“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,” Mr. Trump said in a strongly worded tweet.
“They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!” Mr. Trump said in his first tweet of the year.This is the strongest warning that has come from the U.S. President.
In his new South Asia Policy unveiled in August, Mr. Trump had called for tougher measure against Pakistan if it did not cooperate with the U.S. in its fight against terrorism.

On Twitter Monday, Trump attacked Pakistan, saying: “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.

Meanwhile, Pakistani Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has called for special meeting of the Cabinet on January 2 to discuss Mr. Trump’s statement. Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Khwaja M. Asif said that the country will officially respond to Mr. Trump’s allegations shortly.
“We will respond to President Trump’s tweet shortly inshallah…” Mr. Asif tweeted. “Will let the world know the truth..difference between facts & fiction..”
The U.S. has long accused Istanbul of allowing militants to operate relatively freely in Pakistan’s border regions to carry out operations in neighboring Afghanistan. In August, the United States said it would hold up $255 million in military assistance for Pakistan until it cracks down on extremists threatening Afghanistan.
On Iran, Trump seemed to be responding to widespread anti-government protests there. He tweeted Monday that Iran is “failing at every level” and voiced support for the protesters, saying it is “TIME FOR CHANGE.”
While some Iranians have shared Trump’s tweets, many there distrust him as he’s refused to re-certify the nuclear deal and because his travel bans have blocked Iranians from getting U.S. visas.
He also cited several accomplishments, including the tax overhaul, opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling, and repealing the individual mandate from the national health care law.
Asked for his reaction to North Korea leader Kim Jon Un’s remarks about having a nuclear button on his desk, Trump responded by saying, “We’ll see.”
Guests gathered in the decorated ballroom included senior White House advisers Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, Trump’s sons Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr. and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.
Since taking office, President Trump has made frequent visits to his for-profit properties. He has refused to divest from his real estate and hotel empire, drawing criticism from ethics experts.
Trump cited his success in placing a justice on the Supreme Court, his efforts to cut regulations and his big win on overhauling taxes, which he falsely described as the “largest tax cut in the history of our country.”
Trump offered the video with a New Year’s Eve message: “What a year it’s been, and we’re just getting started. Together, we are MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! Happy New Year!!”
He later offered another Twitter message, loaded with his signature bombast: “As our Country rapidly grows stronger and smarter, I want to wish all of my friends, supporters, enemies, haters, and even the very dishonest Fake News Media, a Happy and Healthy New Year. 2018 will be a great year for America!”(With Agency Inputs ).
