When President Trump made the historic announcement that the United States would recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the world was stunned. The UN reacted by voting 128 to 9, to condemn President Trump’s announcement.
Moments before the vote, the U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley warned the general assembly, “This vote will be remembered.”
“When we make generous donations to UN we also have a legitimate expectation that our goodwill is recognized and respected. When a nation is singled out for attack in this organization, that nation is disrespected.”
“The United States will remember this day, in which it was singled out for attack in the general assembly… when we are once again called upon to make the world’s largest contribution to the United Nations,” she said. –Deadline
In the face of harsh criticism from nations around the world, including some of the worst hate coming from the leftist media in the United States, President Trump stood tall and resolute in delivering his promise to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Israel is recognizing President Trump’s strong leadership and dedication to Israel, with plans to name an important train station and now, possibly even a very significant city after him…
According to the Jerusalem Post, Construction Minister Yoav Gallant has instructed the top officials in his ministry to begin the process of planning and approving a new quarter for embassies from countries around the world that will be built in Jerusalem, he revealed on Thursday in an interview from New York, where he will be speaking at Sunday’s Jerusalem Post Conference.
Even before the progress made this week toward moving the embassies of the Czech Republic, Romania, and Honduras, Gallant had already sent a letter to Construction Ministry director-general Hegai Roznik and chief architect Vered Solomon-Maman last Friday, asking them to form a task force that will immediately begin working on finding an appropriate site for many embassies in the capital.
In the letter, which was obtained exclusively by The Jerusalem Post, Galant asked the top figures in his ministry to start working on solutions to house the workers of the embassies.
Following the letter, Roznik, Solomon-Maman and other ministry officials met this week and started working on a plan.
“There is an apparent pattern of embassies moving to Jerusalem, and we have to start getting ready now,” Gallant said. “We might have to build dozens of embassies, and we would need new land ready for that purpose. I asked my ministry to vigorously take action as fast as possible.”
Gallant suggested a couple possible names for the area where the embassies would be located. He initially called it “Embassy Town,” but then said he may decide to instead call it “Trump Town,” after US President Donald Trump, who initiated next month’s move of the US Embassy to Jerusalem.
If that name is indeed given to the embassy quarter, it would not be the first site in the capital named after Trump by a minister in Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government. Transportation Minister Israel Katz announced in December that he would name the train station that will be built in the future near the Western Wall after the US president.
