Trump had said about Bin Laden: “He lived in Pakistan. We have supported Pakistan, we gave them 1.3 billion dollars in a year, what we give you, by the way. I stopped because they do nothing for us.” On Monday, Trump did the same and wrote on Twitter that the United States had stopped funding for Pakistan, “because they take our money and nothing for us to do. Bin Laden is a Prime example, Afghanistan another”.
Khan said on trump’s attacks, that this “needs to be informed about historical facts”. “Pakistan has suffered enough, to fight the war to the United States,” he wrote. “Now we will do what is for our people, and our interests best.” In another Tweet, Khan said, the US should analyze why the Taliban are today in spite of all the financial and military efforts in Afghanistan, stronger than before.
