They don’t do a damn thing for us: Trump on Pakistan

Trump administration cancelled $300 million in military aid to Islamabad for not doing enough against terror groups active on its soil.

US President Donald Trump, on Sunday, took on Pakistan and said that despite being aware of Osama bin Laden’s presence in their country, they did not disclose it.

Trump said this in an interview given to Fox News Anchor Chris Wallace which aired on Sunday. “You know, living – think of this – living in Pakistan, beautifully in Pakistan in what I guess they considered a nice mansion, I don’t know, I’ve seen nicer,” he said. “But living in Pakistan right next to the military academy, everybody in Pakistan knew he was there,” Trump said, referring to the house in Abbottabad in which Laden was living. Laden was killed in the same house in 2011 by US

“And we give Pakistan USD 1.3 billion a year. … (Laden) lived in Pakistan, we’re supporting Pakistan, we’re giving them USD 1.3 billion a year — which we don’t give them any more, by the way, I ended it because they don’t do anything for us, they don’t do a damn thing for us,” he added, defending the decision of his administration ending financial aid given to Pakistan.

The US has been dissatisfied with Pakistan allowing its soil to be used for terrorist activities. I has announced a freeze on the aid at the beginning of the year, which is reported to be worth almost $2 billion. Later in the month of September, the Trump administration cancelled $300 million in military aid to Islamabad for not doing enough against terror groups active on its soil.
