Senior Palestinian Authority leaders slammed President Donald Trump Thursday, rejecting his demand that they agree to renew final status negotiations with Israel and show respect to the United States for the hundreds of millions of dollars a year they receive in aid. Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland Thursday, President Trump met with Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, touting the planned transfer of the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and declaring the issue of Jerusalem off the table in terms of final status talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. The hardest subject they had to talk about was Jerusalem. We took Jerusalem off the table. So we dont have to talk about it anymore. They never got past Jerusalem. We took it off the table. We dont have to talk about it anymore," said Trump. The president added that the PA had disrespected the US when it snubbed Vice President Mike Pence during his recent visit to Israel. "They disrespected us a week ago by not allowing our great vice president to see them, and we give them hundreds of millions of dollars in aid and support tremendous numbers, numbers that nobody understands" charged the president. Following President Trumps declaration recognizing Jerusalem as Israels capital, PA chief Mahmoud Abbas nixed a planned meeting with Pence, whose trip to Israel had originally been scheduled for December 18th. The PA also labelled Pence persona non-grata. Responding on Thursday to President Trumps comments at Davos, senior PA lawmaker and diplomat Hanan Ashrawi the president, labelling him and Vice President Pence oppressors. Not meeting your oppressor is not a sign of disrespect, it is a sign of self-respect, said Ashrawi.

Sounds like a personal problem.
They just need to go back to their homeland in Jordan.

He’s not “oppressing” them. He’s even offering them money to agree to a great deal.
Hey PA, stop teaching Palestinians to KILL ISRAELI’S from the moment they are born how about that..how about not paying off the families of these murderers when they kill innocent Israeli women and children how about them apples
Jordan doesn’t want them, neither does Saudi Arabia or Lebanon..notice all these countries cry about the poor poor Palestinians yet no country actually wants them
Stop giving these losers money. Don’t communicate with them. Kill them if they bother us.
That’s freedom fighting. They’re fighting freedom tooth and nail.
Oh well... happens.
Good for Donald Trump....
Heard that loser John Ketchup Kerry told the PA to fight Trump..figures..leftist Jew hating a-holes siding with the enemy
Sounds like a good start... but in the meantime we need to STOP giving the killers million of dollars... millions of dollars Americans work hard for...
Didn’t the palis just get a $50 million private jet for Dear Leader?
I think the Palis are feeling the Burn....
Jordan has a so-called palestinian Queen. Just dump them in.
Trump isn’t oppressing the Fakestinians. All he’s doing is having two scoops of ice cream whenever he damned well pleases, driving the entire Left and media (but I repeat myself) stark raving, bark-at-the-Moon, nuts and fixing lots of what’s wrong with this country so that we don’t become just another Turd World shithole.
But oppressing? Nah.
Just stop the payment on the February 1st check. Don’t give a reason. They will get the picture.
Yer formatting sucks....LOL
How can The Donald oppress some Middle East Fairy Tale?
