With chants calling to “make America great again,” Republican candidates and members of the city’s Pakistani Christian community crowded into the basement hall of the Bellerose Jewish Center Saturday evening to celebrate their endorsement of Donald Trump for president.

Michael Faulkner, a 2017 candidate for mayor on the GOP line, spoke about how potently the evening illustrated the city in which it occurred.

“This room, this gathering, this meeting could take place only in New York,” he said during the meeting held at the center at 254-14 Union Turnpike. “Because only in New York could you have a temple, a rabbi that would allow a Pakistani Christian group to have a Republican gathering and meeting in their hall. It’s amazing.”
