When WorldNetDaily (WND) named Trump "Man of the Year" in an unbylined article penned by DeAnna that he sent to his then-girlfriend Katie McHugh with the subject line "My Tribute to the God-Emperor," the future president wrote in a Jan. 1, 2016, tweet: "Thank you so much to WND.com for naming me the 2015 Man of the Year. This is indeed a great honor for me!"

The "God-Emperor" – as some on the alt-right called Trump – had honored DeAnna with a digital homage.

DeAnna, a longtime white nationalist activist and blogger who had kept his more extremist affiliations veiled to hold down his job at WND, boosted then-candidate Trump from the safety of various pseudonyms.
