President Trump promised to withhold federal funds from colleges and other institutions that do not enforce this executive order.
He also decried the BDS – Boycott, Divest and Sanctions against Israel. It has been promoted on the nations most important college campuses accompanied by the indoctrination of hatred and intimidation of Jewish college students.
Emeritus Harvard University Professor Alan Dershowitz spoke to the group describing this declaration and signing by Pres. Trump as the most important action ever taken against the scourge of anti-Semitism.
Also addressing the group was Bob Kraft, owner of the New England Patriots, who thanked President Trump and spoke of the actions to monitor college campuses as a bilateral, non-partisan effort so important to the objective education of our college students.
Also present, among many others, at the informal White House Chanukah celebration were:
Vice President Mike Pence and wife Karen, Senators Tim Scott of South Carolina, Sen James Lankford of Oklahoma, Trump advisors Jared Kushner and wife Ivanka, US Secretary of the Treasury, Steve Mnushkin, Secretary of Education Betsy Devos, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, Rep Douglas Collins of GA, Ron Dermer, American-born Israeli Ambassador to the US, US Ambassador to Israel, David Friedman who President Trump praised for managing the US Embassy re-location to Israel’s biblical homeland capitol, Jerusalem,
President Trump proudly spoke of his other major works in support of Israel in addition to the embassy move – the recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, the confirmation of Israel’s right to build settlements within the the biblical areas of Judea and Shomron.
He then asked Bob Kraft, as an ardent supporter of Israel, which of these was his most important action? Mr. Kraft responded none of these despite their great importance. He believed Pres. Trump’s most important action for Israel, the United States and the world at large was the abrogation of the lethal Obama-developed Nuclear Deal with Iran. President Trump was in agreement.
President Trump then thanked Army veteran Sargent Oscar Stewart, who chased the gunman out of the Ponway Chabad, California synagogue and Jonathan Morales, an off-duty Border Patrol agent, who shot four bullets into the get-away car, saving tens of lives. They were both present at the Chanukah ceremony.
President Trump also gave his condolences to the families of the victims of the Jersey City anti-Semitism hate crime deadly attack at a kosher supermarket that left six people dead including the two gunmen.
The memorable, very emotional, event was concluded by lighting the first day candle of the Chanukah Menorah and a heart-felt thanks given to our great President Donald Trump for his brave, singular, incomparable and historical support.
