Trump Appoints Dr. Richard Roberts, Second Orthodox Jew, to Head His Israel Advisory Committee
July 14, 2016
Donald J. Trump announced the formation of the Israel Advisory Committee to analyze U.S. policy toward the State of Israel, enhance the unbreakable bond between the countries, ensure Israel’s military superiority within the region and research alternative solutions to the Israeli/Palestinian discord.
Previously tapped to work with Trump was CO-Chairman of the Israel Advisory Committee, Jason Greenblatt, Esq., an Executive Vice President and Chief Legal Officer of The Trump Organization.
Today, it was announced that Trump appointed another Orthodox Jew, Dr. Richard H. Roberts, M.D., Ph.D. as the Vice Chair of the Israel Advisory Committee. Dr. Roberts (in the top left photo) stated: “It is a great privilege to be asked to join this committee which, among other things, intends to analyze the status quo, seeking input from all parties on potential new solutions to seemingly intractable problems, and to recommend solutions to Mr. Trump.”
Roberts is married with six children and lives in Lakewood, New Jersey. He credits the principles of Orthodox Judaism as helping him to be a success and is one of the largest philanthropists to the orthodox community in Lakewood
Roberts is a top donor to Republican politicians including Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin,and Rand Paul. In 2010, he gave $750,000 to the campaign of Mitt Romney. In 2012, Roberts contributed $1 million to a super PAC that supported U.S. Representative Allen West.
Dr. Richard Roberts is a friend of mine for over 40 years. We also went on the same teen trip to Israel during high school. He has been an ardent Zionist who understands the challenges Israel faces. Dr. Roberts is a superb addition to the Trump team.
