Adelson Signals Support for Trump

Republican megadonor Sheldon Adelson, who has said the only issue he cares about is Israel, may be softening his anti-Trump position.

The Jewish Journal reports:
“Trump is a businessman. I am a businessman. He employs a lot of people. I employed 50,000 people. Why not?” Adelson said during a gala honoring former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani on February 27 at the Venetian Resort in Las Vegas.
“The real Trump is thoughtful, intelligent and very well-educated. He has extensive political knowledge, and he chooses to support good people,”Rudy Giuliani told Israel Hayom, the free Israeli tabloid owned by Adelson, on Sunday. The interview was featured on the front page.

Adelson supported Giuliani’s bid for president in 2008.
