Shocked Pakistan Just Did Something Insane Over Losing U.S Funding!

President Trump and his administration announced that will not be sending military aid totaling $255 million to Pakistan due to the country’s catastrophic handling of terror groups, on Friday. But Pakistan is in shock and didn’t expect this from the U.S and because of that, they’re demanding to see U.S. ambassador.

From LATimes:

Pakistan lashed out Monday after President Trump accused its leaders of “lies & deceit” and suggested the United States would withdraw financial assistance to the nuclear-armed nation it once saw as a key ally against terrorism.

U.S. Ambassador David Hale was summoned to the Foreign Ministry to discuss the president’s statement, U.S. Embassy spokesman Richard Snelsire said. Pakistan lodged a strongly worded protest and asked for clarification about Trump’s comments, according to two foreign office officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.

Pakistan’s prime minister, Shahid Abbasi, called a Cabinet meeting for Tuesday and a meeting of the National Security Committee on Wednesday to discuss Trump’s New Year’s Day tweet.

It was the president’s latest broadside against Pakistan after a speech in August in which he demanded its leaders crack down on the safe havens enjoyed by Taliban militants fighting U.S.-backed forces in neighboring Afghanistan.

“The United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than $33 billion in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies & deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools,” Trump wrote.

Here is the feedback from Pac Minister Defence:

Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif told Pakistan’s Geo TV: “We have already told the US that we will not do more, so Trump’s ‘no more’ does not hold any importance,

“Pakistan is ready to publicly provide every detail of the US aid that it has received.”‏
