ISLAMABAD: Imran Khan reacted angrily on Monday to comments made US President Donald Trump. Trump said in an interview that Pakistan had not done a damn thing for the US, it even had helped Osama Bin Laden for living in Abbotabad.
Trump made this remarks in an interview given to FOX News on Sunday. President was trying to defend his administration's to stop the monetary aid to Pakistan.
Trump remarked, “I ended it because they don’t do anything for us, they don’t do a damn thing for us,”
Of course we should have captured Osama Bin Laden long before we did. I pointed him out in my book just BEFORE the attack on the World Trade Center. President Clinton famously missed his shot. We paid Pakistan Billions of Dollars & they never told us he was living there. Fools!..
Trump doesn’t just stop on the interview, he further “cursed” Pakistan on Twitter. He Tweeted,
“We no longer pay Pakistan the $Billions because they would take our money and do nothing for us, Bin Laden being a prime example, Afghanistan being another. They were just one of many countries that take from the United States without giving anything in return. That’s ENDING!”
Now, the game real word war started when Pakistan’s newly elected Prime Minister Imran Khan replied to Trump that Pakistan and it’s people has suffered enough in fighting terrorism on behalf of the United States.
Imran Khan wrote a series on Twitter. He said. “Record needs to be put straight on Mr Trump's tirade against Pakistan:
1. No Pakistani was involved in 9/11 but Pak decided to participate in US War on Terror.
2. Pakistan suffered 75,000 casualties in this war & over $123 bn was lost to the economy. US "aid" was a minuscule $20 bn.
3. Our tribal areas were devastated & millions of ppl uprooted from their homes. The war drastically impacted the lives of ordinary Pakistanis.
4. Pak continues to provide free lines of ground & air communications(GLOCs/ALOCs). Can Mr Trump name another ally that gave such sacrifices?
Imran Khan pointed out that Trump/US is using Pakistan as an excuse for their failures, saying that, “Instead of making Pakistan a scapegoat for their failures, the US should do a serious assessment of why, despite 140000 NATO troops plus 250,000 Afghan troops & reportedly $1 trillion spent on war in Afghanistan, the Taliban today are stronger than before.”
