My colleague just wrote this fascinating story about Russian Jewish Immigrants in Brooklyn and their surprising love for Donald Trump. Go and check it out.
“I think that enough immigrants entered this country,” said Rosa Berezovskaya, 86, who emigrated from Kiev in 2003. “We really need a new stream that will bring America back to what it was.” In Russian-speaking Jewish communities in South Brooklyn, the Trump fans at the senior center are not alone. That sets them apart from the American Jewish community at large, where Trump has struggled to find traction. Yet Trump’s promise to halt Muslim immigration to the United States, along with his strongman persona, has struck a chord among New York City’s Russian-speaking Jews.”
