APP: Lakewood leaders, Orthodox voters were looking for a candidate that will uphold conservative values

Questioned about Donald Trump's White House pick of Stephen Bannon that he has anti semitic views, Lakewood community leaders tell the APP "I don’t think the voters bought into the narrative that the campaign in any way was anti-Semitic, nor that Steve Bannon was anti-Semitic," said Rabbi Aaron Kotler, president and chief executive officer of the Lakewood-based Beth Medrash Govoha yeshiva. The article also discusses the large votes for Trump in Lakewood "in Lakewood, it's not a surprising number," said Rabbi Avi Schnall, director of Agudath Israel of America's New Jersey office.

  1. These self appointed leaders do not represent the olam. They are apologetic for the Trump vote and coming up with excuses why we voted for Trump. Its no secret that CEO is a Hillary supporter,If hes embarrassed of the Trump vote so be it! Let him discuss it on his friends headlines show.
    The people are smarter than what these self appointed spokespersons think of us.

  2. Let's see if next time around the oilam hatorah is still so pro-trump after he slashes HUD, WIC and all the other programs they live off of.

  3. New Hud regulations that will throw many Lakewood families off were signed under Obama.

    Food stamps income guidelines were tightened under Obama.

    The yechidim did not gain much under Obama with Govt Programs, actualy it was the bush EIC that the olam made money.

    The Only ones who gained are the medical industry and clinics such as chemed lrrc ohi and others who are getting paid crazy money for a simple doctor visit or throat culture. They have what to be scared of as Trump will put a stop to the gravy train.
