Returning To The Covenant: Trump’s Mount Rushmore Speech


From the coronavirus to the George Floyd insurrection, President Trump’s reelection campaign has been in search of a reboot. On July 4th the President gave what can be considered an opening shot at his opposition and defining speech at Mount Rushmore.

President Trump defined the two sides of the current chaos in America. One side are those whose aim is to take down America by uprooting its history. The other side are those people who believe in the exceptionalism of America and the fact that it is founded on Judeo-Christian principles.

Now that Trump has framed the choice the way he has, he must go the next step in order have a chance at defeating the Democratic nominee in November.

The key for Trump and those on the right in America is a clear defense of American values of liberty and justice. This is rooted first and foremost in the Torah and the books of the prophets. While the social justice movement peddles faux justice, the Founding Fathers despite their imperfections understood that morality and rights flow from the Creator.

A defense of the underpinnings of American values requires that the President encourage and back up Israel’s claim to its historical and Biblical Heartland in Judea and Samaria.

US history is replete with yearning to help the Jewish people to return and restore their national home in the Land of Israel. As John Adams is quoted as saying in a letter to Mordechai Manuel Noah:

“Farther I could find it in my heart to wish that you had been at the head of a hundred thousand Israelites … and marching with them into Judea and making a conquest of that country and restoring your nation to the dominion of it. For I really wish the Jews again in Judea an independent nation.”

It is no accident that the BLM protests have now devolved into anti-Israel riots. For the marxist radicals at the helm of the riots, they see American exceptionalism closely related to America’s connection to Israel.

This is exactly why President Trump must take a stand for truth and historical justice. Allowing Israel to apply sovereignty is the best way to provide for a rebirth in America’s founding mission. It also draws a line in the sand against those that seek to disconnect America from the G-D of the Bible.

Trump can hold back the hordes of leftist internationalism by simply latching onto Israel’s Divine mission. The USA gains its blessing by the degree it helps enable the actualization of the covenant that the Creator promised to the Jewish people in the Bible. By being part of the unfolding Redemption Trump can rescue America from the malaise it now finds itself in and perhaps even rescue his campaign.
