Don't Start Shouting "In Trump We Trust"

President-elect Trump tweeted:


Of course, Mr. Trump is 10,000x better than the Rasha we currently have in the White House.  However, as Jews, we don't start believing in flesh and blood for our salvation.  The verse we say daily says:
ג  אַל-תִּבְטְחוּ בִנְדִיבִים--    בְּבֶן-אָדָם, שֶׁאֵין לוֹ תְשׁוּעָה.3 Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.

Rather, as we are saying in Hallel during Hanukka:

ט  יִשְׂרָאֵל, בְּטַח בַּיהוָה;    עֶזְרָם וּמָגִנָּם הוּא.9 O Israel, trust thou in the LORD! He is their help and their shield!
י  בֵּית אַהֲרֹן, בִּטְחוּ בַיהוָה;    עֶזְרָם וּמָגִנָּם הוּא.10 O house of Aaron, trust ye in the LORD! He is their help and their shield!
יא  יִרְאֵי יְהוָה, בִּטְחוּ בַיהוָה;    עֶזְרָם וּמָגִנָּם הוּא.11 Ye that fear the LORD, trust in the LORD! He is their help and their shield.

The United Nations Resolution 2334, as I noted in a comment earlier, occurred on Friday of Parashat Vayeshev, corresponding to the Aliya in which Yosef was railroaded to jail on a trumped-up charge. We also know that Yosef stayed an extra 2 years in the prison dungeon for placing his trust in the chief butler instead of Hashem, as is noted by the first verse of Parashat Miketz.

Let's not make the same error as Yosef by trusting in a President Trump to get us out of this mess.  We only trust in HKB"H, Who can do wonders.

And just as when those 2 years were over, there was a sudden Geula for Yosef, with Hashem's help we will also merit a sudden Geula, but a much bigger one on a much grander scale.  Let's trust in Him so we don't have to wait at all.

See also Tomer Devorah.


UPDATE:

"אמריקה זנחה את ישראל באו"ם, לסמוך רק על השם"

Rishon LeTzion Rav Yitzhak Yosef Shlit"a reminds us to only rely on Hashem:
"אסור לנו לשכוח שלב מלכים ושרים בידי ה' ולכן אין לנו על מי לסמוך אלא על אבינו שבשמים"

We only trust in Hashem. And He will put Trump in the WH Jan. 20th. I believe as do many others that Hashem is preparing the world for the Geulah, and Trump in the WH is part of it with the eventual destruction of our enemies. May it be soon.

Agree. We have to stop seeing and relying on other humans as vehicles for our own expectations, who unlike Hashem are but finite beings at the end of the day no matter how much power they currently hold.

The current events orchestrated by Obama administration is a development to start a war with Russia. It has to happen in less than 3 weeks time. This is the beginning of Gog uMagog war.
