Trump had called for a halt to Pakistan’s aid in a tweet posted on Monday citing inaction against terrorism.

The US president regretted US approving aid packages to Pakistan when all Pakistan did for the last 15 years was to fool the leaders.

Both civil and military leadership of Pakistan have rejected States calls in the recent past demanding Pakistan to do more against extremists and banned outfits.

Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General (DG) Major General Asif Ghafoor Bajwa had said in a media briefing weeks before Trump’s tirade that Pakistan does not need aid but trust of United States.
