TAWDE KHABARE: Trump’s Hard Stance on Pakistan Discussed
The US President Donald Trump has slammed Pakistan for lies and deceit and said that the US had "foolishly" given Pakistan $33 billion in aid in the last 15 years.
“The United States 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.” Trump wrote on his Twitter, adding that: “They give safe havens to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!”
This comes after his administration is strongly considering whether to withhold $255 million USD in aid to Pakistan as it feels Islamabad is not doing enough to counter terrorism.
