Trump's remark on aid to Pakistan vindicates India's stand: Government

"No more!" Trump said in his first tweet of the year.

"They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help".

The US President again singled out Pakistan for criticism when he announced his national security strategy earlier this month.

And according to The Hill, Khurram Dastgir Khan, the Minister of Defense for Pakistan, defended his country, explaining the nation of almost 210 million mostly Muslim people has actually given America a great deal, and in return America has given them "nothing but invective & mistrust".

"They overlook cross-border safe havens of terrorists who murder Pakistanis", he added.

When a team of crack United States soldiers neutralised Laden in his hideout in the early hours of May 2, 2011, it came to light that he had been living in Pakistan for quite some time, and about just a kilometre away from Pakistan Military Academy, where the best of Pakistan's armed forces are trained.

Earlier in the day, US President Donald Trump, in his first tweet of the New Year, blasted the Pakistan leadership by saying that they have given America "nothing but lies and deceit" despite having received more than United States dollars 33 billion in last 15 years. "I couldn't agree more", tweeted Senator Rand Paul from Kentucky.

In October, Pakistan seemingly heard the call - launching a raid on the Taliban-tied Haqqani network.

However, the New York Times reported Friday that Pakistan had refused to allow USA access to a militant captured in October during the rescue operation for American hostage Caitlan Coleman and her family.

Trump, who's now staying at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, also doubled down on his support of protesters in Iran, which entered its fifth day.

Vice President Mike Pence reinforced that message in a visit to Afghanistan just before Christmas, telling cheering American troops that "President Trump has put Pakistan on notice".

Protests have picked up throughout Iran, where citizens are furious over the nation's economic situation.

. The great Iranian people have been repressed for many years. Along with human rights, the wealth of Iran is being looted. Trump's son Donald Trump Jr tweeted yesterday.

He's backed those demonstrating against the government in multiple tweets since Saturday.
