U.S. President Donald Trump's hard-line approach to the Palestinians is similar to herding cows for slaughter, a top Palestinian official said Tuesday.The comments came a day after the U.S. leader welcomed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Washington and ahead of the expected launch of Trump's plan for Israeli-Palestinian peace.Both the Palestinians and Israel see Jerusalem as their capital and the U.S. decision to move its Israel Embassy there prompted the Palestinians to say the White House could no longer be the primary mediator between the two sides.Shtayyeh also objected to Trump's suggestion that the Palestinians have walked away from peace negotiations, saying U.S. policies in favor of Israel have pushed the Palestinians away from any future process.Shtayyeh said the Palestinians fear the plan will be biased, creating a situation where it will be impossible to negotiate.
