A spokesperson for Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas has said that Jerusalem is not for sale, responding to a threat by US President Donald Trump to cut annual aid to the Palestinian Authority.
The threat from Trump came in a tweet on Tuesday, which said the US could cut its $300 million annual aid to Palestinians because it gets “no appreciation or respect” in return.
“They don’t even want to negotiate a long overdue peace treaty with Israel… with the Palestinians no longer willing to talk peace, why should we make any of these massive future payments to them?” it read.
