Trump’s Newest Inexplicable Internet Beef Is With The Guy That Shot Bin Laden

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.

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.
