Two out of five of Donald Trump’s children are married to jews. Ivanka, of course, but less mentioned is Eric Trump who married a jewess.
Those Trump kids sure have a type. Five years after Ivanka Trump married New York Observer publisher Jared Kushner (a card-carrying MOT for whom she converted), younger brother Eric Trump followed in her footsteps, marrying Inside Edition’s Lara Yunaska on Saturday at dad’s Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach.
Kushner himself performed the ceremony, which the New York Post reports took place under a “crystal-embellished” chuppah. Because while the wedding may have been Jewish, it was still Trump. Kushner had some advice for Yunaska, telling her during the ceremony, “You are not just gaining a family you are getting 6 million Twitter followers.”
Michael Cohen, Trump Organization executive, is Trump’s close lawyer and “chief political adviser”.
The National Political Director of his campaign, Michael Glassner, was in AIPAC only last year (and even helped with George W. Bush’s campaign, lol).
Upon moving to New Jersey in the late nineties, Glassner served as a senior advisor to Lewis Eisenberg, the then-Chairman of the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey and a prominent Republican Jewish leader. He worked out of the Port Authority’s World Trade Center office but left just prior to 9/11 to join IDT Corp in Newark. Glassner credits his former boss, IDT founder Howard Jonas, whom he referred to as “a strong Zionist and an AIPAC guy,” with encouraging him to become more active in pro-Israel politics. Intermittently between 2000 to 2008, Glassner would take time off to return to the campaign trail: running George W. Bush’s general election campaign in Iowa, fundraising for Bush’s ’04 re-election effort, and in ’08, where he managed Sarah Palin’s vice presidential campaign.
Fast Forward: “My interest in pro-Israel politics had grown exponentially,” Glassner recalled. “Particularly since 9-11, which represented a real credible threat to all Americans and in particular as a Jew, I felt very strongly about the threat of radical Islam and so I became more and more involved with AIPAC.” In 2014, Glassner officially joined AIPAC as their Southwest Regional Political Director where, according to his LinkedIn profile, he managed AIPAC’s legislative mobilizations, conducted briefings with candidates, and spoke at political events throughout the region.
When he told jews they wouldn’t vote for him because he didn’t want their money, he at the same time implied that they did not need to pay him because he is just that pro-israel and will naturally be great for israel. The reason the jews there booed him is because he wouldn’t publicly commit to the notion of jerusalem being made israel’s capital rather than tel aviv. Trump has since declared his support for moving the U.S. embassy from tel aviv to jerusalem. Signaling?
In an about-face since his address last month to Jewish Republicans, leading GOP candidate Donald Trump promised, if elected president, to move the US embassy to the Israeli capital.
Republican presidential front-runner seems to make about-face from prior remarks on committing to recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s undivided capital.
“They want it in Jerusalem,” the front-runner among Republican presidential candidates said in an interview posted Tuesday by The Brody File, a Christian Broadcasting Network show. “Well I am for that 100 percent. We are for that 100 percent.”
Trump’s agreement seemed to be an about-face from remarks in December at the Republican Jewish Coalition, when the real estate magnate refused to commit to recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s undivided capital.
Congress passed a law in 1995 mandating the move of the embassy to Jerusalem, but allowed the president a waiver. Each president since then has routinely exercised the waiver, citing the national security interests of the United States.
Calling US President Barack Obama “the worst thing that has ever happened to Israel” for negotiating the recent Iran-nuclear deal, Trump pledged loyalty to Israel.
“I will be very good to Israel,” he said. “People know that. I have so many friends from Israel. I have won so many awards from Israel. I was even the grand marshal for the Israeli Day Parade a few years ago. So I will back Israel.”
“…I am totally pro-Israel.” –Donald Trump
“I love israel, I’m very pro israel. […] But just remember, israel, I love you.” –Donald Trump
And then there is the video description: “I am very pro Israel.” Plus the video, wherein he says he wants to be neutral, is titled “Israel” rather than “Israel-Palestine”.
A majority of Israeli Jews believe that Donald Trump would be a friend to Israel if he were elected president, according to a recent poll conducted by the Israel Democracy Institute (IDI).
The poll found that 61 percent of Israeli Jews believe Trump would be “very friendly” or “moderately friendly” to Israel, while a mere 14 percent said they believed he would be “not so friendly” or “not at all friendly”.
The IDI poll also found that between the two Democratic candidates, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, Clinton was the preferred choice, with 40.5 percent of those polled saying she would be better for Israel and only 16.5 percent choosing Sanders despite his being the first Jewish presidential candidate in history to have won a US presidential primary.
Overall, a higher percentage of Israeli Jews felt a Republican candidate would be better for Israel, with 34 percent expressing that view and only 28 percent saying they believed a Democrat would be preferable. 13 percent said that it would make no difference.
Israel has figured large in the ongoing contentious presidential race, with Republicans Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio fighting to prove that they would fully support Israel and frontrunner Trump saying he would be “neutral” in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
However, Trump is seen by many as the most “Israeli” candidate, sharing the sometimes grating characteristics that Israelis are known for – aggression, bluntness, and arrogance, among others. The traits, while many view them negatively, indicate strength and toughness, qualities Israelis believe are necessary for wading into the Middle East conflict.
Trump has given political contributions to at minimum the following jewish democrats:
Trump also toured a museum honoring Holocaust victims in Los Angeles Tuesday and used that visit to suggest Buchanan do the same.
“He seems to be a racist,” Trump said of Buchanan after a visit to the Museum of Tolerance at the Simon Wiesenthal Center.
Trump has criticized Buchanan’s contention […] that Nazi Germany presented no strategic threat to the United States after 1940. [Source]
“I used to like Pat,” Trump said in another interview in 1999. “I thought he was a nice guy. Then I read the things he had written about Hitler, Jews, blacks, gays, and Mexicans. I mean, I think it’s disgusting. Clearly,” Trump further charged, “he has a love affair with Adolf Hitler, and that’s sick.”
