President Donald Trump is the first President of the United States to have Jewish grandchildren. This is not just a peculiar fact. It is crucial to the Trump Presidency. All forward looking leaders worry most about their grandchildren and the world they will inherit.

Our grandchildren are our future. It is certainly not lost on President Trump. G-d promised Abraham (Genesis 22:17), "I shall surely bless you and greatly increase your offspring like the stars of the heavens and like the sand on the seashore; and your offspring shall inherit the gate of his enemies." If the 3 million or so Jews (600,000 men over the age of 20) who left Egypt were allowed to flourish then this prophecy would have been fulfilled by now. Unfortunately, the world has persecuted Jews for 3500 years.

It is estimated that if the "ten lost tribes" returned to Israel today they would number over 60 million. According to the Jewish People Policy Institute (JPPI) there are nearly 16 million Jews in the world today. This is approximately the same number as before World War II and the Holocaust. The majority of Jews (over 6 million) live in Israel today. There are nearly one million living in Judea and Samaria. The average family in Judea and Samaria has approximately 5 children. It does require a PhD to calculate that in a few generations there will be tens of millions needing homes. Israel needs every inch of land to accommodate this population increase.

The media fails to realize that the Land of Israel including Judea and Samaria is not even the size of Rhode Island. The population of Rhode Island is only one million. Judea and Samaria is the most likely land mass that can allow for the natural growth of Jews. Where does the world think the Jews will live? Judea and Samaria is Israel's Biblical Heartland.

There is every reason to believe that even President Trump's grandchildren and great grandchildren will live in Judea and Samaria. As President he has every reason to make sure that Israel is allowed to grow and expand everywhere and anywhere in peace and security. The President does not have to be reminded that Judea and Samaria was built by both the Labor Party and Likud Party. All future Prime Ministers of Israel will need support from the voters of Judea and Samaria.

The reason Prime Minister Netanyahu has been the longest reigning Prime Minister of Israel ever is in good measure due to his support of Judea and Samaria. I fully expect that President Trump will help fulfill G-d's prophecy to Abraham.
