Meet Palestine’s anti-Trump cobbler

Meet the Palestinian cobbler who shows his disapproval of US President Trump by inking his name on shoes.

Shoes decorated with Donald Trump’s name, that is how a Palestinian cobbler shows his disapproval of the US president’s policies towards Palestinians.

Imad Haj-Muhammad began his unique form of protest in May 2018, after Trump broke with decades of US policy and moved the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

He sees similarities between Trump’s policies and those of British Foreign Secretary Lord Balfour, who wrote the Balfour Declaration in 1917.

The declaration was a pledge by Britain to establish a Jewish state in Palestine.

Imad also sells “Balfour” shoes and has put a sign on his shop door asking British and American shoppers to apologise for the actions of these leaders before entering.
