Trump Sends Note For Western Wall

Israeli newspaper Yediot Ahronot published on Sunday the note Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump sent to place in the Western Wall in Jerusalem.

According to Yediot Ahronot, the language was dictated, not personally written, by Trump to his advisor David Friedman, who traveled to attend a campaign rally in Jerusalem.

The note says: “May you bless the United States, our armed forces and our allies. May your guiding hand protect and strengthen our great nation.”

The note was photographed by Trump’s Israel campaign and given to the newspaper before it was placed in the Western Wall by Friedman.

In 2008, Israeli paper Maariv published the note Barack Obama left at the Western Wall when he visited Jerusalem during the presidential election. “Lord, protect my family and me,” Obama wrote. “Forgive me my sins and help me guard against pride and despair. Give me the wisdom to do what is right and just. And make me an instrument of your will.”
