Republicans launch pro-Trump campaign in Israel

The US Republican Party has launched an election campaign to encourage Jewish Americans who live in Israel to vote for GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.

The pro-Trump movement in Israel, whose slogan is “in Israel’s interest,” has grown rapidly, particularly among young Jewish American expatriates “fed up with the elites,” said Michal Adar, who is originally from Atlanta, Georgia.

“There’s been a lot of disappointment in [President Barack] Obama, which has translated into support for Trump,” Adar said Monday. She said Trump’s blunt style is “very Israeli in that it’s very direct and very relevant to the kinds of things Israelis are also talking about: Islamic terror, economic problems, our need for real defense.”

Adar works with other Republican Party organizations in distributing information and organizing registration centers to help American citizens vote in November’s presidential election.
