This American Israeli still proudly stands with President Trump and welcomes him to Israel.

These past few days on social media in Israel have been a hot mess for President Trump and his administration prior to his arrival to the Holy Land. Democrats are still insisting without any facts or evidence that there was collusion with Russia during the election, as well as classified information passed to Russia. Many are taking back their support because of uncertainty over moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem and fake news reporting. With all of this, I still stand with Donald Trump and here is why.

For starters, it’s just over 100 days into the Trump presidency. He inherited a mess from Barack Obama: a country that is so divided; a country that is over twenty trillion dollars in debt; tens of millions of Americans unemployed; veterans not getting the care they were promised; and, on top of all of that, a Democratic party hell bent to impeach the President based on their hurt feelings. The media has not been helpful at all, with biased reporting from journalists, including reporting news without proper evidence, to mislead the public into changing their opinions about the current President. What has this President done to deserve this kind of treatment?  He wants to put American citizens first. This is why I support Trump. He doesn’t stand with the globalist agenda which shoves unvetted refugees that could possibly harm Americans down its throat. He also enforces immigration law by rightfully kicking out illegal aliens because they chose to break the law.

As for Israel, he has declared that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and promised to move the United States Embassy to Jerusalem to show his commitment. Although I disagree and felt this shouldn’t have been promised, I believe it will happen. A move like this does not happen overnight. We have to be patient and realize this can take time, with a lot of coordination, money, and resources required. There are so many details to be considered with a move this big. I can assure you, he will follow through.We need to ignore false reporting and not be quick to judge unless we hear it from the President himself. He made the promise that he will remain neutral with the Arab-Israeli conflict and has not taken an official stance with settlement building. The White House made their own opinion, which is their free will right but is remaining neutral. I also feel that, regardless how the President of the United States feels about Israel, we should be more concerned with how our own government views Israel. We have members in the Knesset who does not agree with the Jewish nationality bill, members who support the Two-state Solution How can we judge the President when people in our own house have views of Israel that, if implemented, could harm Israelis?

All I am saying is to be patient. President Trump’s first priority is fixing the United States because he is the President of the United States, not the President of Israel. We should give him a chance with a decent amount of time and I can assure you that he will not let us down.
