China's 'monkey king' picks Donald Trump as next US president

HANGHAI: A Chinese monkey described as the "king of prophets" has tipped Donald Trump for the US presidency, a tourism park said, after the creature successfully predicted the winner of football's European Championship final earlier this year.

Known as Geda, which means knots or goose bumps, the prophetic primate 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 simian seer, wearing a yellow shirt emblazoned with his title, was given a chance to pick between life-sized cut-outs of Republican Trump and his Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton.

After "deliberate thought" the mystic monkey chose Trump, Shiyanhu Ecological Tourism Park said today in a statement on its website. Without even waiting, he congratulated the cardboard candidate with a kiss on the lips.
