Trump wants to meet Pakistan's leadership even though it 'houses the enemy'

Want good relations with Pakistan but they house the enemy Donald Trump Trump Stuns With Foreign Policy Comments at Cabinet Meeting: Historians are ‘Weeping’

Expressing dissatisfaction over New Delhi's decades-old role in the Afghanistan peace process, US President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he wants the regional countries, including India, Russia and Pakistan to fight the Taliban in the war-torn country. But it's one of those things.

Taking a jibe at Trump's absurd statement against Pakistan, PM Khan said, the Trump administration should carry out a serious assessment pertaining to why the Taliban are stronger in Afghanistan than before instead of making Pakistan a scapegoat for U.S. failures. The US reconciliation efforts with the Taliban have coincided with China's efforts to create a China-Pakistan-Afghanistan triangle to safeguard its interests and extend its Belt and Road Initiative to Afghanistan.

The US president, while addressing a cabinet meeting, defended his demand to build a $5 billion wall, questioning why "we give away money to other countries but not to our own country". "We want to help other nations", Trump told reporters in response to a question during the Cabinet meeting. But I don't mind. "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".

This time, he has cited the small size of a non-existent project - a library - by India in Afghanistan as part of his argument that allies don't pull in their weight in favour of the US. He also noted that the other countries have told him that they are also involved in the peace process in Afghanistan by sending merely 100 or 200 soldiers. We paid Pakistan Billions of Dollars & they never told us he was living there.

In December, the Trump administration had ordered the withdrwal of around 7,000 troops from Afghanistan in the future.

India, while continuing to engage the U.S. over Afghanistan, is exploring initiatives with Russian Federation to safeguard its interests in Afghanistan. "But Russia should be fighting", he said.

During the meeting, Trump also said he had initiated peace talks with the Taliban. So you take a look at other countries--Pakistan is there. The reason Russian Federation was in Afghanistan was because terrorists were going into Russian Federation. Pakistan Army's back door entry in Kabul is a given if the Taliban return to power or in a power-sharing arrangement, they said. They were right to be there. "The problem is it was a tough fight and literally they (Russia) went bankrupt", Trump said.

Besides mega infrastructure projects, India is implementing 116 new "High Impact Community Development Projects" in 31 provinces of Afghanistan, including in the areas of education, health, agriculture, irrigation, drinking water, renewable energy, flood control, micro-hydropower, sports infrastructure, administrative infrastructure.
