Trump Responds After Pakistan RELEASES Anti-American Terrorist
Sufi Mohammad is known for helping the Taliban fight against American troops.
His release papers are signed and soon Mohammad will be free to retaliate against the U.S.
Mohammad was first imprisoned in 2009 for charges of murder and treason. Not only did he aid the Taliban in fighting against American troops, but he is known as the father-in-law of Mullah Fazlullah, the leader of the Taliban offshoot in Pakistan.
Sufi Mohammad even refused to acknowledge the courts who tried him for his crimes because he didn’t officially recognize the court’s power. Therefore, he offered no defense of his actions.
For decades Mohammad tried to implement his own version of Sharia law. As if that archaic nonsense could be refined.
One would think this man should rot in a jail cell until his last breath. Yet, lawyers claim his old age is reason enough to set him free. Somehow, Pakistan assumed unleashing another terrorist will give them the upper hand in foreign relations.Perhaps they believe Obama to still be president?
And thus President Trump’s rude awakening.
As Fox News reports:
The court’s decision could further inflame U.S.-Pakistani tensions due to President Trump’s decision to withdraw aid to Pakistan over allegations of harboring Islamic militants.
The Trump administration said Pakistani authorities are knowingly ignoring militants in their country, while the U.S. had “foolishly” given Pakistan more than $33 billion in aid over the last 15 years.
The president addressed the issue on Twitter.
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!

“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!”
Pakistan is not an American ally.
Perhaps the reason Obama never held Pakistan accountable comes from his love of the country. Obama spent time there during his college years, and seems to hold fond memories of his time there.
Also, Obama’s mother held a high-end finance job in Pakistan.
Time and again, Obama financed Pakistan with American taxpayer dollars. And on his last day in office, Obama tried to render aid to Pakistan with a $221 million dollar payment. To hell with optics on that one, as Obama’s ruse on the American people had ended.
What did America get in return for 8 years of uninterrupted cashflow to Pakistan? Definitely not any assurances of our safety. In fact, we got quite the contrary.
After $33 billion, Pakistan shows its gratitude by freeing another terrorist. Not one President has put a stop to this madness until now.
Pakistan calls Trump’s move “blackmail”
Pakistan responded to Trump’s cut in funding by calling it blackmail. Yet, Trump is just living up to the promises of the many leaders before him. Past presidents might have shied away from taking a hard stance, but Trump’s not afraid. He will hold other countries accountable for their behavior. And if they want to call that blackmail, so be it. In the end, it doesn’t matter what they call it, because they won’t have anymore fat checks to cash.
As Kevin Jackson put it:
If taking the money of hardworking taxpaying American’s money away from countries who don’t support our interest is “blackmail”, then America is about to blackmail the world.
We enter the Era of Redemption for Americans. No longer will we be pushed around. And we certainly won’t pay to have it done.
