Israel Mulls Building 'Trump Town' for Foreign Embassies in Jerusalem

Flash floods destroy parts of Israel’s ‘apartheid wall

Months after President Trump announced the United States' plan to relocate the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem other nations have followed suit; prompting Israeli officials to construct a new diplomatic neighborhood and possibly name the site in honor of President Trump. "And it will be somewhat temporary, but it could be for many years", he said at a joint press conference with German leader Angela Merkel.

"There is an apparent pattern of embassies moving to Jerusalem, and we have to start getting ready now", said an Israeli official.

The president also repeated his claim that he had been prepared to sign his approval for a $1 billion embassy construction project in Jerusalem.

Trump said ultimately he authorized the spending of $300,000-$400,000 on the project.

Trump vowed to move the United States embassy to the holy city last December, when he also formally recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital. In addition, Trump's newly appointed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will visit Israel, as well as Jordan and Saudi Arabia, on his first foreign trip on the job this weekend.

The quarter was supposed to be called "Embassy Town", but Gallant said that he's thinking of naming it after US President Donald Trump.

"It is going to be attractive".

The announcement deepened anger across the Arab world, particularly among Palestinians who see East Jerusalem as the capital of their future state. "I had my name half-signed and I noticed the figure and I never got to the word 'Trump"'. The president said he spoke with his ambassador and favored the option to open the embassy in a section of an existing building, for $150,000. I said, "What?" He said, "I can build it for $150,000, the embassy". I had "Donald" signed, but I never got to the word "Trump". "They were going to spend $1 billion and we're going to spend much less than $500,000".

"We have a great site".

The White House issued an official statement December 6 declaring that "it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel".
