Poll: Palestinian mistrust of Trump runs deep

RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) — An opinion poll shows that over 60 percent of Palestinians oppose resuming dialogue with the Trump administration after the U.S. cut hundreds of millions of dollars in aid.

The poll is another sign of trouble for the White House’s Mideast peace plan.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has already rejected the plan before it is released, saying the U.S. is not an honest broker. He cites its decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and cuts in aid to the Palestinians and the U.N. agency for Palestinian refugees.

Wednesday’s poll found 90 percent of respondents believe the U.S. is biased in favor of Israel. Sixty percent oppose resuming dialogue.

The Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research poll questioned 1,270 people and had a margin of error of 3 percentage points.
