Rajoub said: ‘I say on behalf of Fatah that we will not welcome [US President Donald] Trump’s vice [president] in the Palestinian territories. He asked to meet with [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas on Dec. 19 [2017] in Bethlehem, but this meeting will not take place. We ask the rest of the Arab capitals not to meet with an American leader so long as he says that united Jerusalem is the capital of the State of Israel.’”
