Trump’s letter to God

Dear God!!

You know I love you. There is no one who loves You more than I. I’ve hosted a Christmas party. I’ve hosted a Kanuka party. I say marry Christmas. As I promised while campaigning. I always do as I promise. I have a huge Christian following. I always end any major address with: God bless America. I always give You a major boost. I’m doing really great. But what are You doing to me?

I’m not quick to complain, but I feel that You’re letting down Your biggest fan. You’ve send me more hurricanes with more destruction than any US president before. Most of those hit are blacks and Hispanics. Everybody is acting as if it is my fault. Then we had the greatest fires in California, threatening the homes of some really successful people. That is finally over and now we’ve got a big earthquake just off the coast of Alaska. My question to You: what are You up to, really?

I feel that You’re playing dirty. What am I supposed to do? Say that you’re angry at me? Ignore that it comes from You? How can I win over the Christian vote if You’re bullying me? Don’t You want Christians to have influence on national politics? I understand if You’re not really into politics – neither am I. But at least, can’t You play along a bit, just to be fair to me?

I’m trying to make America great again. America loves you. You should bring back Your support to the USA.

Therefore, I ask you HUMBLY: Let it go. Whatever bothers You. Cut me some slack. You know that I’m doing a very special job and the best of my presidency is yet to come. Gimme an honest chance, please. Just like I give You – You can’t deny that.

You have no one more faithful. Please be on my side. Together we can do even bigger things. May God bless the United States. May God bless You. (I told You I’m for You. I write You with a capital all the time.)

Yours truly,


About the Author
The author is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (DES - Diethylstilbestrol), born in 1953 to two Dutch survivors who met in the largest concentration camp in the Netherlands, Westerbork, and holds a BA in medicine (University of Amsterdam). He taught Re-evaluation Co-counseling, became a social activist, became religious, made Aliyah, and raised three wonderful kids. He wrote an unpublished tome about Jewish Free Will. He's a vegan for 8 years now. He's an Orthodox Jew but not a rabbi. * His most influential teachers (chronologically) are: his parents, Nico (natan) van Zuiden and Betty (beisye) Nieweg, Wim Kan, Mozart, Harvey Jackins, Marshal Rosenberg, Reb Shlomo Carlebach and lehavdiel bein chayim lechayim: Rabbi Dr. Natan Lopes Cardozo, Rav Zev Leff and Rav Meir Lubin. * Previously, for decades, he was known to the Jerusalem Post readers as a frequent letter writer. For a couple of years he wrote hasbara for the Dutch public. His fields of attention now are varied: Psychology (including Sexuality and Abuse), Medicine (including physical immortality), Science (statistics), Politics (Israel, the US and the Netherlands, Activism - more than leftwing or rightwing, he hopes to highlight Truth), Oppression and Liberation (intersectionally, for young people, the elderly, non-Whites, women, workers, Jews, GLBTQAI, foreigners and anyone else who's dehumanized or exploited), Integrity, Philosophy, Jews (Judaism, Zionism, Holocaust and Jewish Liberation), Ecology and Veganism. Sometimes he's misunderstood because he has such a wide vision that never fits any specialist's box. But that's exactly what many love about him. Many of his posts relate to affairs from the news or the Torah Portion of the Week or are new insights that suddenly befell him. * He hopes that his words will inspire and inform, reassure the doubters but make the self-assured doubt more. He strives to bring a fresh perspective rather than bore you with the obvious. He doesn't expect his readers to agree. Rather, original minds must be disputed. In short, his main political positions are: anti-Trumpism, for Zionism, Intersectionality, non-violence, democracy, anti the fake peace process, for original-Orthodoxy, Science, Free Will, anti blaming-the-victim and for down-to-earth optimism. Read his blog how he attempts to bridge any discrepancies. He admits sometimes exaggerating to make a point, which could have him come across as nasty, while in actuality, he's quit a lovely person to interact with. He holds - how Dutch - that a strong opinion doesn't imply intolerance of other views. * His writing has been made possible by an allowance for second generation Holocaust survivors from the Netherlands. It has been his dream since he was 38 to try to make a difference by teaching through writing. He had three times 9-out-of-10 for Dutch at his high school finals but is spending his days communicating in English and Hebrew - how ironic. G-d must have a fine sense of humor. In case you wonder - yes, he is a bit dyslectic. November 13, 2018, he published his 500st blog post with the ToI. * To send any personal reaction to him, scroll to the top of the blog post and click Contact Me.
