  1. THis is beyond!! How c an Agudah write such a thing on behalf of Klal Yisroel when so many people disagree!! and vehemently oppose such a move!! Also does Agudah take responsibility for all yiden in prison who are desperately waiting for Trump to Pardon them? Why does Trunp deserve such a blow after all the betrayal he has had to face, and after everything he has done for Klal Yisroel?! Where are you running to??

  2. That is not clever!! It is outright silly!! They are batching up Trump for good!!! A) It is not certain that he will not be president now B) Strong chance he will be president in four years C) Even during these fouyr years will remain an active figuire
    Once Biden is (if he is ) president if Agudah has nop choice and has to come forward to congratulate that is different, at that point there is no choice..but at this stage it is simply considered taking sides against Trump!! and a terrible Betrayal!! and Chillul Hashem!!!!

  3. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I for one just think it was an ill advised move for Agudas Yisroel to jump the gun with congratulating Biden.. There’s a very real chance that Pres Trump gets re-elected. For those that are following developments know that this is not hype but a huge possibility. Georgia is about to toss out over 100,000 ballots as they are ineligible thus giving GA to Trump…. and there’s a very good chance Pennsylvania flips (which is a huge possibility with a Supreme Court ruling) and then its game over for Biden. Why couldn’t the Agudah wait…..and if Biden wins (Heaven help us) a letter of congratulations at that point with an explanation that out of respect to the 45th President who has been such a friend we decided to wait till he conceded, would have be more than understood..

  4. Nice try to reach out but the Democrats have become the party where the anti-semites go. They call the Jews in Israel “occupiers”. Trump was a legitimate friend of the Jewish people here in America and in Israel.
    I hope I’m wrong but Biden will not be.

  5. I think all the ‘oiber-chachomim’ should hold their words and leave askanus to the askanim. You don’t hover over the auto mechanic and point out to him how you think he should fix your car, nor do you question the surgeon when he cuts someone open and moves around his internal organs.

    The askonim of the Agudah have decades of shimush from Da’as Torah, and if they don’t show signatures of the gedolim, it doesn’t mean the gedolim were not consulted. By the way, the skeptics question what the real opinion of the Gedolim is even when their are signatures.

  6. I am beyond shocked that the Agudah would make a move like this so early in the election turmoil.Why do they have to say anything yet? Biden certainly wasn’t waiting for them or expecting this.They are not game players at all at this point.In my simple baal habus mind this is really a lack of gratitude to the Trump administration.Frankly,i am speechless. What is the rush??!?
