Israeli Minister Plans to Name Train Station After Trump Following Jerusalem Decision

Jerusalem to Reward Trump by Putting His Name on Major New Western Wall Train Station (VIDEO)

Palestinians want East Jerusalem to be the capital of a future Palestinian state.

The station, which will be built inside the walls of the Old City, will drop off passengers near the Dung Gate, which leads straight to the Western Wall, the holiest site at which Jews can pray.

As a token of thanks for recognising Jerusalem as its capital, Israel plans to name a train station in the city after Donald Trump.

The Israeli transportation minister has made a decision to name a new train station that will be built near the Western Wall in Jerusalem after US President Donald Trump.

In addition to the station, Trump-naming frenzy has swept across Jerusalem and Israel, where multiple municipal projects are expected to bear the name of the 45th President.

In May, Trump became the first sitting US president to visit the wall during his trip to Israel.

Jerusalem was restored as the de facto capital of Israel after the Jewish people regained control of the city in 1967, for the first time in roughly 2,000 years.

Before the vote, the USA president, Donald Trump said at a cabinet meeting: "Let them vote against us.

There will, of course, be disagreement and dissent regarding this announcement", Trump said in early December.

In an exclusive interview with CNN a day after the General Assembly vote, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, "I think what it does is finally recognize a historical truth".

In a statement released over the holiday, the USA mission to the United Nations said next year's budget would be slashed by over $285m and unspecified reductions would also be made to the UN's management and support functions.

The envisaged underground extension of a high-speed rail link between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem is still on the drawing board and a transport ministry spokeswoman said other departments still needed to approve it.

The transportation minister ordered officials in his ministry to define this project a top priority mission.

On Sunday, Guatemala became the first country to follow the U.S. decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem. The line will run from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

He said that "giving the name of Trump to this project will not give it any legitimacy".

However, the Palestinians and most world powers have said he undermined the long-held position that Jerusalem's status must be settled by future negotiations.
