During my recent trip to Israel laying to rest my beloved wife, may she rest in peace, many Israelis, as well as articles in The Jerusalem Post and in the JT, have expressed concern about Donald Trump becoming the next president of the United States.
In essence, I told the Israelis that based on my analysis Trump has zero chance of being elected president for the following reasons:
> Thoughtful Americans will not vote for a crude and arrogant egomaniac who has no experience in domestic, foreign and military affairs.
> His outrageous rhetoric has split the Republican Party. Only 45 percent of Republicans voted for Trump during the primaries.
> He has very little support among women, African-Americans and Hispanics.
> Millions of people who acquired medical coverage as a result of Obamacare will not vote for Trump, who has promised to get rid of it.
> He preaches “America First,” but “ Trump First” is his primary goal. Reportedly, he has filed for bankruptcy four times. This saved his neck, but it cost the government, financial institutions and individuals millions of dollars.
> He advocates to reduce or remove our troops from the Persian Gulf. This would continue President Barack Obama’s policy, which has created a vacuum in the region that has been filled by our — and Israel’s — enemies.
