It doesn’t say he is giving up on Pres. Trump. It just says he is ready to work with whoever it is.

but they aren’t. most states that trump claimed he won have recounted three times. guess what? he lost all three times. all 40+ lawsuits filed? he lost those two. its time to grow up and welcome the new president.

Democrats have always been better for America and for the Jewish people. This should be the first step of many that we Orthodox Jews take to getting back on the right side of history and distancing ourselves from trump extremists. We are better than the right wing conservative agenda. Judaism and liberalism stand for the same thing – love and acceptance of all people. I’m excited to see that kindness represented in the White House and, please Gd, more so in my community.

finally.

that’s true. I dont know about you but most Jews were happier during Obama’s presidency. since 2016 everything felt hateful ad depressing. glad we can have someone who speaks with dignity in office.

I really hope other frum Jews will give the new administration the chance it deserves. It’s time we move back to the right side of history as he says.

Not the world of reality. Hakarat hatov is a Jewish principle, which is Is why we are called Yehudim. That’s why we recognise and are grateful for all that Trump has done and has tried to do, with courage.

Not any more. The Democratic party of today is not what it was 60 years ago. Not even 10 years ago. It has tilted so far left as to capsize. Biden is just a puppet of Harris, Cortez, etc. Antifa & BLM will become empowered.

President Trump is, and still will be, the best President . Not just for Jews but for every American Patriot. Your preaching love and acceptance for all, while you degrade anyone who is a right wing conservative? And claim you are better.? You want to distance yourself from anyone Pro Trump? Where’s your love and acceptance for all people??? Your reply is a far cry from a kiddush Hashem.
The hypocrisy just never ends. Wishing you clarity in the near future. Happy Chanukah may you “see the light “.

TRUMP IS WINNING!!

I hardly believe that Trump will win. He lost by so many votes to President elect Biden. Even if Trump gains back some fraudulent votes, he still can not defeat Biden who is way ahead of him. I’m glad that there are some Jewish sane people that see reality, and accept it for what it is. I personally voted for Mr. Trump, but after seeing the results counted over and over again with no defeat for Mr. Trump, I think it’s high time for Mr. Trump to give up and concede to Mr. Biden-our next President of the USA-MAZEL TOV… Read more »

It’s so meaningful to see another Lubavitcher accepting Biden as rightful president. Sadly this is not the case for everyone in this community. I urge my community to re-examine ourselves and what we stand for. We are not trump extremists, we do not believe in hatred and we do not stand for his discriminatory policies. If we want to be a light unto the nations, then we must actually direct that light towards goodness and acceptance and tolerance. BH Biden will get this country back on track, and Orthodox Jews should have the zechus to play a role in repairing… Read more »

Really??
December 9, 2020 9:09 am

So really, do you think this was an honest and fair election and that Trump lost??
And that the votes just did the statistically impossible and flipped in the middle of the night?? And that Biden from his basement got more votes than any other President in US history?? More than Obama?? And that every Republican Congressman defeated the Democrat in a district but those same people voted for Biden??
It is time to stand up for truth! We are all soldiers of the Rebbe!!
Get ready, please G-d, for the Chanukah Miracle and the revelation of the truth!!

That is because, even thought Biden is not a good president, some people who really disliked trump, and what he did to America, just voted for whoever was on the opposing side. Even if until now they were not democrats

Dont give up on trump so fast
December 9, 2020 11:27 am

This case was brought to the supreme court by texas against georgia, michigan, wisconsin, and pennsylvania for having violated the constitution regarding the mail in ballots. It has been accepted to be heard by the supreme court. If you would look at news other than mainstream you would see videos of the fraud recorded as it happened backing thousands of witnesses. Biden would not be president. Both biden and kamala harris have said kamala harris will be president. They have chosen the worse far left people they could find for their cabinet. We better pray for a chanuka miracle that… Read more »

why would it need a miracle for trump to win? wouldnt it need a good campaign and not such a bad public image? and no, there were no voter fraud cases that have won in court. those states that you mentioned recounted. and trump lost. thats that. biden is the new president.

What are u saying?!

Those recounts were the same fake counts they had the first time. They didn’t do proper recounts with signature verification.

….Hardly–with his extreme socialist side kicks and the fact he is blatantly incompetent!! No need I would have thought to elaborate on this website the danger of the leftist ideology controlling the Democrats!! Wake up all of you who feel Biden is just honest “Good Old Joe”!! Inform yourselves!! Do not get your information from CNN and their ilk!! Trump has been fighting for truth. Don’t be fooled from the lies of the main stream media. It is Biden who still says he wants to rejoin the JCPOA—G-d forbid!! The hatred and the division is coming from the left with… Read more »
