US President Donald Trump's administration has fanned extremism and weakened political moderates in the Middle East, a senior Palestinian official and chief negotiator warned on Friday.Saeb Erekat, Palestine Liberation Organisation secretary-general, said Trump's decision to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and his close alignment with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on issues such as Jewish settlements, were major destabilizing factors.Erekat was speaking days after some 60 Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces in chaotic demonstrations on the Gaza border on the same day the United States inaugurated its Jerusalem embassy.Erekat also accused Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, who is working on an upcoming peace plan with Jason Greenblatt, the US envoy for Middle East peace, of failing to support a two-state solution and not condemning the expansion of Jewish settlements.
