RAMALLAH, West Bank — Some 100,000 Palestinians have written letters to US President Donald Trump asking him to actively support the Palestinian movement for sovereignty. 

The Youth Center for Development and Innovation in Nablus collected the letters — written by Palestinians in the West Bank, the Gaza Strip and the diaspora — in just 11 days through Jan. 20, the day Trump was inaugurated. The center has summarized the letters in an 11-page missive to be submitted to Trump through official channels.
