Nikki Haley confirmed the Trump Administration’s plan to withhold over $200 million from Pakistan’s foreign aid package. What with the country’s nasty habit of speaking out of both sides of its flapping ass. Taking US money in one hand, harboring terrorism with the other. About time we squashed it.
Let’s go to Madam Haley for more:
Nikki Haley on President Trump's Pakistan comments: "They work with us at times, and they also harbor the terrorist that attack our troops in Afghanistan. That game is not acceptable to this administration." https://t.co/RaGT9E3dRt pic.twitter.com/liO2D7TtDK

She’s right. Why are we paying a country which actively betrays us? Seems wrong. I can think of over 200 million better ways to spend 200 million dollars. Free dental floss for all of America’s children. A pet rock museum. School lunches for wayward cats.

We have every right to withhold funds from countries, period. No one deserves American dollars simply because we have it and they don’t. America has just as much right to say “We’re not going to give you any more of our hard-earned tax dollars until you stop hiding people who’ve attacked some of those same taxpayers, screw you.” This isn’t rocket science. Haley and the Trump Administration’s position on Pakistan is simpler than spreading peanut butter on a wall. A plan so simple, I’d hope Trump carries it to other countries in need of a spanking.
If Pakistan wants American dolla dolla bills to flow back into it (an idea which I still oppose, I’d rather no foreign aid to anyone, let each country take care of itself), it must first stop harboring terrorists. Seems like a fair exchange, no?
