President Trump in Wildwood New Jersey (Video Snippet)

At a vibrant rally in New Jersey, former President Donald Trump declared an unwavering commitment to Israel, proclaiming The Jewish State's right to triumph in its war on terror. Trump vividly portrayed a scenario where the October 7 attack by Hamas would be unthinkable under his leadership, illustrating a stark contrast with the current administration.

Trump passionately condemned the rise of pro-Palestine protests across American universities, vowing a tough stance against any foreign influences fostering jihadism, anti-Americanism, or antisemitism on college campuses. When I’m president, we will not allow colleges to be taken over by violent radicals. If you come here from another country and try to bring jihadism, anti-Americanism, or antisemitism to our campuses, we will immediately deport you, you’ll be out of that school,” he asserted, promising swift deportation for offenders.

Moreover, Trump lambasted President Joe Biden and the Democrats for allegedly accepting donations from antisemites and purveyors of chaos, urging them to renounce such contributions immediately. He criticized Biden's decision to halt weapon shipments to Israel amid its conflict with Hamas, positioning himself as a stalwart supporter of Israel's sovereign right to defend itself against terrorism, irrespective of the political ramifications.

Trump escalated his critique of Biden, branding him as the "worst president ever." He claimed, "You could take the 10 worst presidents in the history of our country, and add them up…and they haven’t done the damage to our country that this total moron has done." Trump's rhetoric reached a crescendo as he addressed a massive crowd of 100,000, dismissing Biden as a global laughingstock and a fool.

Trump has defended some who have expressed antisemitic sentiments,, such as the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., for having "very good people on both sides" and has suggested that Jewish people who vote for Democrats "hate Israel." However, his affinity for Jews and Israel was evident in his tireless effort to bridge the Arab world and Israel in the monumental Abraham Accords. As well, his daughter, Ivanka converted to Orthodox Judaism and he has a close relationship with her, and her children with Jared Kushner.

Speaking about the Islamist and Marxist funded protests on campuses, Trump said: "I always talk about, we have enemies on the outside and we have enemies from within — the enemies from within are more dangerous to me than the enemies from the outside," Trump said. "Russia and China, we can handle. But these lunatics within our government that are going to destroy our country, and probably want to. We have to get it stopped."

Though Trump spoke of President Biden's lack of effectiveness, and that positive economic data associated with the current administration is "rigged," he thinks that one positive indicator is accurate: the stock market, which he says is in great shape because people think he’s going to win in November.

Despite New Jersey's typical Democratic leanings and having not supported a Republican presidential candidate since 1988, Trump confidently announced his campaign's intentions to "win New Jersey," capitalizing on what he described as a burgeoning movement fueled by love, intelligence, and common sense in traditionally blue states.
