The Donald John Trump Western Wall Train Station

Building a train link from Ben-Gurion airport to the heart of East Jerusalem's Old City is controversial enough – the affront to Occupied Palestinians compounded by naming it after the US president.
It's for his Jerusalem declaration and intention to move Washington's embassy to the city, disgraceful actions by a rogue leader – abandoning any pretense of treating Palestinians equitably, back-stabbing them with no remorse, operating like a tinpot despot domestically and abroad.
Israel's transportation minister Yisrael Katz announced the plan. The Israel Railways steering committee approved extending a new high-speed Jerusalem/Tel Aviv train line close to the Old City's Western Wall.
It's one of two proposed extensions, its final stop to be inside the Old City's Jewish Quarter, also stopping in the city-center.
