Misunderstanding Trump's Superlatives

Reader comment on item: Hints of Trump's Forthcoming Palestinian-Israeli Plan

Dear Daniel Pipes,

I think you have (in one respect at least) a complete misunderstand of Trump's character. You look into his sentences in the most LITERAL way. This is completely wrong. I know because I've known people who express themselves the way he does. The most useful expression I think that you should use, from his discourse, or pronouncements, is "MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN." That recall when America was Great for Trump ... when he was growing up, after World War Two, in the '50's and '60's of the previous century !

Next, think of how The Donald loved his organization- THE TRUMP ORGANIZATION. But now he has an even bigger organization - the biggest organization in the world - the United States of America! Trump is also known for valuing LOYALTY. And who is the Best Friend of America, as far as he's concerned? Answer:ISRAEL!

You must also value Trump closeness to Netanyahu. There is no way Trump would second-guess Netanyahu on Policy or Strategy. He will NOT do anything to which Bib strongly objects.

You also should give much weight to his commitment to his close advisors - once they have entered his inner circle. At the moment, the ones advising him on Israel are THREE (3) ORTHODOX JEWS: (1) Jared Kushner, Jason Geenblatt, and David M. Friedman (no relation to Liberal Jew Thomas L. Friedman of the New York Times). And you know that it is exactly this Jewish American demographic - the Orthodox Jews - which is most Pro-Israel.

So, when President Trump says Israel will have to give something - you should assume that that means a at least a "penny" - only because there isn't any smaller unit of currency in the United States.

Everything we now know about the Trump Presidency is that he's EXTREMELY PRO ISRAEL (after all, its a possible future home for his beloved Jewish Daughter and his three (3) grandchildren under her Orthodox Jewish motherhood. The question you should rather ask, is how soon after leaning office will Trump build a "Trump Tower in Jerusalem"!
