President-elect Donald Trump’s failure to thank God in his acceptance speech could be a fateful mistake, rabbinic scholar and international speaker Rabbi Mendel Kessin said last week, comparing Trump’s first post-election misstep to a blunder which cost King Hezekiah the opportunity to usher in Messianic times.
“There’s not one mention of God” in the speech, “Yet the greatest miracle,” Rabbi Kessin pointed out, noting the hand of God in Trump’s unlikely win. “It’s the greatest upset in American history. Clearly it was God. There is no other explanation. How could you not give credit to God Himself?
“That’s a tremendous avlah (failing). We don’t even understand what the avlah is. It cost the mashichus (Messiahship) of Chizkiyahu (Hezekiah)… How could you not say, at the outset, ‘The first one I want to thank is God Almighty’?”
