Adelson wrote in an op-ed published on the Washington Post, Friday. “You may not like Trump’s style or what he says on Twitter, but this country needs strong executive leadership more today than at almost any point in its history, ”
Adelson added “For nearly eight years, Republicans have fought tooth and nail against President Obama and his policies. We waged battles over debt, government spending, Obamacare and the Iran nuclear deal — an issue of paramount importance to me personally and to many others around the world … If Republicans do not come together in support of Trump, Obama will essentially be granted something the Constitution does not allow — a third term in the name of Hillary Clinton.”
Adelson announced his support for Trump earlier this month at a gala dinner for a Jewish organization, the World Values Network.
Adelson on Trump:
- “He’s our nominee. Whoever the nominee would turn out to be, any one of the 17 — he was one of the 17. He won fair and square.”
- Trump would be “good for Israel.”
Trump on Adelson:
- “The newspaper owner wanted to make competing candidate Marco Rubio his perfect little puppet.”
