Trump said to tell Jordan king: Israel will have a PM named Muhammad if no deal

Israel’s Channel 10 claims the US president made the remark half-jokingly after Abdullah warned that many young Palestinians now want ‘one state with equal rights’

US President Donald Trump reportedly told Jordan’s King Abdullah II at the White House a few weeks ago that, in the absence of a negotiated solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Israel will have a prime minister named Muhammad in a few years time.

Trump’s reported remark was detailed on Sunday night by Israel’s Channel 10 news, which described it as “sarcastic” and “semi-jocular,” but also as containing a grain of truth. The TV report said its veracity had been confirmed by both an Israeli and an American source, but that the White House and the Jordanian Embassy in Washington, DC, have refused to comment on it.
