An Israeli city, about six miles east of Tel Aviv, has named a traffic roundabout after U.S. President Donald J. Trump to thank him for his support for the country.
Mayor Rami Greenberg of Petah Tikva says his city—the oldest city in Israel—wants to express gratitude to President Trump for recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
"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," says Greenberg.
Greenberg names the downtown traffic circle in Petah Tikva, “Trump Square.” The square is near the city’s municipal building. It has a huge water fountain with illuminated sculptures showing the Israeli and American flags at the top of the structures.
In the center of the roundabout, a sign reads “Donald Trump Square—USA’s 45th president and the first to acknowledge Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel.”
