Pro Trump rally: Last Wed­nes­day around 200 Amer­i­can-Is­raeli fans of Don­ald Trump gath­ered on a rooftop over­look­ing the walls of Jerusalem’s Old City to pro­claim their sup­port for the Repub­li­can can­di­date. Wear­ing “Make Amer­ica Great Again” base­ball caps, the small crowd said they didn’t care about the sex­ual as­sault al­le­ga­tions against the can­di­date or the on­line anti-Semitism of some of his sup­port­ers. The rally was or­gan­ised by Repub­li­cans Over­seas Is­rael, which es­ti­mates that there are 300,000 US cit­i­zens liv­ing in Is­rael or in Jewish set­tle­ments in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, which the Pales­tini­ans seek for their own state. Even if only a third of those cast ab­sen­tee bal­lots, or­ga­niz­ers be­lieve it could have an im­pact in some swing states, come Novem­ber 8.
