Trump Again Slams Pakistan for “Lies, Deceit”

President Donald Trump slammed Pakistan for “lies & deceit” in a New Year’s Day tweet that said Islamabad had played US leaders for “fools”. “No more,” Trump tweeted, AP reported. Meanwhile, Pakistan had no official comment but Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif tweeted that his government was preparing a response that “will let the world know the truth.” The uneasy relationship between the United States and Pakistan has been on a downward spiral since the 2011 US operation that located and killed Osama bin Laden in the military garrison town of Abbottabad, about 118 kilometers (65 miles) from the capital Islamabad. Trump ratcheted up the pressure last year when he announced his Afghan strategy that called out Pakistan for harboring Afghan Taliban insurgents warning it would have to end.
