Real estate magnate and television celebrity Donald Trump plans to bring his real estate empire to Israel by building a world class golf course in Ashkelon, Globes reported.

Trump is interested in building a course on a 210-acre site on the Mediterranean coast, adjacent to the Nitzanim Nature Reserve. The project will include an 18-hole course, 650 hotel recreation units, a convention hall, a country club, and commercial space.

“I am excited about the plans to build a world-class golf center along the beautiful Mediterranean coast. I have great affection for Israel and its people, and I believe that Israel is a worthy place to be included in the list of communities which host Trump golf centers,” Trump said in a letter to Ashkelon Mayor Benny Vaknin.

The famously outspoken Trump has expressed interest in Israel for years. He also endorsed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in elections last January, calling him a “great man and great prime minister.”

If built, the golf course would be Israel’s second full course behind the Caesarea Golf & Country Club.

    This is exciting business news. Investing in Israel is a way of saying ” America loves Israel and we are your ally!” Trump is a positive ambassador for America.
