Remember this tweet?
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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 1, 2018
Well Nikki Haley just spoke in a press conference at the UN and explained why the US is now withholding $255 million from Pakistan.
UN Amb. Nikki Haley says U.S. withholding $255 million in assistance to Pakistan. “Pakistan has played a double game for years…that game is not acceptable to this administration.” https://t.co/CFdzczE0fE pic.twitter.com/tPYkAdP92R

In short she says Pakistan is playing a ‘double game’ with the US, at times supporting us while also harboring the terrorists who want to kill us. She says this ‘double game’ is not acceptable to the Trump administration.
Haley also pointed out that President Trump is willing to go to ‘great lengths’ to stop all funding to the Pakistanis if this double game continues.
This is fantastic in my opinion. Why just send them money like Obama and let them do whatever they want to do that is against US interests? If they want our money, they need to stop harboring terrorists.
Trump is on the money here.
