The prime minister of the Palestinian Authority is not a fan of President Trump’s foreign policy.
Mohammad Shtayyeh blasted Trump on Monday during a virtual appearance with European lawmakers, according to the Times of Israel. He said that Trump’s policies in the Middle East have been damaging to Palestinians.
“If we are going to live another four years with President Trump, God help us … and the whole world,” Shtayyeh said.
Throughout his time in office, Trump has been a strident supporter of Israel and one of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s most loyal allies.
In one of Trump’s first major foreign policy moves as president, Jerusalem was recognized by the United States as Israel’s capital, and the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem was opened in 2018. The decision earned Trump plaudits in Israel but was angrily received by many Palestinians, some of whom died in violent protests over the embassy’s relocation.
