(LibertySociety.com) – Former President Donald Trump is arguably one of the most popular Republicans to ever sit in the Oval Office. In 2020, more than 74 million people cast their ballots for him, more than any other sitting president. And one state has now ensured generations of Americans remember him.
On Friday, May 28, Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt (R) signed Senate Bill 624 into law. The legislation renames a 20-mile stretch of US Highway 287 from Boise City to the Texas border. Starting November 1, the road will be called “President Donald J. Trump Highway.” The Department of Transportation will also place permanent markers on the road to alert people of the name change.

Oklahoma isn’t the only state considering adding the former president’s name to a highway. In Florida, state Rep. Anthony Sabatini (R) introduced legislation to rename US Highway 27 after Trump. A lawmaker in West Virginia introduced a similar bill. Those two bills have not passed yet.
