After the brief meeting the president was asked about Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas’s recent attacks on Trump and his family.
The president warned the Palestinians to start working with the US or face cuts in US aid.
President Trump: “Uh, No I didn’t really read his remarks personally. I think I’m probably better off not seeing them, but we’ve done a lot for them, and hopefully they’re going to make peace for their people. You know what, it’s many years of killing people, it’s many years of killing each other. They have to be tired and disgusted of it. Let’s see what happens. I think eventually, very sound minds, I hope sound minds are going to prevail. And it would be a great achievement to mine that said it from day one if we could make peace between Israel and the Palestinians if we do that I would consider that one of our truly great achievements, but the money is on the table. You know the money was never on the table I tell you up front. We give them tremendous amounts, hundreds of millions of dollars a year that money is on the table because why should we do that as a country if they’re doing nothing for us and what we want to do for them has helped them. We want to create peace and save lives and we’ll see what happens, we’ll see what happens. But the money is on the table. Thank you very much!
