Talk about an honor.
In response to Donald Trump courageously declaring that the United States will recognize Jerusalem as the eternal capital city of Israel, it looks like Israel wants to honor our President.
A new report out this morning says that a future train station at the prominent Western Wall could be named in Trump’s honor.
Plus, I think it’s awesome that it’s another wall.
Here’s more, from FoxNews:
Israel could end up naming a future train station at the Western Wall after President Trump in honor of his “brave decision” to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Israel’s transportation minister Yisrael Katz plans to extend Jerusalem’s soon-to-open high speed rail to the Western Wall. The plan involves constructing two underground stations and excavating over 2 miles of tunnel beneath Jerusalem and under the politically and historically sensitive Old City.
“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,” Katz told the Jerusalem Post on Wednesday.
Transportation Ministry spokesman Avner Ovadia said the project is estimated to cost more than $700 million and, if approved, would take four years to complete.
Katz’s office said in a statement that the minister advanced the plan in a recent meeting with Israel Railways executives, and has fast-tracked it in the planning committees.
