Israel Will Name Western Wall Train Station After Trump

Israel’s Department of Transportation announced Wednesday that they would name a new train station at the Western Wall in Jerusalem after President Donald Trump, according to a report from Hareetz.

Trump fulfilled decades of American promises early in December, when he directed the State Department to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. The president also instructed his diplomats to begin the process of moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Per the report:

Israel plans to name a train station near the Western Wall in Jerusalem after U.S. President Donald Trump, Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz told the Yedioth Ahronoth daily on Wednesday.

The train station is being planned for the Jewish Quarter in Jerusalem’s Old City. Katz said he decided to honor Trump in this way following the president’s decision early this month to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and to ultimately move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv.

Trump’s decision to move the embassy has sent his approval in the Jewish nation upward. Reports from the day of the decision indicated that the president is “revered” in Israel.
