said.

“Somebody had to do it. So, I’m taking on China, I’m taking on China on trade,” he said.

“And, you know what, we’re winning,” he said.
