I reckon The Donald will tell the Pakis to get stuffed

The Pakis are upset with Donald Trump’s New Year’s tweet and have summoned the US Ambassador for a telling off:

The Pakistan government has summoned the United States ambassador in Islamabad to express its serious concerns over a tweet by US President Donald Trump accusing Pakistan of lies and deceit and harbouring terrorists, official sources say.

“The US ambassador (David Hale) was summoned last night. We expressed our serious concerns over what President (Donald) Trump said in the tweet to the ambassador,” a source from Pakistan’s foreign ministry, who asked not to be named, said.

An official from the US embassy, who also requested not to be named, confirmed the meeting between Hale and the Pakistani authorities but did not provide any details.

“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!” Trump had written in what was his first tweet of 2018.

I reckon the ambassador will shrug his shoulders, say “Meh” and then tell President Trump that there should be no more aid for Pakistan in the next budget round. The Pakis did vote against the US in the UN after all.

They also hid Osama bin laden for years…in great comfort.

So, they get stroppy, no more money. Problem solved…and no one will care in the US, except to say ‘Attaboy Donny’.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
