Pastor Mark Burns has claimed he will become the "first real black" US President.
Burns is running for Congress, hoping to become the Republican nomination for the 4th Congressional District of South Carolina.
The Evangelical Christian Pastor of Harvest Praise and Worship Center in South Carolina told James Whale and Ash: "I’ll become the first real black President of the United States."
James asked what he meant by the "real" black President, as of course Barack Obama has already completed eight years in the Oval office.
Burns said: "Well you know listen, I’m writing a book right now called 'From Welfare to the White House'.
"I’m from the dirt, I’m from the poor, but I understand how to overcome every obstacle that you come to to become who I am today."
