Jerusalem football team changes name in honor of Trump

Jerusalem's leading football team announced it was changing its name to "Beitar Trump Jerusalem" as Israelis basked in national pride and pro-American fervor in preparation for the controversial US embassy move to the disputed city.

Beitar Jerusalem, which has won six premier league titles, said it was changing its name in honor of Donald Trump's historic decision, Telegraph reported.

"For 70 years has Jerusalem been awaiting international recognition, until President Donald Trump, in a courageous move, recognized Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel," it said in a statement on its Facebook page. "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."
