President Trump received a big honor from the state of Oklahoma.
Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt has just signed Senate Bill 624 which would name a 20 mile stretch on state highway 287 after President Trump.
As of right now the name change is still in the process and signs have not been placed with Trump’s name on it yet.
It’s reported that all the signs will be paid by the Republican legislators who pushed to have the bill signed.
Hats off to Republican’s in Oklahoma for naming the highway after Trump because if it was up to Democrats they would look for the most “woke” person possible to name the highway after.

Newsmax had more details to share to the story, check out what they had to report:
Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt has signed a bill naming a stretch of highway in the state after former President Donald Trump, KTUL reported over the weekend.
According to the legislation, which was one of 41 other bills Stitt signed and which will take effect on November 1, the section of State Highway 287 that starts in Boise City, extends 20 miles along the panhandle, and finishes on the southeast Oklahoma-Texas border, will be named after the former president.
Republican legislators slipped the Trump highway proposal into the state legislature’s annual omnibus bill naming bridges and highways, which is usually uncontroversial, according to The Oklahoman.
The Oklahoma Legislature’s Senate Minority Leader Kay Floyd briefly put a spoke in the wheel of the legislation when she pointed out that state law says a person must be dead for at least three years before a highway or bridge can be named in their honor, with the only exception being Medal of Honor recipients.

Local 12 News got the scoop too:
A stretch of highway in the Oklahoma panhandle will be named after former U.S. President Donald Trump.
Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt signed Senate Bill 624 on Thursday along with 41 other bills.
According to the bill, a section of State Highway 287 that begins in Boise City, will extend 20 miles and end on the southeast Oklahoma-Texas border.
Oklahoma’s Department of Transportation is working to find signs to be placed, marking the highway honoring the nation’s 45th president.
Once signs get set up on the highway I’m sure it will be a place where travelers will stop by and take a couple of photos.
