Casino mogul Sheldon Adelson said he will back Donald Trump now that Trump has locked up the Republican Party’s presidential nomination

“Yes, I’m a Republican, he’s a Republican. He’s our nominee,” the New York Times quoted Adelson, who is Jewish and has donated millions to Israel and Jewish causes, as saying Thursday night in replying a question on whether he supports Trump. “Whoever the nominee would turn out to be, any one of the 17 — he was one of the 17. He won fair and square,” said Adelson.
