The Pakistan Prime Minster lashes out at Trump 'tirade'.


Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan today lashed out at U.S. President Donald Trump following his remarks that Pakistan doesn’t “do anything” for the United States despite billions of dollars in U.S. aid for the South Asian nation. The friction threatens to further worsen already fragile relations between Islamabad and Washington, who have repeatedly clashed about the war in Afghanistan and Pakistan’s alleged support for Islamist militants. Khan said in a series of tweets that “record needs to be put straight on Mr Trump’s tirade against Pakistan” over the weekend.
