President Donald Trump lambasted Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, after the president claims the PA leader deceived him regarding his partys involvement in anti-Israel incitement.
Trump met with Abbas in the PA-controlled city of Bethlehem last week during his two-day visit to Israel. The two held a joint press conference, at which time the president praised Abbas commitment to restarting negotiations with Israel for a final status agreement.
But according to a report by Channel 2 Sunday evening, the closed-door meeting between the president and the PA chairman was anything but cordial.
A US official present during the meeting claims the president expressed outrage with Abbas, yelling at him regarding Abbas claims that his Fatah faction was not involved in anti-Israel and anti-Semitic incitement.
You tricked me in Washington, the president is said to have yelled at Abbas, referencing the PA leaders March trip to the US capital.
During his March get-together with the president, Abbas claimed he was dedicated to advancing peaceful relations with Israel, and that the PA was not engaged in incitement against the Jewish state.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu publicly called out Abbas claim, noting the PAs continued material support for jailed terrorists and promotion of hateful propaganda encouraging young Arabs to take up arms against Israel.
"I heard President Abbas yesterday say that the Palestinians teach their children peace, said Netanyahu. Unfortunately, that's not true. They name their schools after mass murderers of Israelis and they pay terrorists, he said at the opening of a meeting with the Romanian prime minister in Jerusalem.

When you’re a Muslim, you lie.
It’s what you do.
Trump doesn’t tolerate liars.
Bad move by Abbas.
What else would you expect from a terrorist?
Expect PRESIDENT TRUMP to acknowledge JERUSALEM as ISRAEL’S CAPITOL.
It is called Taqiyya
DJT needs to Google, “takiyyaa”. Who would EVER believe any Muslim?
Wait: “A US official present during the meeting claims the president expressed outrage ..”
How many US officials were present? They should be grilled, polygraphed, and whoever told this story should be GONE.
It doesn’t matter that the story may warm conservative’ hearts. A leak of a private POTUS meeting is a leak. Period.
You also behead.
The President is learning late that the Palestinians are never to be trusted. Only a tiny minority want peace, if it means Israel’s continued existence.
If Trump is actually surprised by Abbas, we’re in deeper trouble than we thought.
Hopefully, this is just a calling out for public exposure.
>> When youre a Muslim, you lie.
>> Its what you do.
And it’s what we know.
I’m not sure I trust Israeli news outlets any more than I trust American news outlets.
I suspect President Trump was fully aware of this all along. Now he has given Abbas the benefit of the “doubt”, and been burned before the public....leaving him free to act in a way which favours Israel.
Abbas is a dead man if he signs a peace treaty.Besides, the money flowing to them may dry up and they may have to work.
What was he supposed to do? Not be Abbas? Bit late for that.
It takes some brass ones to yell at a terrorist leader in a city he controls.
DJT is learning about Taqiyya the hard way.
“...If Trump is actually surprised by Abbas, were in deeper trouble than we thought...”
I don’t believe we’re in ANY trouble because of President Trump...Just the opposite...
BTW, who is the “we” to who you refer???
