Following the president’s bold move to relocate the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, the country is honoring him in an amazing way, according to BizPacReview.
Jerusalem is expanding future plans for a high-speed train to reach the Western Wall, and there are rumors one of the stations will be named after Trump.
Check it out:
Israel’s transportation minister is reportedly moving forward with the expansion plans for the soon-to-be-opened high speed rail, as two underground stations will be constructed involving the excavating of over two miles of tunnel beneath downtown Jerusalem.
“The Western Wall is the holiest place for the Jewish people, and I decided to call the train station that leads to it after President Trump following his historic and brave decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel,” Yisrael Katz told the Jerusalem Post on Wednesday.
President Trump made history earlier this year as the first sitting U.S. president to ever visit the Western Wall.

The international community responded harshly to Trump’s decision to move the embassy, with the UN General Assembly passing a resolution that condemned the decision 128-9.

U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley responded to the vote, saying that “America will put our embassy in Jerusalem. No vote in the United Nations will make any difference on that. But this vote will make a difference on how Americans look at the UN, and on how we look at countries who disrespect us in the UN.”Note: The author of this article has included commentary that expresses an opinion and analysis of the facts.
