"There were too many false realities that were created - that people worship - that I think needed to be changed", Kushner told the Times, adding, "All we're doing is dealing with things as we see them and not being scared out of doing the right thing".

Palestinian leaders say Trump's White House is blatantly biased in favor of Israel and is seeking to blackmail them into accepting its terms.

Erekat added that the USA has accepted Israel's position on the designation of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, as well as the future status of settlements in the West Bank and the question of Palestinian refugees.

"All they've done is have their hand out asking for money, badmouth the United States, not come to the table on the peace deal - why would we have a PLO office?" she explained.

"The only thing this administration did since it came to office is just to take Israelis and Palestinians off the path to peace, off the path of the two-state solution", Erekat said.

The Palestinian leadership confirmed Monday the embassy would close soon, following reports of a leaked draft of a speech by National Security Advisor John Bolton last Sunday night that said the PLO mission would be shut down in the course of penalizing nations that seek prosecution against the U.S., Israel, or other allies at the International Criminal Court (ICC).

Uniquely, UNRWA grants refugee status to all descendants of Palestinians who left or fled Israel with the establishment of the state in 1948, swelling the number to an estimated five million at present, when the number of actual refugees from that conflict is estimated to be in the low tens of thousands.

Last week, Trump declared that the Palestinians would receive no further funding unless they returned to the negotiating table, while this week the administration announced it would shutter the Palestinians' diplomatic headquarters in Washington, since the facility is not being used for its stated objective of pursuing the peace process with Israel.

Zomlot on Thursday denounced the "unfortunate and vindictive" U.S. move to close the Palestinian mission.

The Palestinian Liberation Organization's mission is shown September 10, 2018 in Washington, DC.

The White House has chose to no longer support coexistence programs, as part of its general move to punish Palestinians for their refusal to engage with the administration, the report said.

It was the latest point of tension between the administration of President Donald Trump and the Palestinians, who cut off contact with Washington after Trump recognized the disputed city of Jerusalem as Israel's capital in December.

"Anything that's coming from the Americans is not going to be supported by the Palestinians", said pollster Khalil Shikaki according to AP. Both sides claim it as a capital.
