The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2020


Donald Trump

President of the United States

Amid the frantic political conflict that followed the November 2020 presidential election, several Israeli and Jewish leaders paused to thank outgoing President Donald Trump for his fulsome contributions to the well-being of Israel and the wider cause of peace in the Middle East. During Trump’s tenure in the White House, the US moved its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to the capital Jerusalem, withdrew from the 2015 Iran deal and resumed tough sanctions against the Tehran regime, killed the deadly Iranian military leader Gen. Qassem Soleimani, pulled out of the anti-Israel UN Human Rights Council, and brokered historic peace deals between Israel and the UAE, Bahrain and Sudan. In his tribute to Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the president had taken the US-Israeli relationship to “unprecedented heights.” (Photo: Wikimedia / Creative Commons License)
