Sheldon Adelson spent much of his fortune supporting U.S. Republicans. Trump was his last hero.
Casino billionaire and the Republican Party’s largest donor Sheldon Adelson has died of cancer, aged 87, his company said.
He is hailed by two leaders with whom he stood his ground: President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Adelson was one of the richest men in the world, and in recent years he has been known as one of President Trump’s most prominent supporters.
– Sheldon was faithful to his family, his country and everyone who knew him. The world has lost a great man, Trump writes in memoirs.
Last week’s deadly attack on the U.S. Congress, which was committed by Trump supporters, he did not comment on when he was admitted last week for further cancer treatment in the gambling city of Las Vegas in the US state of Nevada.
Adelson’s many millions of dollars for Trump’s campaign this time were not enough to secure the president’s re-election. He will be replaced next week in the post by Democrat Joe Biden.
Adelson grew up in a poor Jewish family in Boston. He was self-taught when he founded the world’s later largest casino company, Las Vegas Sands Corp.
His wealth and his support for Republican politicians, which ran into hundreds of millions of dollars, made him a disgraced figure among many Democrats.
