Official PA daily edits statement from U.S. President Trump by removing call to cease terror and incitement

Headline : “Trump: I expect to work with [PA] President Abbas to establish peace; the [PA] president during a press conference with his American counterpart: The freedom of our people is the key to peace, the demands of the prisoners are just”

“US President Donald Trump said that the US expects to work with [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas to achieve peace, advance the Palestinian economy, and make efforts in the war on terror.
He added that establishing peace must take place in an environment free of violence (see Trump’s actual statement below –Ed.), and noted that the US will help the Palestinian side and the Israeli side to reach a permanent agreement.”

The article has ignored US President Donald Trump’s call to stop funding terror by only paraphrasing the first half of his statement from the joint press conference with PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas in Bethlehem on May 23, 2017. Trump’s full statement was as follows: “Peace can never take root in an environment where violence is tolerated, funded or rewarded. We must be resolute in condemning such acts in a single, unified voice.”
