The soothsayer also predicted the 44th president of The United States of America would be an African-American.
Who is Baba Vanga? She's the blind mystic who was given the title of "the Nostradamus of the Balkans" because of all the prophecies she's made. Not only did she predict the 9/11 before her death in 1996 at the age of 85, but she also predicted that America's 44th president would be African-American.
With an 85% success rate, the Bulgarian-born prophet referred to the 9/11 attack back in 1989, when she claimed that the "American brethren" will be struck by "two steel birds" which some say were the two hijacked passenger airplanes that hit the World Trade Center.

Research conducted by a former director of the Bulgarian Institute of Suggestology, Professor Georgi Lozanov claimed that her predictions were true 85% of the time, reported The Sun. However, in 2012, Washington Post claimed that it was social media and its "going viral" tendencies that lead to people crediting certain prophesies to her.
Now after all these years, there are reports that Baba Vanga, before passing away, predicted that the world would be hit by the coronavirus. A 73-year-old believer of Baba Vanga, Neshka Stefanova Robeva said that the mystic once mentioned "corona" when the coach for a number of Bulgarian rhythmic gymnasts visited her.
The Daily Star reported that Neshka shared her conversation with Baba Vanga on social media. "This virus came to us, too," she wrote and continued, "Aunt Vanga predicted when I visited her years ago: 'Neshka, the Corona will be all over us.' I did not realize what those words meant then."
Neshka said that she thought the soothsayer was talking about Russian leadership in the country because "corona" in their language means guardianship. Neshka said that it's "only now did I realize that it was Chinese flu. May it go away easily."
Along with the prediction of the pandemic, Baba Vanga also claimed that the President would succumb to an illness. The Sun reported that she predicted that the 45th president of the United States would catch an unknown disease. As it turns out, President Trump was tested positive for the novel coronavirus. With this, Baba Vanga's followers are sure that her predictions are coming true.
It should be noted, not everything she says turns out to be true. She claimed that the 44th president would be the last one but here we are, waiting for another election. The Mirror reported that she prophecized a nuclear war would break between the years 2010 to 2014. As per The Sun, the psychic predicted that President Trump would have a brain tumor that would either leave him deaf or... dead.
"Horror, horror! The American brothers will fall after being attacked by the steel birds. The wolves will be howling in a bush, and innocent blood will be gushing," she told her followers referring to the 9/11 attacks.
The Mirror revealed that Baba Vanga, having the power of foresight, was a very important personality in Bulgaria. She was no less than a president herself. Not only was she put on a state payroll by the government, but she also had a personalized team just for her who noted down all the prophecies she made. The staff who were always around her and alert also recorded the conversations the mystic had with her followers who came to her for advice.
We told you almost everything about her but aren't you curious about why she's the blind mystic? She is reported to have lost her eyesight during a storm dust, however, according to her believers' claims, it is the reason she got the power of "second sight" that made her see the things she saw.
