The President accused them of unwillingness to negotiate peace with Israel
President Donald trump has threatened to stop U.S. aid to the Palestinians, accusing them of unwillingness to negotiate peace with Israel.
“We pay to the Palestinians hundreds of millions of dollars a year and receive no thanks, no respect,” trump wrote on Twitter on Tuesday.
The President, apparently, admitted that his controversial decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, may topple the peace process.
“We withdrew the issue of Jerusalem, the most difficult part of the negotiations, but in terms of when the Palestinians don’t want to talk about the world, why should we make these huge payouts for them in the future?” – he wrote.
Palestinian authority President Mahmoud Abbas said that the United States withdrew from the peace talks, recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and announcing plans to move its Embassy from tel Aviv.
