Trump withholding $255M in aid to Pakistan, as he accuses country of giving ‘safe haven’ to terrorists

The Trump administration has decided to withhold millions in military aid to Pakistan as the president accuses the Muslim-majority nation of harboring terrorists and telling “lies” to the United States.

“The United States does not plan to spend the $255 million in [Fiscal Year] 2016 Foreign Military Financing for Pakistan at this time,” a National Security Council official told Fox News on Monday.

The official added, “The president has made clear that the United States expects Pakistan to take decisive action against terrorists and militants on its soil, and that Pakistan’s actions in support of the South Asia Strategy will ultimately determine the trajectory of our relationship, including future security assistance.”

    I would bet that the current crop of Democrats would have give aid to Japan in 1941 if they PROMISED not to attack us again. (They would have given money to Germany under the table so as not to offend their base) Our aid should be based on not just need, as everybody needs more money, but on how it’s used. Why give money that costs the lives of Americans? Iran has been kidnapping and killing Americans since the 70’s, either directly or through “hired guns”. The Pakis are better, if only marginally so. They are also using US Aid to aid our enemies. It’s our money, how we spend it is up to us.

    The former administration never found a militant Muslim cause it didn’t embrace. With pro Iranian Muslim, Valerie Jarrett, as one of his closest advisers, Barrak Obama who’s political leanings have historically been anti American it was predictable. It also is no surprise that the more militant elements of the world felt like the US was gonna suck up to them forever.
    Lots of the worlds governments have a wake up call coming & it’s long overdue.

    What we need to do with all the billions in Foreign Aid money that is withheld for a variety of reasons, is to park it in a Federal Budget Line item called “Infrastructure” so we can begin to rebuild the U.S. We could begin with the $225 million we’re withholding from Pakistan because of their duplicitous track record in assisting the U.S. with terrorists fleeing from Afghanistan. Secondly, we could determine how many American dollars are sent back to Mexico by those ILLEGAL aliens who sneaked into the U.S. and are now working in our country and sending a portion of their earnings back to Mexico annually. We should withhold that money from any Foreign Aid we send to Mexico and call it a down payment on the WALL we’re forced to build to protect our southern borders from southern invaders. It would also fulfill the Trumpster’s promise of having Mexico pay for the WALL. All such monies withheld from other non-complying countries receiving U.S. taxpayer dollars should be held in that ‘Infrastructure Account’ until we decide which part of America is most in need of rebuilding.

    You have my vote. Don’t give our money to countries that wont help with the fight against radical Muslim terrorists.
