Skip to comments.Trump officials to announce closure of Palestinian Liberation Organization office in DC: report

National security adviser John Bolton is expected to announced Monday that the U.S. will shutter the Palestine Liberation Organization's (PLO) office in Washington, D.C., The Wall Street Journal reported.
The Trump administration will not keep the office open when the Palestinians refuse to start direct and meaningful negotiations with Israel, Bolton is expected to say, according to a draft of his speech reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.
Bolton will reportedly threaten the International Criminal Court with sanctions if it carries out investigations into the U.S. and Israel.
ADVERTISEMENT The action against the PLO, which serves as the main entity representing the Palestinian people, comes as the Trump administration takes a harsher stance toward Palestinians amid ongoing Middle East peace negotiations.
The State Department announced late last month that the U.S. will cut more than $200 million in economic aid for Palestinians and direct the money toward other projects. A State Department official said the decision was made "at the direction of President Trump" to ensure the money is spent "in accordance with U.S. national interests and [will] provide value to the U.S. taxpayer."

The $200 million was nothing more than a bribe anyway.
About time we cut the PLO off.
Am I the only one curious why the WSJ is previewing a speech by John Bolton before it's given? WTH??
Imagine the shouting, screeching demonstrations.
Ocasio, Bernie,Corey Booker,I’m Still With Hillary feminists, BLM, people who want cops targeted and murdered in cold blood,overt anti semites who support Christians and Jews being tortured and killed in the middle east by ISIS....
What a sight.
Like 1968 when the Silent Majority said NO to the campus buildings being occupied and the blacks burning down cities and police squad cars, the new “undecideds” may say NO to the Dems at the midterm polling places.
That’s great!... ...Who’s next?
OMG! This man gives me great joy every day...
HA! Loving it!
Ahhh....Bolton doing his job. He’s experienced and tough as nails. A real bonus to have him in the Trump camp.
“”ensure the money is spent “in accordance with U.S. national interests”
GREAT! 200$ million more for the WALL!!!
This makes my day
Now! Close CAIR while youre at it.
Supposed to say...
“Thats great!... ...Whos next?”
I’m for starting in this hemisphere. We should be way beyond supporting all these $hit hole countries who encourage their people to come here illegally. Especially Mexico.
I hope they declare those who were here “staffing” that office persona non grata, and tell them that they have 24 hours to leave the country.
We (and the Europeans) propped them up for decades with steady cash flows, that allowed them to solidify control - and they have proven themselves unworthy.
It will be challenging to stand up a credible political alternative to those thugs. It will likely require a real upheaval in the Palestinian political elite. Time for new leadership.
I agree.He deals in the real world not some Lib fantasy.
