As President Trump reviewed the VIP line during the official welcoming ceremony at Ben-Gurion Airport, he engaged in conversation with Minister of Transportation (Likud) Yisrael Katz.
PM Netanyahu introduced Katz as Minister of Intelligence & Transportation. During their brief dialogue, Mr. Trump asked Katz “what do you do” and he then explained the regional initiative to connect to Saudi Arabia and Arab Gulf nations by railroad via Jordan to Israel and the Mediterranean.
Katz responded asking President Trump if he knows what this will be called, to which Katz added “Trump Rails”, bringing a smile to Mr. Trump’s face, adding “very nice”.
