It wasn’t difficult to confirm that Ice-T was the originator of the quote, however, given that the earliest tweets containing those words on Twitter’s timeline were Ice-T’s, followed immediately by two tweets directly crediting him for the quote: 

Ice-T tweeted 'I can't believe people are comparing Trump to Satan. Yes, he's evil, but he's certainly not as evil as Trump.' (Twitter screenshot)
