Orthodox Jews for Trump
Among Orthodox Jews, the chatter around Trump, especially after his performance at the first prime time televised debate, has been largely positive.
The comments in Shul went from “Trump is smart” to “only Trump has the gutz to say what others are afraid to say out loud.”
One such vocal supporter is Larry Spiewak, a successful businessman and chairman of the Council of Jewish Organizations (COJO) of Flatbush.
“I like Trump because he speaks from his heart, from what he believes in, and he doesn’t owe anything to anybody,” Spiewak told Haaretz. “He really is a good guy. He really is a mensch if you sit down and talk to him. Is he abrasive sometimes? Yeah, but that’s what people like, that’s what people need. Why is he still ahead in the polls? Because he’s the Howard Stern of politics. He speaks the truth.”
