The Wrath of Sheldon

Top donor Sheldon Adelson outraged

that Trump may not move embassy


Top Republican donor Sheldon Adelson is outraged that President Donald Trump is backing off his pledge to relocate the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

The Jerusalem Post reports that "Adelson is reportedly 'furious' by comments made by US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson after America's top diplomat appeared to waver on the US president's pledge to relocate the US Embassy."

The staunchly pro-Israel billionaire donated over $25 million to Trump's campaign, but has found himself sidelined by another Jewish power broker - Ron Lauder, who believes that a peace agreement with the Palestinians is possible.

Adelson is known for his intensely hawkish views on Israel and the Middle East. He was violently opposed to former President Obama's nuclear deal with Iran and supported a military strike on the Islamic republic.
