On slashing Pak’s help, Trump says ‘they didn’t execute a damn thing for us’

The ties between your two countries strained after Trump strike out at Pakistan for offering secure havens to “agents of chaos” that destroy Americans in Afghanistan and warned Islamabad that it has “much to reduce” by harboring terrorists

 

US president Donald Trump on Sunday defended his administration’s decision to lower aid to Pakistan saying the latter doesn’t carry out “a damn factor for all of us” despite getting billions of dollars from America.

The US suspended almost $2 billion in army aid to Pakistan early this year for not taking decisive action against terrorists operating from its soil. The Trump administration offers since conveyed its discomfort and anticipations for Islamabad tying counter-terrorism measure to improvement in ties.

Osama bin Laden lived in Pakistan and the united states were helping Pakistan, the president said within an interview that aired on Fox News Sunday. “We were providing them with $1.3 billion a year — which we don’t give them any more, incidentally, I ended it because they don’t do anything for all of us, they don’t execute a damn thing for us.”

“You understand, living – think of this – residing in Pakistan, beautifully in Pakistan in what I assume they considered a good mansion, I don’t know, I’ve seen nicer.”

“But living in Pakistan right up coming to the army academy, everyone in Pakistan knew he was there,” he added.

He was discussing the big home bin Laden had lived in Abbottabad where he was killed in a raid by US SEALs in 2011.

Pakistan had repeatedly denied the government was aware bin Laden was residing in that house near to Pakistani’s elite military academy. Nonetheless, it has never had the opportunity to convince People in America, who continue steadily to} believe Islamabad knew of it.

US-Pakistan relations have been in a downward spiral since and continue steadily to plummet because of perception in Washington DC that Islamabad provides doe nothing at all to take decisive action against terrorists operating from its soil in Afghanistan and in India.
