Republican megadonor Sheldon Adelson recently expressed his willingness to support Donald Trump if he wins the GOP presidential nomination, Politico reports.

"Trump is a businessman. I am a businessman. He employs a lot of people. I employed 50,000 people. Why not?" the casino and media owner said at a Las Vegas gala for former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani in February.

"It reminds me of [a joke]: One Jewish man said to another Jewish man, 'Do you know why Jews always answer a question with a question?' So, the guy said, 'Why not?'" Adelson said, according to Israeli blogger Tal Schneider.

Giuliani has said he supports Trump, though he has not made an official endorsement.

"The real Trump is thoughtful, intelligent and very well-educated. He has extensive political knowledge, and he chooses to support good people," Giuliani told Israel Hayom, which is owned by Adelson.
