In a brash and straightforward manner typical of the 68 year-old Business Tycoon and TV personality, Donald Trump declared on Twitter that he alone would “save Israel, ” and ridiculed his political rivals as, “politicians and political clowns” – who were out to waste people’s time.

Trump also added a hashtag on the same tweet, referring to billionaire and Jewish philanthropist Sheldon Adelson, Chairman of the Las Vegas Sands Corporation.
