Now, Israel Names City Square After Trump for ‘Recognizing Jerusalem as Eternal Capital’

Israel’s Petah Tikvah located in the central district has named its city square after US President Donald Trump.

 

On Wednesday, the square was inaugurated to “thank the US president” for his support towards recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.



 

Previous year after Trump passed the order to recognize Jerusalem as the capital, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had thanked the US president for “making history” calling it a “bold decision”. In December, 2017, Trump in an executive order had decided to move the US embassy to Jerusalem amid largescale protests in Gaza. The US embassy was opened in Jerusalem in May last year as Israel celebrated.




During the ceremony at Petah Tikvah, Mayor Rami Greenberg said, “The oldest city of the State of Israel, shows its gratitude to President Donald Trump. The US President who is a big fan of the State of Israel, who helps us in difficult times, from an economic, political and security point of view. He recognized Jerusalem as the eternal capital of the State of Israel, the unified capital, and the Golan Heights.”


The mayor further added, “There was never a better president, not in the United States or anywhere else in the world, that supported Israel in its fight against extremist organizations that are here in the Middle East.”

 

During the inauguration Greenberg said, “He should be thanked for all that he did and all that he will do and also to show to other leaders in the world that this is the right way and whoever will go the right way we will show our gratitude here in Petah Tikva.”
