ORLANDO, Fla. – Florida could one day be home to the Trump Highway.

Republican State Rep. Anthony Sabatini tweeted Wednesday that he will sponsor an amendment to rename U.S. Highway 27 to “President Donald J. Trump Highway.”

“Looking forward to working on this important designation honoring one of the greatest presidents in American history -- and our first Floridian president,” Sabatini tweeted.

Trump on Wednesday flew to Florida, where he will make Mar-a-Lago his home in Palm Beach, before Joe Biden was sworn in as president.

U.S. 27 runs from Miami to the Panhandle in Florida.

Other roads have been named after politicians in Florida.

Florida’s Turnpike is officially known as the Ronald Reagan Turnpike, though it’s rarely called by the former president’s name.

The Orlando City Council also renamed a short section of Mission Road the Barack Obama Parkway in 2009.
