NY State Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brookyn) thanked President Donald Trump for the kind recognition the president personally gave him during the White House’s annual Rosh Hashanah call.
“President Trump has been a genuine friend to the Jewish people and to the State of Israel,” said Hikind. “As promised, he recognized Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel; he abolished the terribly dangerous Iran Deal, which threatened not only Israel and the rest of the Middle East, but American interests and world peace. And more recently, he took the steps necessary to remove the last known Nazi war criminal living in the United States.
“I am truly grateful to our president for these things, as the Jewish people should all be, and I’m honored that the president recognized me today on his call for the work I’ve done with regard to deporting this Nazi.
“My office was filled this afternoon with Holocaust survivors whom the president thanked for being on the call. You can only imagine how important this call was to them. After everything they’ve been through, they can go into this coming Jewish New Year knowing that not only is their country now free of Nazis, but it was the work of President Trump — a president who cared enough to tell them how honored he was to be on the phone with them. This was a phone call that they will tell their grandchildren and great grandchildren about over the holidays — a call they deserved and will never forget. President Trump just made a real difference in their lives.”
