PLO official: Trump is “stupid” and “crazy,” threatens security and peace in the entire world

Posted text: “A rally of solidarity with Venezuela in front of its embassy in Ramallah, and the speech of Fatah Movement Central Committee [member and PLO Central Council member] Jamal Muhaisen.”

PLO Central Council member Jamal Muhaisen (holding a photo of Venezuelan President Maduro): “Today the entire world is suffering because of the US president - a stupid and crazy president - who is trying to cause conflicts to break out throughout the world. He has been threatening the security and peace not only in Venezuela, Latin America, or the Persian Gulf, or against Iran or China, but the entire world."

Jamal Muhaisen also holds the positions of Fatah Central Committee member and Fatah Commissioner of Mobilization and Organization in the West Bank.

Muhaisen said this during the crisis in Venezuela:
Venezuelan crisis 2018-2019 - Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro won a second term in the Venezuelan presidential election in May 2018; however, the election was determined to be fraudulent and Venezuela has been considered to be without a president by most of the international community since Jan. 10, 2019, when Nicolás Maduro’s legitimate term ended. Maduro nevertheless has continued as president, supported by countries like Russia, China, Mexico, Syria, Iran, and Turkey. The US, Canada, the EU, and others have condemned this and encouraged support for Venezuela's opposition leader Juan Guaidó as the country’s legitimate president. Guaidó proclaimed himself “acting president” on Jan. 23, 2019, but Maduro has refused to step down. The countries supporting Guaidó have been accused by Russia and others of fomenting a coup. Dozens have been killed in protests against Maduro and his government, and the people are suffering under food and medicine shortages.
