The new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem will be opened with a big ceremony on Monday. Ivanka and Jared will be there! I am not here to offer commentary on this developmentā€”it is deeply unpopular with basically the entire rest of the world, much like just about everything else the Trump administration has doneā€”but to point out that, in thanks for the move, a soccer team in Israel is renaming itself after President Trump:

ā€œThe 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. The chairmen of the club, the owner Eli Tabib and the executive manager Eli Ohana have decided to add to the clubā€™s title the name of the American President who made history, and from now on will be called Beitar Trump Jerusalem.ā€

So there will now be a top Israeli soccer club named after President Trump. Many people are saying this is a historic honor and that no international soccer clubs were ever named after the LOSER Barack Obama. Sad!
