Trump Yells at Abbas: Violence Will Not Be “Tolerated, Funded, or Even Rewarded”

The President of the United States, in no uncertain terms decided to dispose of all the niceties by facing Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and surprising him with a frank and most stern reproof.  The reports by Israeli news indicate that President Trump literally raised his voice in anger at the fact that Abbas “lied” to him while he was visiting in the United States at the White House regarding his determination for peace and security in the Middle East region, just east of the Mediterranean.

Trump did for the Palestinian leader in his first 100 days what Obama would not do for our close ally in the region, Israel, during two full terms.  The President met with Mahmoud Abbas at the White House in an attempt to gauge for himself exactly what was going on between the two sides in that region.  Trump has spent the better part of his entire life gauge what the opposition wants and needs.  He has inked untold numbers of contracts based on his nuanced abilities to know what the other side is thinking.  Some of his business partners have called it a preternatural talent not possessed by just any business owner.  For this reason, he was always engaged personally with negotiations that involved his empire.  Even his children possess this ability to a lesser degree.

This polished business approach allowed Trump to speak face-to-face with Abbas and ask him point-blank, “Do you want peace with Israel?”  The answer was an emphatic “yes.”  As Trump was visiting with Benjamin Netanyahu and had the opportunity to visit and speak with some of the most ingenious and hard-working intelligence agents in the world there in Israel, Trump learned about the many most recent betrayals of the Palestinian Authority and how it would be quite impossible for Abbas to be ignorant of such nefarious activities.  This was the equivalent of an icy cold shower for Trump and he does not take lying to his face very well, especially in these dire times of terror around the world and in our own country.

Breaking Israel News reported:

At their private meeting in Bethlehem last week, US President Donald Trump blew up at Palestinian Authority President Abbas over his lies about desire for peace and incitement to violence, an Israeli TV report said, citing an unnamed American source.

“You tricked me in DC!” Trump is reported to have shouted at the Palestinian leader, whom he hosted at the White House on May 3. “You talked there about your commitment to peace, but the Israelis showed me your involvement in incitement [against Israel].”

His outburst left the Palestinians in stunned silence, Israel’s Channel 2 reported, and tensions were high for several moments before both sides were able to get the meeting back on track. No evidence of the strain was visible in the joint press conference held after the private meeting, though Trump’s otherwise warm remarks included what many interpreted as a very pointed reference to the PA’s practice of paying salaries to terrorists and their families.

“Peace can never take root in an environment where violence is tolerated, funded and even rewarded,” he declared.

Trump's style of dealing with business adversaries was always backed up with sanctions, not working with that particular individual or company ever again.  As president, it is clear that he understands the difference between being a business and leader of the free world.  He and his administration will tread very carefully however, in light of this most recent situation.  Abbas may have gotten a free pass from the previous administration and world leaders too afraid of their own shadows to speak out frankly.

The Palestinian Authority leader will not get the kid-glove treatment from the new President of the United States.  That is a reality.
