US President Donald Trump slammed Pakistan on New Year’s day as he hinted that his government would withdraw the annual $255 million aid to the terror-infested country. In a tweet on Monday, Trump said the US had foolishly given Pakistan more that $33 billion in aid since 2012 and received nothing but lies and deceit.
“The US has foolishly given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollars in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies and deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools,” the Republican leader said. He further accused Islamabad of harbouring the terrorists that the US was hunting in neighbouring Afghanistan. “They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more,” Trump said.
An announcement from Trump was around the corner as reports emerged a couple of days ago saying the administration was strongly considering to withhold the $255 million in aid to Pakistan, reflecting dissatisfaction with Islamabad’s inaction against terror networks.
