"L’État, c’est moi"

Louis XIV
Louis XIV ruled France for over 72 years, so long that he was succeeded on the throne not by his son or his grandson, but by his great-grandson. It was the longest reign in the history of any major European throne, and it took place at the height of belief in the “divine right of kings,” to rule as solely and autocratically as they chose. So it comes as no surprise that his famous historical catchphrase would be “L’État, c’est moi”—literally, “I am the State.

I strongly believe that Donald J. Trump believes that he is the reincarnation of Louis XIV and the continuation of his reign. He is ruling our country like an absolute monarch. Even George III obeyed his Palrliament.
