Trump deletes Abbas tweet after Palestinian leader lies to him

Trump initially tweeted that it was an “honor” to meet with Abbas, but soon deleted the post

Shortly after meeting with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas last week, US President Donald Trump took to Twitter to say what an "honor" it had been to host the head of the PLO.

The post was retweeted thousands of times.

But hours later, Trump deleted it, giving rise to speculation that the American was angered by Abbas' bald-faced lies.

"Mr. President, I affirm to you that we are raising our youth, our children, our grandchildren on a culture of peace," Abbas claimed, as he and Trump tried to sleuth out what's holding up Mideast peace.

Abbas continued: "And we are endeavoring to bring about security, freedom and peace for our children to live like the other children in the world, along with the Israeli children in peace, freedom and security."

Many, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, fired back, noting that Abbas' Palestinian Authority uses the massive amounts of foreign aid it receives to provide large stipends to Palestinian terrorists arrested by Israel.

It also routinely names Palestinian schools, parks and summer camps after the most blood-soaked terrorists – those who have managed to kill the most Jews.

Netanyahu did not even get into what Palestinian children are taught in local schools, where teachers and textbooks refer to Jews as sub-human, blood-thirsty monsters. And the incitement is even worse on after-school programming on Palestinian Authority-controlled television.
