American in Israel stumps for Trump

This American Presidential election cycle has been a crazy and very intense one. As it comes closer to an end, it is becoming clear who will be in the general election. A race between Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton.

Many have known me for my undying support for Ted Cruz and campaigning for him in Israel to Americans that live here. He has suspended his campaign.

Now I have been going back and forth on what is the right thing to do for America, as well as Israel, because let’s face it, an American President is very influential when it comes to Israel, whether we like it or not.

I have been part of the #NeverTrump campaign for a while because I felt he didn’t match up to my principles and what I stand for, especially the way he treated Ted Cruz during the campaign. I even wrote an article explaining why I was part of that group.

Lately, I have been thinking, “Why am I wasting a vote away?” and “Is it really our place to judge a man on principles?” I look at myself and realize, you know what, I’m not perfect, no one is. But God alone is perfect and He is the only one who judges.

One thing I can tell is that Donald Trump truly does care for America as well as her allies hoping for peace. He is willing to listen to advisors on the Middle East unlike the current commander in chief. He cares about Military Veterans as well as having decent medical care. Take it from one who lives in a country with socialized medicine… let him appeal Obamacare.

My own personal number one principle coming into this election was security for both America and Israel. He has one of the best security plans to help protect America. Let’s face it, if government officials are careless about letting Muslim refugees in without any decent security plan, America could end up like us in Israel with terror attacks everyday. So I trust him to keep my family and friends back in America safe.

As far as Israel goes, he wants peace to happen that’s for sure and has always been supportive of Israel, including donating lots of his his own money to different Israeli organizations. And lately he seems to understand what’s going on in our country. I would not mind if I could be “boots on the ground” for him here to help advise him with our situation and knowledge of the region.

Looking at this election without pride but with reason and logic, we can’t let the wicked witch of the left (Hillary Clinton) be President. It would be a disaster for both of our countries. Donald Trump is not perfect but he is the person we need to make America great again and can get things done.

For the friends I have made while I supported Ted Cruz, I do hope to keep your friendships and not let this election come between us. I have to think about what’s best for America and Israel and right now it’s Donald Trump.

I have created a Facebook group and campaign for Donald Trump to encourage Americans here in Israel to vote for Donald Trump. Please join me in making America great again because every vote counts. The Facebook Group is called Americans in Israel for Donald Trump click here for the link.
