FILE - In this March 27, 2017, file photo, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas speaks during a new conference at EU headquarters in Brussels. President Donald Trump will press Abbas to end payments to families of Palestinians imprisoned in Israeli jails, according to U.S. officials, one of several actions Washington believes could lead to resumed peace talks with Israel. Other actions include a Palestinian end to anti-Israel rhetoric and incitement of violence, said officials familiar with planning for the meeting. It will be Trump and Abbas’ first face-to-face discussion. (AP Photo/Virginia Mayo, File)
