FL lawmaker working to rename major highway after President Trump

As President Trump concludes his term in the White House, a Florida lawmaker is working to rename a highway in his honor. 

Anthony Sabatini, one of the most pro-America state legislators in the country, announced he submitted an amendment to an upcoming transportation bill in the Florida House calling to rename U.S. 27 after President Trump.

“Looking forward to working on this important designation honoring one oft he greatest Presidents in American History,” Sabatini said in a tweet.

The highway, which currently goes by the Purple Heart Memorial Highway or the Claude Pepper Memorial Highway, would retain its dedication to Purple Heart veterans, according to the amendment, Rogue Review reports. 

Sabatini submitted the amendment for two reasons: one, because Trump is the first Floridian to hold the presidency; and two, to update the highway from a congressional memorial to a presidential one. 

In an interview with the Orlando Sentinel on Wednesday, Sabatini explained why he chose U.S. 27.

“It’s one of the most historic highways and one of the longest highways which goes through pretty much the whole state,” he said. “I just think it’s a pretty good choice.”

    Hopefully the highway will not provide signs with lies. and for sure the highway will have pot holes. Be sure to have security posted to avoid Trump’s supporters not to damage Georgia cars.

    Please tell Leo that I think he’s great. And that says a lot since he used to disgust me. Since he’s moved to support President Trump, he seems much happier and actually makes sense with what he says. Welcome to the light. He was in the dark for too long.

    I like the idea of naming a Hwy after President Trump, but maybe another Highway because I don’t want people to forget that it was named as the “Purple Heart” Highway on July 1, 2010 and I don’t see any markers up and down the Hwy, which is sad; I am a Veteran myself, a Veterans Advocate, in the Florida Veterans’ Hall of Fame and I am proudly married to a 2 PH recipient. Thank you.

    I don’t know about this particular highway. I live inn Washington State, was from California, please note the was. I think a highway named after him would be nice. I just think it may be too soon. There are so many people with raw emotions right now. I happen to think he did what he could in his presidency. I do believe he loves this country.
    There is not going to be unity as long as we have people who continue to hate him and continue to hurt and destroy him. Very sad.
    Hey Leo really enjoy seeing and listening to you.

    Oh hell no! Naming a dump site after him would be more appropriate after all he has done to the American people! What nerve!

    After everything that man has been through, and now seeing everything he warned us would happen when those cretins gained an office they should not be in for at minimum another 4 years, this feels like at least some vindication considering how little credit the man seems to get for pretty much anything.

    It’s about time Trump is getting credit for his work. He’s in fact the most peaceful president in history.
