[Ed. – And Jerusalem has decided to name a nearby square for Trump. Who would have guessed this president would have “a name in Jerusalem”? The formal opening of the embassy is 14 May. The U.S. isn’t sending POTUS or VPOTUS, to help keep the security situation manageable.]
Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat visited the location of the new U.S. embassy on Monday to install its sign. The embassy, which President Trump announced would be moved from Tel Aviv back in December, will be the first Israeli embassy of any country to make its home in Jerusalem.
“This is not a dream – it’s reality,” Barkat said in a statement after installing the sign. “I thank President Trump for making this historic moment come to fruition. Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish people – and the world is beginning to recognize this fact.”
Along with the sign, Barkat also announced that he intended to name the nearby square, located at the junction of David Flusser Street and Kfar Etzion Street, after President Trump.
