Joralf Gjerstad (born 11 April 1926) is a Norwegian self identified psychic and faith healer. He was born in Snåsa and is known as "the man with warm hands", "Snåsamannen" (Snåsa Man) or locally "Snåsakaill’n".
Joralf Gjerstad claims that his ability to heal people comes from his Christian faith, and that he is not the only one in his family with psychic powers. A biography about him written by Ingar Sletten Kolloen that was published in 2008 became a bestseller in Norway.
There are also books written about the Snåsa Man by other authors. He has become a phenomenon, a legend - and Gjerstad and his healing powers are known far outside Snåsa and Trøndelag.
A few days before the inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th president of the United States, the Snåsa Man predicts his end. - Trump will be shot, claims Gjerstad.
- They're going to take him out. Trump will get shot, says Gjerstad to Namdalsavisa, but without giving a precise time for the coming assassination or who "they" are. From the room at Snåsa nursing home, Joralf Gjerstad talks about the welfare society and believes that we in 2017 are in for a wild ride. The 90-year-old is concerned over developments.
Gjerstad says he has followed the US election campaign closely, and being no fan of Trump, he does not hesitate to say that he is disappointed with the Americans and the choice they have made.
- We live in a time that will ultimately crush many, says Gjerstad, referring to that we spend too much money. He is worried that people will lose their homes if the interest rate goes up just one percent, that there are many then who will not make it. The interest rate will rise, and then people will struggle, he says, and continues:
- We are heading for a poorer time. It is not the political parties that govern the country, it is the central bank. When the interest rates rise, in reality the politicians have no power.
In an interview NA did with Gjerstad in 1991 it emerged that he in good time beforehand predicted the assassination of John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963. He talked about the killing with friends - who got pretty pale when it actually happened.
Hopefully the Snåsa Man is wrong on this one.
