Pakistan doesn't do 'a damn thing' for US Donald Trump

Osama bin Laden lived in Pakistan and the USA was supporting Pakistan, the president said in an interview that aired on Fox News Sunday. Wouldn't it have been nice?

Trump also defended his administration's decision to pull hundreds of millions of dollars in military aid to Islamabad in an interview to Fox News.

The US suspended almost $2 billion in military aid to Pakistan early this year for not taking decision action against terrorists operating from its soil.

The Aricebo message: the first attempt to contact aliens 44 years ago
The 1974 Arecibo Message is a three-minute long missive made up of exactly 1,679 binary digits. The Aricebo message was to demonstrate the power of the Aricebo telescope and its capabilities.

He was referring to the big house bin Laden had lived in in Abbottabad where he was killed in a raid by US SEALs in 2011. "I ended it because they don't do anything for us, they don't do a damn thing for us", Trump was quoted as saying.

Trump also plans to visit the U.S. troops stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan for the first time. "I am a fan of President Obama and President George W. Bush, both of whom I worked for". He commented, "There are things that are being planned. We don't want to talk about it because of - obviously because of security reasons and everything else". In September, the Trump administration cancelled $300 million in military aid to Islamabad for not doing enough against terror groups active on its soil.

This may be the bluntest denunciation of Pakistan by a sitting US President but when you consider the style of Donald Trump, you can very well expect such an onslaught. They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. "No more!", Trump tweeted on January 1.
