Months before Donald Trump shook the world by sweeping into the Oval office, Bussa Krishna of India believed Trump was more than the media made him out to be.
For the last three years, 31-year-old Krishna has been worshipping the American president, asking for his wise guidance several times a day.
The farmer from Hyderabad even set up a Facebook page to highlight his ever-increasing devotion to the human rights abuser, who is America’s least liked president to date. Krishna posts videos of him making offerings, or puja, at a shrine in the village of Konne in Telengana.

“My family and my village thinks I’m mad, [but] I am not bother about stuff others say,” says Bussa
Bussa says he is frequently bullied by his family and village, but he doesn’t care.
“My family and village people call me mad. Once they suggested I should visit a psychologist. I told them ‘I don’t require any, maybe you should go’ because he is my god and I am not bothered about stuff others say,” he said, according to Australia’s 9 News. The station broadcast footage of him making offerings and meditating under a tree clutching the image of the 45th U.S. president.

Whether he is going to the shop, or the fields, he always carries the image of Trump with him.
“I am doing all the pujas to Trump like how we do it for our gods,” he added.
