Mr. Trump, stop being played as a dumb-ass by Jewish-Americans. Every American soldier, Marine, and U.S. civilian who has died or been wounded or maimed since Osama bin Laden declared war on the United States in 1996 has been the victim — in significant part — of the record of slavish and largely unquestioning U.S. support for Israel’s national security interests.
Just in passing, I thought it might be worth mentioning that one of the main jobs of the Russian and ALL intelligence services is to try to swing elections in a direction that is favorable to their country. I have no idea of whether the Russians actually tried to swing the 2016 election in favor of Mr. Trump, but I doubt it for the reason stated below. But if they or another nation did try, they were knowingly abetted by U.S. citizens named Hillary Clinton and Podesta.
For both the individual and the nation, America’s Founders believed, it is necessary to regularly look around and ask why what is being done is being done, this to ensure that genuine interests are being addressed. For an individual such a review may lead to an assessment that all is well, or it may detect a need to change course, perhaps a decision to quit smoking, to recant support for the Boston Red Sox, or to refuse to hold your tongue for fear of hurting daintily effete sensibilities.
Because, Mr. Trump, you will set your own foreign policy, the main tasks for the next secretary of state will be to execute that policy and to purge the Department of State of those who have, for so many decades, championed the causes of foreign countries and have plied those foreigners with taxpayer money that should have been spent at home. In simple terms, if American taxpayer money is to be spent to make life better for people, those people can only be Americans.
