The President of the United States of America, Mr. Donald Trump is the most powerful man in the world. Right from the day he took charge of the White House, a huge section of media has opposed his moves but Mr. Trump has been doing things his way and creating a lot of buzz in America, and globally, too.
President Trump is very active on Twitter.com and he keeps sharing his thoughts and news with his massive army of followers. With over 45.5 million followers, Donald Trump is one of the most followed personalities on Twitter.
In his first tweet of 2018, the President of the United States of America slammed Pakistan using very strong words and exposed their hypocrisy in a hard-hitting tweet.
A week ago, the New York Times had reported that the Trump administration might withhold $225 million in aid over frustration with Pakistan’s handling of terror networks. Administration officials had also told the New York Times that a final decision is expected in the next few weeks.
Also, last week, Vice President Mike Pence told the American troops during a visit to Afghanistan that President Trump has put Pakistan on notice.
In August 2017, Donald Trump had accused Pakistan of providing safe haven to terrorist organisations and agents of chaos.
“Pakistan gives safe haven to agents of chaos, violence and terror,” President Trump had said.
He also added that the United States of America will change their policies and would be tougher than ever on Pakistan.
Coming back to his first tweet of 2018, President Trump said that America has “foolishly” given Pakistan more than 33 billion USDs in aid over the last one and a half decades.
“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 & deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools. They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!”
