In the Old City of Jerusalem, a station of the future high-speed rail will be named after US President Trump.

The route is still in the first planning phase.Transportation Minister Katz said that Trump is being thanked for his - so literally - courageous and historic decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the state of Israel.

The "Donald John Trump Station" should be built in the Jewish quarter near the Wailing Wall.

Trump had visited the Wailing Wall in May. His decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital sparked unrest and protests in the Palestinian territories and in the Arab world.
