At the United Nations in New York, U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley said Tuesday that President Trump will withhold $255 million in assistance to Pakistan. The announcement came a day after President Trump took a swipe at Pakistan on Twitter, sparking widespread anti-U.S. protests across Pakistan. This is Pakistani politician Imran Khan, speaking in Islamabad.

Imran Khan: “Trump has no understanding of the war in Afghanistan and the destruction it has caused in Pakistan. It seems like he has no background knowledge about it at all. … Pakistan has made sacrifices in the American war. It has suffered losses in the process. Our tribal areas have been devastated. And on top of all this, we are being humiliated. An American president who lacks sense and who does not understand much and who is following the agenda of our enemies, he is insulting us in the end.”
