The warning signs about Trump were there even before the election yet the religious community endorsed. He is a bully and by nature openly uncouth, vulgar and immodest yet the religious endorsed him any way. The religious community has some very serious soul searching to do after endorsing this man, and unleashing this unfortunate period in US history. Better you had not voted at all than you vote for a bully. A bully has no loyalties and will eventually turn against even those who supported him...

Just to echo the previous comment, you get what you pay for. Unfortunately there are some in the Torah community, even rabbis, who openly endorsed Donald Trump, even though his very serious character flaws were on display in front of the entire world. What could possess any Torah Jew to endorse a racist, xenophobe, potty-mouthed, unstable bully? Were you comfortable with him openly threatening and insulting Mexicans and other immigrants to the US? Were comfortable when he said he likes to "grab" women he liked, even if they did not want his advances, in a deeply personal place? Were you comfortable when it was exposed that his companies practiced racial discrimination against minorities in renting homes? Were you comfortable when it was exposed that his own father was a member of the KKK, an organization that openly hates and uses violence against Jews and Blacks? Were you comfortable when the accusations of collusion with Russia were creeping out into the media even before the election? Were you comfortable when he openly humiliated anyone who disagreed with him on social media? In spite of this, Torah Jews endorsed and voted for him any way.

What insecurity could possess ANY Torah Jew to endorse or vote for a man with such glaring character flaws? Did you think some miracle would occur at his inauguration that would change his character. A snake is always a snake. We are commanded to never side with the multitude to do evil. A racist, insecure demographic wanted this man elected because they want shut out any other group from any share of power in the US. Did you think that siding with white evangelical X-tians would protect us? Did you think that openly siding with people who hate minorities and the poor and would love to deny basic services that a state should provide all citizens (education, healthcare, security, right to vote, etc.) would bring us any blessing? They want our very souls and to destroy our way of life. Did you think that wishing this evil on others would not blow back on us? How dare any Torah Jew side with people who behave like this!

I have never seen the US in such a state of shock and confusion since Trump took power on January 20, 2017. Some of you even likened Trump to Cyrus the Great! Really? What an insult to Cyrus the Great! It pains me to say it but Obama was a better president. Shame on any Torah Jew who endorsed or voted for this man! Better you had not voted at all. You owe every American an apology! You also owe Israel an apology because this shame has fallen on us too.

HaShem can use whomever He pleases to further His plan. While I did vote, I could not stomach to vote for either a Trump or Clinton. However, I do respect that our Creator is working out His good will and no one can thwart His plan, not even Trump or Bibi! Baruch haShem!

Natan You are overboard so swim for Shore on your own. Why not propagandize to your own choir. Learn to leave out those lies that expose your own agenda. KKK? Nathan Bedford Forrest, maybe but no 60's segregationist.A honest man surrounded by swamp creatures is far more likely. May we pray he finds the emmunah he needs to prevail.
