President Donald Trump spent his Wednesday White House Hanukkah party talking about the "miracle" he's searching for after the November election.
"The Jewish people have endured a lot over the centuries but always overcame the most impossible situations," Trump said after walking downstairs from the residence wearing a coat. "Miracles are possible. Maybe we'll see one in the near future. Yes, we're not giving up, and we'll keep fighting to ensure four more years."
Hanukkah begins Thursday when Jews will celebrate the "festival of lights". On the first night, you light the shamash, which is the helper candle in the middle of a Menorah and recite the Shehecheyanu to "our God, Sovereign of all, who has kept us alive, sustained us, and brought us to this season."
At no point in the blessings throughout the eight nights is there a prayer for winning elections.
