Neighborhood in Israel Named After President Trump
Israel has bestowed a huge honor on President Trump, naming a neighborhood in the Golan after him. This was in direct response to President Trump recognizing the Golan as sovereign Israeli territory.

According to Town Hall:

A new community in northern Israel honored President Trump over the weekend by naming the area "Trump Heights." 


The move is in response to President Trump officially recognizing the Golan Heights as sovereign Israeli territory. 

"After 52 years it is time for the United States to fully recognize Israel’s Sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which is of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and Regional Stability!" President Trump said in March.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited the White House for the official ceremony. 

The White House has also announced that the mid-east peace plan will be released by the Trump administration by the end of June.
