Polisario hopes Biden will cancel Trump's Western Sahara deal. If not, there's always war

US President Donald Trump’s announcement last week that the United States was recognising Morocco’s claim over Western Sahara came as a gut punch to the Sahrawi independence movement.

If not, its officials warn, there is always the prospect of armed struggle.
