He complained about "when they disrespected us a week ago by not allowing our great vice president to see them and we give them and we give them hundreds of millions of dollars in aid and support".

He made a similar threat on Twitter earlier this month.

Israel regards Jerusalem as its "eternal and undivided" capital, while the Palestinians claim East Jerusalem - occupied by Israel in the 1967 Middle East war - as the capital of a future state. "Instead, most money goes to the United Nations, refugee or aid agencies and even Israel to pay for roads, welfare, schools, security and other Palestinian projects".

Trump "should withdraw" his recent controversial decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, Rudeinah added. Trump said that the US-Israel relationship has never been stronger, and that he and Netanyahu are close personal friends.

Trump's Jerusalem announcement in December angered the Palestinians and jeopardized his own administration's effort to restart peace talks. Additionally, the Israeli premier is scheduled to meet with the leaders of Belgium, The Netherlands, Canada, Ukraine and Azerbaijan, as well as with the heads of major global corporations.

Mr Netanyahu said on Thursday that the nuclear deal was so deeply flawed that it guaranteed that Iran would get what it needed to make nuclear weaponry. Netanyahu told German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Davos yesterday that the only way to fix the nuclear deal "is to insert real, not cosmetic, fixes that will prevent Iran's nuclearization".

President Donald Trump plans to attend a reception with top corporate executives from the United States and Europe at the Davos economic forum this week, using the mountainside gathering for the global elite to push an economic agenda many there have spurned, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Trump said recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital helps peace negotiations between the country and Palestine. And they're going to have to want to make peace and they're going to want to make peace or we're going to have nothing to do with it any longer.

Mr Netanyahu said under any peace deal the capital of Israel would be Jerusalem, and the status quo of the Temple Mount would be maintained.

"We are ready for negotiations, but I do not see that they are as well".

Ever since the Oslo Accords were signed in 1993, the accepted mantra has been that a Palestinian state must be established alongside Israel, between the Jordan River and the Mediterranian in order to solve the Israeli-Arab conflict. It is a great proposal for the Palestinians.

He will also stress his "America First" policies and seek more reciprocal trade policies from USA allies, Cohn said, in keeping with Trump's belief that global trade deals are tilted against the United States. "I think it's a very good proposal for Israel".
