Skip to comments.Trump furious with Abbas: You lied to me
Posted on 05/28/2017 11:23:50 AM PDT by Eleutheria5
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.

Beat me to it.
It’s axiomatic: Muslims lie.
Don`t assume Trump wasn`t aware that he was being lied to right up front. By letting it play out this way he showed that he entered into negotiations in good faith but was decieved.
president Trump, I believe, knows exactly what he is doing and saying...
he is nobody’s fool...
I’m surprised some in here haven’t figured this out yet...
President does or says something and automatically some in here start wringing their hands...Within a few days, when everything comes out, we see he knew just what he was doing or saying...
Trump seems to operate on good faith; when people lie and think they are clever, he will not take that bad faith lightly.
you sir have a future in Stand up comedy - Short and Pithy - Way too funny
Abbas played right into Trump’s hands.
The hand wringers could try ‘The Art of the Deal’ or Scott Adam’s Blog (”Dilbert”) since they’ve been unable to figure it out on their own.
It’s not like it’s all that hard to learn how he operates- but the fact that he continues to fool them (and the MSM) is a testament to just how effective he is.
Of course some are just spreading FUD- fear, uncertainty, and doubt- because they don’t want Trump to succeed. An unholy cabal of GOP neverTrumpers, the MSM, and the Obama Left.
Let them continue to unmask themselves.
Trump has every right to visit leaders and give them one chance not to lie.
When you lie your time with the US President is over.
I understand that liberals may have a problem with this policy but Trump needs to wary of his own swamp as well.
He is messing around with real money that the liberals have set in place for many years.
“Trump seems to operate on good faith”
I think you are right. To his detriment he seems to initially give people the benefit of doubt. Unfortunately this is very dangerous in the context of being POUTUS. These bastards play for keeps and people die and nations fall when you trust them then they renege and lie. We see it all the time here, just look at lyin Ryan smiling at DJT the whole time he’s shoving a knife in Trumps back.
Is not Mamoud Abbas actually Abu Mazen; the man who financed the 1972 terrorist attack on Jewish athletes at the Olympics in Germany?
Sure. Arab custom to take the name of your oldest son. “Abu Mazen” means “the father of Mazen.”
The number of Palestinians who want peaceful coexistence is related to the number who are gainfully employed by Jews.
The closest thing to a capitol in Jerusalem is the damned koranimal Dome of the Rock...
There’s also Yisrael Hayom, a free newspaper that threatens the circulation of the leftist rags.
[[Is not Mamoud Abbas actually Abu Mazen; the man who financed the 1972 terrorist attack on Jewish athletes at the Olympics in Germany?]]
The very same murder.
The world actually expects Israel to make peace with this unrepentant murderer.
Not if he/she cleared it with Potus.
We don't have all the facts, nor are we entitled to them at this point.
I must trust that Trump can do his job withour your outrage...
I love you Pres Trump, but sure he did! That’s why you can’t broker a peace between them and Israel.. You learned that the hard way. You were making deals and fortunes... but this Biblical feud over that land... you need to bone up on who the enemy is and why. Arafat was offered even more than what they said they wanted, by bill clinton... and arafat refused the offer. They don’t want peace.. they don’t even want a piece of Israel’s land.. they want it ALL and they want every Israeli dead.. and then next is America! You dealt with the devil and expected him to be fair... not in any way shape or form.
A certain recent "Manchurian Candidate" president best remaining nameless certainly had no clue about that mantra...
