OK, if I ran as a liberal Democrat, they would say I'm one of the smartest people anywhere in the world—it’s true!

Look, having nuclear—my uncle was a great professor and scientist and engineer, Dr. John Trump at MIT; good genes, very good genes, OK, very smart, the Wharton School of Finance, very good, very smart—you know, if you’re a conservative Republican, if I were a liberal, if, like, OK, if I ran as a liberal Democrat, they would say I'm one of the smartest people anywhere in the world—it’s true!—but when you're a conservative Republican they try—oh, do they do a number—that’s why I always start off: Went to Wharton, was a good student, went there, went there, did this, built a fortune—you know I have to give my like credentials all the time, because we’re a little disadvantaged—but you look at the nuclear deal, the thing that really bothers me—it would have been so easy, and it’s not as important as these lives are (nuclear is powerful; my uncle explained that to me many, many years ago, the power and that was 35 years ago; he would explain the power of what's going to happen and he was right—who would have thought?), but when you look at what's going on with the four prisoners—now it used to be three, now it’s four—but when it was three and even now, I would have said it's all in the messenger; fellas, and it is fellas because, you know, they don't, they haven’t figured that the women are smarter right now than the men, so, you know, it’s gonna take them about another 150 years—but the Persians are great negotiators, the Iranians are great negotiators, so, and they, they just killed, they just killed us.

When praying for the sick, it is customary to recite Tehillim - Psalms, give Charity and pray for their speedy and complete recovery. An opportune time for a special prayer to be recited for the sick is during the Torah reading.

1. For the conductor, a song of David. 2. May the Lord answer you on a day of distress; may the name of the God of Jacob fortify you. 3. May He send your aid from His sanctuary, and may He support you from Zion. 4. May He remember all your meal offerings and may He accept your fat burnt offerings forever. 5. May He give you as your heart [desires], and may He fulfill all your counsel. 6. Let us sing praises for your salvation, and let us assemble in the name of our God; may the Lord fulfill all your requests. 7. Now I know that the Lord saved His anointed; He answered him from His holy heavens; with the mighty acts of salvation from His right hand. 8. These trust in chariots and these in horses, but we-we mention the name of the Lord our God. 9. They kneel and fall, but we rise and gain strength. 10. O Lord, save [us]; may the King answer us on the day we call.

Prayer for the Sick
G‑d, G‑d, mighty, merciful and gracious, long - suffering, and abundant in love and truth, keeping truth for thousands of generations, forgiving iniquity, transgression, and sin, and Who erases.

Yours, Lord, is the greatness, the strength, the splendor, the victory and the glory; for everything in heaven and earth is Your Kingdom; God Who is exalted above every leader. And in Your hand is the soul of every living thing and the spirit of all mortal men. And in Your hand is the power to make great, to strengthen and to cure every person, even one who is crushed, crushed to the very depths of his soul.

Nothing is unknown to You, and in Your hand is the soul of every living thing. Therefore may it be Your will, O trustworthy God, Merciful Father, Healer of all illnesses of Your people Israel; the One Who dresses the wounds of beloved ones with healing balms, and Who redeems His devout ones, and Who delivers the souls of His servants—

You, O trustworthy Healer—please send healing, cure, and remedy, with abundant kindness, graciousness, and compassion to [person’s Jewish name] the son/daughter of [the person’s mother’s Jewish name]. 

Restore his/her spirit and soul. May You be filled with mercy for him/her to restore him/her to health, to cure, strengthen, and revitalize him/her as is the wish of all for his/her relatives and loved ones. May You send him/her a complete recovery, a spiritual recovery, and a physical recovery. 
Renew his/her youth like the eagles; send him/her, and all who are ill a lasting cure, a blessed cure, a gracious and compassionate cure, a merciful cure, with peace and life and lengthy days and years. May there be fulfilled for him/her and all who are ailing the verse recorded by Your servant Moses, the most faithful of Your House:

“And he [Moses] said:“any sickness that I have brought upon Egypt I will not bring upon you, for I am God, Your Healer.’”

“And He shall bless your bread and your water, and I shall remove sickness from among you.” 
“None shall miscarry nor be barren in your land; I will fill out the number of your days.”

“And God will remove from you all sickness....” 

Heal us, God—then we will be healed; save us—then we will be saved, for You are our praise. Bring complete recovery for all of the ailments of Your people, the family of Israel, and particularly to [state the person’s name] the son/daughter of [state the person’s mother’s name], a complete recovery to (for a male: his 248 organs and to his 365 sinews) (for a female: all her organs and her sinews).  Cure him/her like [You did] Hezekiah, King of Judah, from his sickness, and like Miriam, the prophetess, from her leprosy. Employ the sacred names that emanate from the verses containing Your thirteen attributes of Divine Mercy. Please, O God, heal [person’s Jewish name] the son/daughter of [person’s mother’s Jewish name] and raise him/her from his/her sickbed.

 Grant lengthy days and years to him/her so that he/she may serve You with love and fear. And grant him/her a life of mercy, a life of health, a life of peace, a life of blessing, as it is written: “For length of days and years of life and peace shall they add to you.”
