Palestinians will not be 'blackmailed' by Trump funding threat: senior official

The Palestinians will not be "blackmailed" by US President Donald Trump, a senior official said Wednesday, after he threatened to cut aid to them worth more than $300 million a year.

"We will not be blackmailed," senior Palestinian official Hanan Ashrawi said in a statement.

"President Trump has sabotaged our search for peace, freedom and justice. Now he dares to blame the Palestinians for the consequences of his own irresponsible actions!"
