Despite the Odds, Trump is Triumphant
The new TV hit reality show series, carried on all the networks, called "The Presidency" has a new winner, and his name is Donald Trump.
The Huffington Post gave Hillary a 98% chance of winning the Presidency. They, along with a whole bunch of other "experts", have orange-colored sunny-side-up egg on their faces this morning as Donald Trump will become the 45th President of the United States.
Of course, 45 is the gematria of גאולה, whereas 44 is the gematria of גולה (exile) and דם (blood). Think of who is our 44th President.
Also, I was one of the first to point out that דונלד טראמפ is the gematria of משיח בן דוד - meaning that the era of Donald Trump will G-d-willing be the era of Mashiah ben David.
I was not always a fan of The Donald, and really wanted Ted Cruz to win. He was, and still is, the far superior candidate. However, for a whole list of reasons too long to describe, I supported Trump's candidacy the moment he became the nominee.
Of course, there were reasons not to vote for him. He has negatives. I recently told someone that Donald has about 10 negatives whereas Hillary has about 250 negatives, so it's a no-brainer whom I would vote for. I also noted that regarding character, it's a wash - they're both מושחתים. What's left? Policy. And I agree with Trump's policy 1000 times more than I do Hillary's.
Take Israel, for example - an issue that is eminently important to me. Trump has great advisers on Israel and even promised to move the US Embassy to Yerushalayim. It wouldn't enter Hillary's mind to do that. Besides for her support for the Iran deal, her constant howling about settlements when she was Secretary of State, her Suha kiss, etc. Again, a no-brainer.
And here is a partial list of great rabbis who supported Trump:
