USA ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley threatened on Tuesday that the U.S. would cut funding to the UN's Palestinian refugee relief agency if the Israeli-Palestinian peace process fails to move forward. In his remarks, Trump explicitly said that Jerusalem was the capital of Israel and the USA would be moving its embassy in the country to the holy city from Tel Aviv.

The US gave $357m to the Palestinian Authority in 2016, according to The Times of Israel. The tweets also came after the White House confirmed that the USA plans to withhold some of its aid to Pakistan to pressure the country into better counterterrorism cooperation with the US.

It is important to mention here that just when Trump was criticizing Palestine over hindering negotiations, Israel enacted a controversial law that would essentially make peace in the Middle East (further) unattainable.

Since the 1993 Oslo Accords, the USA has been among the major donors to the Palestinian Authority (PA), created to manage limited self-governance in parts of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
