Beitar Jerusalem soccer team with the city’s largest club is so pleased by President Trump’s decision to relocate the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem that it’s decided to “honor” the president by adopting his name.
This came 24 hours before the United States opened their new embassy in Jerusalem, Beitar Jerusalem FC have announced that from now on they will be known as Beitar “Trump” Jerusalem.
This is in honour of the courageous embassy move by Donald Trump late last year.
Beitar Jerusalem, the city’s largest club, will rebrand as “Beitar Trump Jerusalem,” according to an announcement on the team’s official Facebook page Sunday.
“President Trump has shown courage, and true love of the Israeli people and their capital, and these days other countries are following his lead in giving Jerusalem its rightful status,” the club wrote. “The football club Beitar Jerusalem, one of the most prominent symbols of the city, are happy to honor the President for his love and support with a gesture of our own.”
