As a thank you to President Trump for his historic recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced on Twitter Tuesday that he's going to be naming a Golan community after the president.

In his message, Netanyahu recognized “a need to express our appreciation by calling a community or neighborhood on the Golan Heights after Donald Trump. I will bring that to the government [for approval] soon.”

On March 9, Trump made history by becoming the first U.S. president to recognize Israeli sovereignty in the disputed territory. 

Netanyahu won his fifth term in Israel's elections earlier this month. It was a nailbiter though and the leader is now working to form a government.
