To the editor:

Sheldon Adelson gave Donald Trump money shortly before the 2016 election and Trump has pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal; relocated the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem; closed the U.S. diplomatic mission to the Palestinians; cut U.S. aid to Palestinian refugees and now endorsed Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights — which is part of Syria.

It is therefore hard to believe that Adelson's donations have not had an influence on Trump's foreign policy toward Israel. Why else would anyone give money to a political candidate or political action committee?
