Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh has said a Donald Trump victory in the upcoming presidential elections in the United States will be disastrous for his people – and the world at large.
In comments made during a meeting with European legislators Shtayyeh said the last four years of the Trump administration have greatly harmed the Palestinians.
He said if they are going to live another four years with President Trump, God help and the whole world, repeating comments he made a day earlier in a virtual address to European Parliament.
Shtayyeh said if things are going to change in United States, he thinks this will reflect itself directly on Palestinian-Israeli relationship, referring to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden winning the November 3 polls.
His comments reflected a sense of extreme anxiety after a series of controversial moves by Washington, including recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in late 2017 and subsequent relocation of the embassy there.
