Oklahoma Lawmakers Rename Highway Stretch after Trump

Republican lawmakers in Oklahoma are honoring the 45th President of the United States by renaming a 20-mile stretch of highway after him.

According to The Daily Wire:

Under a new bill, signed by Republican Governor Kevin Stitt, Oklahoma will rename a 20-mile stretch of highway, between Boise City and the border with Texas, after the forty-fifth president. The highway, part of U.S. route 287, runs north to south through the Oklahoma panhandle.

According to The Oklahoman, lawmakers managed to rename the highway stretch after Trump with relative ease, having included the provision in an annual infrastructure naming bill. The lawmakers did, however, have to amend a bill that requires everyone except medal of honor recipients to have been dead for at least 3 years before a bridge or highway can be renamed in their honor.

Around the country, former presidents have often served as inspiration to people looking to name infrastructure, such as buildings, parks, or monuments.

Back in late April, a freshman Ohio lawmaker introduced a bill to formally rename Mosquito Lake State Park, a 7,000-acre park in Trumbull County, Ohio, to Donald J. Trump State Park. “This legislation is meant to honor the commitment and dedication that our 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, bestowed upon the great people of Trumbull County,” said state Rep. Mike Loychik in a statement, reports USA Today.

Hopefully, the first of many honors to be afforded him. Buildings, highways, schools, an Aircraft Carrier, fighter aircraft, and a spaceship! and more. Hopefully the Navy will save trash barges, garbage scows, and target ships for the likes Clinton, Obama, Biden, and Carter!

I wonder if people realize exactly where we are as a nation. When we have politicians that are willing to pay for a bioweapon to kill Americans, and open our borders to millions of people who may be human trafficking, drug smuggling, and killing our border agents, we are in grave trouble. That means one party, and corporations, and rinos are onboard the globalist plot to eliminate populations with these created viruses and use Cyber attacks to destroy America’s infrastructure and even food supply. POLITICIANS SIDING WITH AMERICA’S ENEMIES, IT ALL MEANS DESTRUCTION FROM WITHIN. We are hanging by a thread!

Bully for Gov. Kevin!! A man with brains, conscience and wisdom! Mr. Trump was elected precisely because he was no sycophantic politician like the rest of the fawning hypocrites, but a man true to his word, who kept all the promises the sleazy, self-serving DemonCrats and RINO’S would allow him to keep. A pox be upon all the lying, traitorous DemonCrats and RINO’S – and bravo, Mr. Trump!

How much do you want to bet that the “peaceful protesters” will burn tires, flags, spray paint it & attempt to block it with bull horns, vehicles & a mass of ravenous Trump HATERS. Hopefully it will be 120 degrees when they attempt this with big thunderstorms. This would truly be “the revenge of the gods”.
