According to the Israel's minister of transportation, a new train station to be built near the sacred Western Wall would be named after President Donald Trump. He went further to say it's an honor bestowed in response to Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital.

“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,” Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz said in a statement, according to the Jerusalem Post.

The station would be an extension of a high-speed underground railway line connecting Tel Aviv with Jerusalem. The project, which is in its early stages and will require more government approval, will include digging more than two miles of tunnel under the old city of Jerusalem and nearby, but not directly below, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, according to Associated Press.

Trump's decision earlier this month to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and begin the process of relocating the US Embassy. UU There he found widespread criticism, in addition to the Israeli government. The situation in Jerusalem, whose eastern part was annexed by Israel in 1967, has long been a controversial issue between Israelis and Palestinians. Israel has declared that Jerusalem is its capital, while the Palestinians will surely seek East Jerusalem as their capital in any two-state peace solution.
Previous US administrations maintained the US embassy in Israel in Tel Aviv, the city that hosts other international embassies, in an effort to remain neutral in peace negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians. Trump promised during his campaign to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, a promise that the presidents of both parties had made in the past, but that ultimately did not keep.

Trump's announcement was especially condemned by Palestinian leaders, who gave up any participation in future US-sponsored peace talks. UU The announcement by the president of the United States provoked protests and violence in the Middle East, as well as a resolution of the UN General Assembly criticizing Trump's decision.
The planned train station named after Trump also received criticism from Palestinian leaders.
This is what Wasel Abu Youssef, a member of the Palestine Liberation Organization Executive Committee had to say, “The Israeli extremist government is trying to race against time to impose facts on the ground in the city of Jerusalem,”
