President Donald Trump reportedly shouted at Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas during their meeting in Bethlehem on Tuesday, Israel’s Channel 2 reports.
According to the channel, Trump reportedly yelled at Abbas, “You lied to me in Washington when you talked about commitment to peace, the Israelis showed me you were personally responsible for incitement.”
Palestinian sources contradicted the report telling Channel 2 the meeting between the two leaders was ‘calm.’
In his speech after the meeting, Trump insisted that terror must not be “rewarded,” a comment seen as a criticism of the PA’s funding for families of imprisoned or killed terrorists.
