Sheldon Adelson Lends His Support To Donald Trump

Despite past differences, casino mogul Sheldon Adelson has now lent his support to the Republican Party’s presidential nominee Donald Trump. Last October, matters came to a head between the two businessmen after Adelson voiced his backing for Florida Senator Marco Rubio, after which Trump accused the billionaire of giving big dollars to Rubio “because he feels he can mold him into his perfect little puppet.”
Adelson and Trump subsequently managed to patch up some of their differences in December when they met to discuss a range of issues, including one close to Adelson’s heart, Israel. At the end of their meeting, Adelson called Trump ‘very charming’, and now that Trump has secured the Republican presidential nomination, Adelson has publicly endorsed Trump, and stated:
“Yes, I’m a Republican, he’s a Republican. 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.”
Whether or not Adelson will now donate money towards Trump’s presidential campaign remains to be seen, but in the past the Las Vegas Sands CEO did contribute significantly towards the campaigns of President George W. Bush, and the 2012 campaign of Mitt Romney. Although Trump has mostly self-funded his primary campaign, the real-estate developer is currently attempting to raise funds for the general election in November.
Throughout his primary campaign, though, Donald Trump has divided the Republican Party as he implemented a slash-and-burn approach to his political rivals. As a result, many Republican politicians are still refusing to endorse Trump, including House Speaker Paul Ryan, former Presidents Bush, and Republican senator Ben Sasse.
In addition, Trump has stirred up resentment amongst the huge Hispanic population of the USA, which currently numbers around 55 million people, or roughly 17% of the country’s population. Trump has even said that he would build a wall along the U.S. – Mexican border. Nevertheless, Trump insists that he is loved by Hispanic people, and on May the 5th he posted a photo of himself tucking into a bowl of Hispanic food, and tweeted the following message:
“Happy #CincoDeMayo! The best taco bowls are made in Trump Tower Grill. I love Hispanics!”
