US President Donald Trump has been receiving major flak for his policies against immigrants. Despite this, Trump also has a hardcore base of devotees and fans in the United States.

Strangely enough, one such fan of his lives 13,000km away in another continent and well, considers Trump to be a God.


Meet Bussa Krishna from Telangana, a 31-year old small farmer who worships a photo of Trump installed in his little temple every single day.

In an act of devotion, Krishna offers vermilion, flowers and lights incense sticks for Trump as he reverently does his 'arti'.

In Krishna's eyes, Trump became the living embodiment of God after Srinivas Kuchibhotla, a software engineer from the state, was killed by a US navy veteran in an alleged act of hate crime in February last year.

In an interview with Hindustan Times, Krishna said, "“I was very much pained at the incident. I thought the only way the US president and his people could understand the greatness of Indians is to display our love and affection towards them. That is why I started worshipping Trump with a hope that the prayers would reach him one day."
