Hamas to set up'confrontation strategy to foil US Israeli moves on Jerusalem

"It's not only Pakistan that we pay billions of dollars to for nothing, but also many other countries, and others", he said.

Palestinian leaders do not give the USA any "appreciation or respect", Trump tweeted Tuesday night.

"Trump will not vanquish us", Mustafa Barghouti, chairman of the Palestine National Initiative and a member of the Palestinian Central Council, said on Ashams Radio Wednesday, after the USA president threatened to cut off aid to Palestinians living under Israeli occupation and refugees in the diaspora. Trump himself said that was evidenced by the Palestinian regime's latest refusal to even come to the negotiating table.

This is meant to take further control on East Jerusalem as Israel claims that Jerusalem is its "undivided Capital". He went on to suggest the U.S. shouldn't make any future payments due to their refusal to accept his peace process.

The Palestinians have long demanded East Jerusalem for the capital of their future state.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has previously stated Palestine would only agree to peace if Israel agreed to a two-state solution with East Jerusalem as the capital for a future Palestinian state.

On December 6, Trump formally had recognised Jerusalem as the Israeli Capital, calling it "a long overdue step to advance the peace process". In his remarks, Trump explicitly said that Jerusalem was the capital of Israel and the USA would be moving its embassy in the country to the holy city from Tel Aviv.

Trump's White House has responded that the Palestinian Authority was itself an obstacle to peace long before he ever came to the White House. "We're going to make sure they come to the table".

Nikki Haley, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said Tuesday the United States will stop contributing to a U.N. agency that gives humanitarian aid to Palestinians.

It was not immediately clear whether Trump was threatening all of the budget, worth $319 million in 2016, according to U.S. government figures. As of now they are not coming to the table but they ask for aid. "We don't care", he said, alluding to USA aid.

Husam Zomlot said he met Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas privately. "We're not giving the aid", Haley continued.

"We very much still want to have a peace process, nothing changes with that".

The law is created to make it increasingly hard to divide up Jerusalem in any future negotiations with the Palestinians.
