During a celebration of Hanukkah Wednesday evening at the White House, President Donald Trump told attendees that he expects there will soon be a “miracle” similar to the one that led to the rededication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean Revolt against the Seleucid Empire in 165 BCE.

After joining the Hanukkah celebration, Trump made brief remarks about the holiday, telling invitees:

“The Jewish people have endured a lot over the centuries but always overcame the most impossible situations. Miracles are possible. Maybe we’ll see one in the near future. Yes, we’re not giving up, and we’ll keep fighting to ensure four more years.”

Exactly what “miracle” is Trump expecting? The lawsuit filed by the state of Texas to overturn the will of the American voters is not expected to even be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court, and even if it were, legal experts say the high court won’t intervene and demand that millions of ballots be destroyed.

Social media also had lots of mockery for Trump for his Hanukkah “miracle” remarks:

The majority of Americans are waiting for the miracle that takes place at noon on January 21, 2021, when Joe Biden is sworn in as 46th President of the United States. That will be a day of celebration.
