'The Western Wall is the holiest place for the Jewish people, and I chose to name the train station that leads to it after president Trump - following his historic and courageous decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel, ' Transportation Minister YisraelKatz told the Jerusalem Post.
US President DonaldTrump on December 6 signed a proclamation recognizing the Holy City as Israel's capital.

Katz's office said in a statement that the minister advanced the plan in a recent meeting with Israel Railways executives, and has fast-tracked it in the planning committees. The Western Wall is part of the structure that once held Jerusalem's holy temple, which was destroyed by the Romans in A.D. 70.
