Trump Says: “As President, I Cannot Take Israel’s Side”

“During a wildly animated GOP debate Thursday evening, GOP front-runner Donald Trump asserted that, as president, he cannot side with Israel in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict because doing so would “demean” Palestinians.”

Blitzer then asked Trump, “How do you remain neutral when the U.S. considers Israel to be America’s closest ally in the Middle East?”

“Well, first of all I don’t think they do under President Obama, because I think he has treated Israel horribly,” began Trump. “Alright? I think he’s treated Israel horribly.”

Trump added, “I was the Grand Marshal down Fifth Avenue a number of years ago for the Israeli Day parade. I have very close ties to Israel. I’ve received the Tree of Life Award and many of the greatest awards given by Israel. As president, however, there’s nothing that I would rather do [than] bring peace to Israel and its neighbors.”   And I say “yada yada yada.”

He then insisted, “I think it serves no purpose to say you have a good guy and a bad guy.” – source

Well, I have news for Mr. Trump. There IS a good guy and a bad guy in this battle. One is Israel – a “good guy” who is our closest ally in the Middle East, and who is rightfully dwelling in the land given to them by God Himself.

The “bad guy” is the Palestinian government who will not even say that Israel has a right to exist!  It’s not rocket science, Mr. Trump!

How will Evangelicals take this news?

Up to this point, Trump has wooed the Evangelicals with his tough talk and brash manner. It has been said that Americans are angry. My dad always told us to never make a decision based upon emotions.

A question for so-called Evangelicals for Donald Trump:  Do you care about Israel?  If you truly care, then I pray that God opened your eyes last night, when Mr. Trump spoke the truth about how he would handle the conflict as president.

Get on your knees and ask your Father in heaven if you should still support this man Donald Trump!

    1. I disagree. Israel is the the only democracy in the region, and has been our ally since 1948. We should never be neutral. They are living in the land which God gave to the Jewish people. They are NOT occupiers!

  1. It’s not about Israel being our friend and ally (which they are!). But it’s all about the Bible and what it says about Israel. God has a covenant with Israel, His CHOSEN people and the Bible says whoever blesses Israel will be blessed and whoever curses Israel will be cursed. ( Genesis 12:3 and many more).The last days are all about Israel and how every nation will be against them. Then comes God’s wrath. It’s all lining up. Scary.

    1. Trump is not a Christian and has not studied the Bible. We, as believers, know that Israel belongs to the Jewish people. We know that God gave the land of Israel to them.

    This is a sloppy article. Trump has clearly stated his support for Israel over and over. No video, no speech link to back up this article’s b.s. His daughter Ivanka converted to Judaism and then married a Jewish man. SMH…typical smear tactics. They can’t find any dirt, so they start making up flimsy articles.

    1. There are many Jews who hate Israel and are actually self-hating – my mom was one. This piece has been shared on Facebook over 10k times. Guess those people didn’t think it was so sloppy.

    There are a multitude of slurs lies and slander directed at Trump and they will continue to increase as the progressives of both parties and the media panic. Trump is in effect saying he will smash their rice bowl not just break it.

    At the center of a teeter totter is a fulcrum. Our nation stands at that fulcrum. Who we elect this time as president will determine if we remain a republic with freedom and liberty or we end up a totalitarian socialist regime and as slaves of the state.

    All but maybe one of the candidates for president are wannabe tyrants or go along to get along types who promise no change to government conduct. Trump might be the one to stop them and none of the others will even try.

    So now is the time to decide my fellow Americans, Shall we teeter or shall we totter?

  4. Well, I can thank God that Mr. Trump did get elected! Yes, I know he is not perfect, none are…No, not one. But I am 100% positive he will be a better President than Hillary would have been! We shall see if God gave us a President Trump for such a time as this……
