TRUMP TOWN? New Jerusalem Neighborhood May be Named After Trump

Zeman previously voiced support for President Donald Trump's decision to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, which sparked outrage among Palestinians and across the Muslim world.

Asked about the embassy opening, he praised the location in Arnona, in West Jerusalem, as an ideal spot.

He initially called it "Embassy Town" but then said he might call it "Trump Town".

The Trump administration announced in February that it would shift the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

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

He urged countries that do not recognize the state of Palestine to do so with East Jerusalem as its capital, and to support Palestine's accession to global organizations.

Mogherini, on the other hand, that while the EU general secretariat does not have veto power on any of its members, she nevertheless said that no member state is going to act against the European consensus on this subject.

At a gala celebration at the Prague Castle, the country's President Milos Zeman said that the opening of an honorary consulate and the appointment of businessman Propper as the honorary consular were the first two steps in a three step process that would eventually lead to the relocation of the country's embassy.

While the United States will eventually move into a purpose-built embassy, its diplomats will initially operate out of the consulate in Jerusalem which is now being upgraded.

Trump said that when he questioned David Friedman, his pick to be the US ambassador to Israel, about the $1 billion cost, Friedman said that he could renovate an existing USA property for $150,000.

He told a story of being mid-signature on a document signing off on construction of the new facility when he noticed a billion-dollar price tag. I said, 'What?' He said, 'I can build it for United States dollars 150,000, the embassy. The building, which is in the southern Jerusalem neighborhood of Arnona, will initially consist of the USA ambassador and a small team, the White House said in January. Let's not go from a billion dollars to $150,000. But he added that he stopped short mid-signature - after jotting "Donald" but before "Trump" - when he realized the cost was too high. We have a building, we have the site.
