The Israeli government intends to honor U.S. President Donald Trump by placing his name on a new train station that will be built next to the Western Wall.
Israeli Transportation Minister Israel Katz says the decision was made in response to President Trump’s declaration that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and his decision to begin the process of moving the U.S. embassy there from Tel Aviv.
“The Western Wall is the holiest place for the Jewish people, and I decided to name 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,” Katz said.
The new Trump train station will be part of a larger construction project connecting Tel Aviv to Jerusalem by high-speed railway, The Jerusalem Post reports.
It seems the grateful Israeli people are all aboard the Trump train.
