Through having stolen property named after Trump and photo-ops with his fellow global establishment like Kim, Erdogan, Putin, Netanyahu, Xi etal Trump's one success will be the marketing of his brand name. A brand name that will live in infamy.

Towns, roads and “settlements” for Jews and Jews only. Just imagine if the word Jews was replaced with whites?

Palestinian lives matter.... well, apparently not!

Trump's taking 2020.

For him to do so, he and his fellow global elite need even more support from far right media and especially the 'foreign' media backing him once again using fake news and alt facts aimed at their intellectually vulnerable market.

I guess if they called it Tangerine ****, no one would want to live there.

On a serious note, occupying powers exercise no legal sovereignty over the territory they occupy. The Golan Heights belongs to the Syrian people. And an occupying power that transfers its own civilians into occupied territory for the purposes of colonization is committing a war crime.

I guess it's appropriate that Trump has a war crime named after him.

After everything that has happened to the jewish people throughout history, you would think they would show a little empathy to others. Such arrogance....

There is no far right media, but there are rural people that liberals overlook and have been for years and years.

and especially the 'foreign' media backing him once again using fake news and alt facts aimed at their intellectually vulnerable market.

I worry more about the fake liberal msm Constantly using fake news to sway people.

Its original neighborhood of Bruchim, which will be rebranded as Trump Heights, is home to less than a dozen.

Spare us. Go down the bottom of the hill, build something there and call it Trump Depths. Be a lot more appropriate.

I love it! After Trump ends his term (whether its 2020 or 2024), he can go there, take up residency and retire. Then you won't have Trump to kick around anymore.

You've got to be kidding. That place will be a target as long as it's named after Trump. Was that how the Israelis managed to get Trump's support? We'll name a place after you! Cringe-worthy stuff.

The Israeli Governments actions are is a blatant disrespect of international law.

The international community has lost count of the number of UN Security Council Resolutions in respect to continued occupation, and the building of settlements.

United Nations Security Council resolution 497 leaves little doubt…..

Security Council Members Regret Decision by United States to Recognize Israel’s Sovereignty over Occupied Syrian Golan

UN Documents for Golan Heights (Israel/Syria)

The small town of Qela is home to under 300 people. Its original neighborhood of Bruchim, which will be rebranded as Trump Heights, is home to less than a dozen.

The French have a rather disconcerting noun. amour proper, “esteem must be found by the approval of others first”.

Could “Trump Heights” not be a direct reflection of the Presidents ego, self-conceit.

His stupid casino/hotel/strip club complex in Atlantic City is going to be torn down soon. Maybe he'll put a Tower in this town like he wants in Moscow.

I know that you think (or try to). What I was asking is if I can remind you in six months when your prediction fails, as it always does.

Sure - if I can remind you on Nov 3rd that your prediction failed spectacularly also...

But did you read the article? It might change your mind....an excerpt;

Between 1985 and 1989, a period when the economy was forging ahead and Trump was busy portraying himself as a billionaire with the Midas touch, his core businesses—apartment buildings, hotels, and casinos—somehow managed to lose $359.1 million. That was only the beginning. As the economy weakened, in 1990 and 1991, Trump’s core businesses racked up losses of $517.5 million. And, between 1992 and 1994, as the economy recovered, they lost another $286.9 million.
