"The United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollars in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies & deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools. They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!" Trump wrote on Twitter.
The Washington-Islamabad relations have deteriorated since Donald Trump took office at the beginning of 2017.
In August 2017, Trump said that Pakistan would have "much to lose," if it did not take measures to fight against terrorists, who were hiding on the country's territory. He also noted that "Pakistan often gives safe haven to agents of chaos, violence, and terror."
