Republican bill proposes renaming DC’s Dulles airport in honor of Donald Trump


A group of GOP House Representatives is pushing to rename Washington Dulles International Airport, the Washington, DC area’s primary international airport, to the Trump International Airport.

House GOP Chief Deputy Whip Guy Reschenthaler introduced the bill on Friday, along with cosponsoring Reps Michael Waltz, Angy Ogles, Chuck Fleischmann, Paul Gosar, Barry Moore, and Troy Nehls, according to Fox News.

“In my lifetime, our nation has never been greater than under the leadership of President Donald J. Trump,” Reschenthaler told the outlet. “As millions of domestic and international travelers fly through the airport, there is no better symbol of freedom, prosperity and strength than hearing ‘Welcome to Trump International Airport’ as they land on American soil.”

If passed, “the Washington Dulles International Airport in Virginia shall after the date of the enactment of this Act be known and designated as the ‘Donald J. Trump International Airport,’” the bill states.
