US President Donald Trump said on Monday that the US 'foolishly' gave aid to Pakistan over the course of 15 years but Islamabad remained deceitful by providing safe havens to 'terrorists' from Afghanistan.



"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. They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!," Trump said in a late-night tweet.

Last week, the Pakistan Army while rejecting the Trump administration’s pressure to do more in the fight against terrorism, insisted that Pakistan had done enough and could not do more for anyone.

In what appears to be a policy decision, the unusually candid statement – coming from Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor, the chief military spokesperson – suggested that Pakistan would not accept any further US demands – something that can potentially unravel ties between Islamabad and Washington.

In recent weeks, senior Trump administration officials have repeatedly called on Pakistan to demonstrate that it was sincere in tackling the problem of terrorism.

Parvez Malik | 2 years ago | Reply | Recommend The keep phrase in the Trump tweet being "thinking of our leaders as fools." Once again his narcissism is for every one to see - implying all others before him were fools and he is the wise one. Truth is all US Presidents since Bill Clinton were fools. That is why US is now a shadow of itself it was till 2000. Now the biggest fool of them all is making sure that it ends up worse.
