Prince Turki said Trump had not been honest on the issue of Palestinian statehood. The prince added that his father, the late King Faisal, who ruled the kingdom in the 1960s and 1970s, would have been disappointed that the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain signed onto the recent accord without a solution for the Palestinians.
“His (King Faisal’s) decision to put oil sanctions on the United States after the Americans decided to give more aid to Israel during the Ramadan War [in 1973 was] for the reason to force the United States to be an honest broker between Israel [and] the Arab world,” Prince Turki told CNBC’s Hadley Gamble in an interview from Jiddah.
“And I must say that President Trump has not been such an honest broker. So yes, I think the late king would have been disappointed.”
