During Donald Trump's speech on Monday, where he presented the new Afghanistan strategy, the US leader criticized Pakistan by calling it a "haven" for terrorists.
"Pakistan has also sheltered the same organizations that try every single day to kill our people. We have been paying Pakistan billions and billions of dollars at the same time they are housing the very terrorists that we are fighting. But that will have to change, and that will change immediately. No partnership can survive a country's harboring of militants and terrorists who target US service members and officials," Trump said.
The US president threatened to change America's stance on Pakistan if it's "continuing to harbor criminals and terrorists."
Pakistan hit back at Donald Trump's claim responding that the country is being singled out as a "scapegoat" for US failures.
