MILITARY/PAKISTAN/TERRORISM/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Pakistan reacted angrily on Monday [11-19-18] to criticism by President Trump that the country had not done enough in return for years of United States military aid and that the government had harbored Osama bin Laden, the leader of Al Qaeda. In an interview with ‘Fox News Sunday’ this weekend, Mr. Trump defended his decision early this year to withdraw hundreds of millions of dollars in security aid to Pakistan…Mr. Trump also alleged that the Pakistani government had known Bin Laden was living in the country before he was killed in an American military raid in 2011. The president doubled down on his criticism on Twitter on Monday, citing Bin Laden and the Taliban resurgence in neighboring Afghanistan as examples of how Pakistan would ‘take our money and do nothing for us.’”
