‘It’s an incredible sight!’ Pro-Trump signs pop up all over Jerusalem ahead of U.S. Embassy move

President Donald Trump’s campaign promise to Make America Great Again is apparently going international.

With the expected opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem on Monday, Israeli and American flags are being displayed on several main streets. But the flags are not alone, as signs have popped up as well declaring “Trump, make Israel great,” and “Trump is a friend of Zion.”

While many of the president’s critics panned his decision to go ahead with moving the Embassy, Trump is being praised in Israel as a friend and ally.

His decision earlier this week to withdraw the U.S. from the disastrous Obama-era Iran nuclear deal came on the heels of revelations from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that Iran had sought to build and test nuclear weapons.

The first “U.S. Embassy” road signs went up in the nation’s capital earlier this week in anticipation of the move, a promise kept by Trump though several U.S. presidents had made the same assurances before.

The Friends of Zion Museum reportedly paid for the pro-Trump signs, displaying over 150 banners on buidlings and buses ahead of the move.

Conservative reporter Laura Loomer tweeted the many pro-Trump tributes she saw as she arrived in the city.

Trump’s slogan also got a nod from Iranians who praised the U.S. president for his decision on the Iran nuclear pact, thanking him with hashtags like #MakeIranGreatAgain and #ThankYouTrump.

While the mainstream media may not choose to focus on the pro-Trump sentiment, it is more than evident in Israel.
