Trump Accuses Pakistan Of 'Lies And Deceit,' Threatens To Pull Billions In Aid

Pakistan fired back at President TrumpDonald John TrumpHouse Democrat slams Donald Trump Jr. for "serious case of amnesia" after testimony Skier Lindsey Vonn: I don't want to represent Trump at Olympics Poll: 4 in 10 Republicans think senior Trump advisers had improper dealings with Russia MORE on Monday, saying the US has given it "nothing but invective and mistrust" after Trump lashed out at the country and threatened to withhold aid in an early morning tweet. He added that he planned to return to Washington Monday afternoon, with "much work to be done".

"Trump is disappointed at the United States defeat in Afghanistan and that is the only reason he is flinging accusations at Pakistan", the foreign minister said.

The Afghanistan government last month welcomed US President Donald Trump's new national security strategy and said it affirmed the enduring U.S. - Afghanistan strategic partnership. "We can reasonably argue that Trump administration's decision today has abundantly vindicated India's stand as far as terror is concerned and as far as Pakistan's role in perpetrating terror is concerned", said Minister of State Jitendra Singh.

President Trump's tweets - since before he even became a presidential candidate, if we're honest - have been a bit controversial.

Trump said in laying out his national security strategy on December 18 that "while we desire continue partnership [with Pakistan], we must see decisive action against terrorist groups operating on their territory".

And Secretary of State Rex Tillerson wrote an op-ed article for the New York Times published Thursday stating that "we are prepared to partner with Pakistan to defeat terrorist organizations seeking safe havens, but Pakistan must demonstrate its desire to partner with us".

Since 2002, the United States has given Islamabad more than $33 billion in aid. He also hailed Trump's remark on Pakistan a victory of India's diplomatic efforts. "President Trump has put Pakistan on notice".

According to the Express Tribune, Pakistan's foreign office on Monday summoned the USA envoy to lodge its protest against the tweet.

But Pakistani officials rejected the requests.
