China's 'monkey prophesier' picks Trump as next US Prez

London [UK], Nov. 4 (ANI): A Chinese monkey described as the "king of prophets" has chosen Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump to be the next president of the United States.

The monkey had earlier successfully predicted the winner of football's European Championship final this year, reports the Guardian.

Known as Geda, which means knots or goose bumps, the prophetic monkey is the latest in a series of purportedly psychic animals that have popped up around the world since Paul the Octopus correctly predicted multiple 2010 World Cup matches.

The monkey was given a chance to pick between bananas placed beside life-sized cut-outs of Trump and his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.

The mystic monkey chose Trump after "deliberate thought", Shiyanhu Ecological Tourism Park said Thursday in a statement on its website.

Without even waiting, he congratulated the cardboard candidate with a kiss on the lips. (ANI)
