American media revealed that US President Donald Trump intended to name an airport in the United States after a former president, before leaving the White House in January.
The Daily Beast quoted informed sources as saying that President Trump recently asked some aides and advisors about the mechanism for naming airports after a former US president.
The newspaper suggests that President Trump is seeking to name an airport in his name before leaving the White House next month, and one source told the newspaper that, since the 2020 elections, Trump asked what kind of “business, supplies and documents” are needed to name an airport in the name of a former president.
Another person close to Trump told the newspaper that the president during his presidency had spoken about this subject at least twice, specifically since early 2018, revealing his desire to own a national or international airport in the United States bearing the name “Donald J. Trump”, and that He hopes there will be an effort and direction to do so, similar to naming the national airport in the Washington, DC area, after President Ronald Reagan.
And it wasn’t just the airports, as a well-informed source also said that during his presidency he once heard Trump mutter about the type of naval aircraft carrier he also wants to build as “USS Donald Trump.”
