Kerry urges Abbas to “resist Trump, stay strong”

Jan 26, 2018

Former US Secretary of State John Kerry sent a message to Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas urging him to “stay strong in his spirit and play for time and not yield to President Trump’s demands.” Kerry offered to help the Palestinians, hinting that Trump would not be around for long and he, himself, may be considering another run for president in 2020. “Maybe it’s time for the Palestinians to present their own plan”, said Kerry, who during the presidency of Barack Obama, tried and failed to negotiate peace between Israel and the Palestinians.
