Pakistan’s defense minister, Khurram Dastgir-Khan, on Monday slammed a tweet from President Donald Trump about Pakistan, noting actions that Pakistan has taken to help the U.S. in the fight against terrorists.
The defense minister was responding to a tweet Trump posted earlier Monday, his first of 2018. “They have given us nothing but lies and deceit,” the president said in the tweet.

Trump’s administration is considering whether to withhold $255 million in aid in response to Pakistan rejecting requests for access to a member of a Taliban-linked network that Pakistani forces had captured, The New York Times reported Friday.
