A visit to Trump town in Golan Heights

US President Donald Trump is famous for putting his name on hotels and casinos.

But now Israel is naming an entire community after him in thanks for his having recognized the Golan Heights as part of Israel.

Israel gained control of the territory more than 50 years ago in the Six Day War.

But the United Nations and most countries still consider it occupied Syrian land.

Trump’s move was seen as a boost for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who said he’d rename Kela Bruchim in the US president’s honor.

The Israeli cabinet has approved the decision, but what might that look like?
