The surprise election of Donald J. Trump as President of the United States evoked passionate reaction across the American political spectrum. It seemed as if not one American was neutral. Trump’s supporters adored him, while the expressions of hatred of many of his opponents defied the norms of civil debate.

Well into the Trump presidency, one community, the Jews, on both sides of the ocean, has been on the front lines of the continuing Trump debate that has gripped the nation. Trump’s relationship with the Jewish community is unique in its very personal nature. Some of his key policy decisions affecting Jerusalem, the Iran nuclear deal, and even economic policy, have been influenced by positive relationships of trust that Trump maintained through the years as a high-profile businessman in New York, as well as some Jewish family connections. At the same time, most American Jews voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. Furthermore, many members of the liberal American Jewish community have been among President Trump’s harshest and most vociferous opponents, which raises the obvious question, “How can a president who has been so good for the Jewish people fail to receive their support?”
Trump and the Jews explains the complicated nature of the small, but highly influential American Jewish community, its natural, yet uneasy relationship with the State of Israel, and the role of religious Jews (as well as Christians) in passionate support of Trump, and of Israel. It also explores the sharp American political divide, in which the role of American Jews is clearly evolving in ways that will surprise many objective observers. One thing is for sure – Donald J. Trump will continue to make headlines and the Jews will continue to be involved.

'Trump and the Jews' is not only about President Trump. David Rubin presents the historical relationship of the leadership of the USA, going back to the founding fathers, and their connection to the Jews. The author's research expands the topic to help the reader grasp the strong relationship between the United States and Israel, and how the Trump administration understands its role in the Middle East. The topic is current. The book is a valuable resource. The hard cover edition is really nice quality, and is a great choice to add to your collection.
