“No more!”: Trump Threatens Aid to Pakistan in First Tweet of 2018

The president’s first tweet of the new year calls out the Islamic Republic of Pakistan:

This didn’t come out of nowhere; the New York Times reported last week that the administration was debating withholding aid to Pakistan:

Now, the Trump administration is strongly considering whether to withhold $255 million in aid that it had delayed sending to Islamabad, according to American officials, as a show of dissatisfaction with Pakistan’s broader intransigence toward confronting the terrorist networks that operate there.

The administration’s internal debate over whether to deny Pakistan the money is a test of whether President Trump will deliver on his threat to punish Islamabad for failing to cooperate on counterterrorism operations. Relations between the United States and Pakistan, long vital for both, have chilled steadily since the president declared over the summer that Pakistan “gives safe haven to agents of chaos, violence and terror.”

The United States, which has provided Pakistan more than $33 billion in aid since 2002, said in August that it was withholding the $255 million until Pakistan did more to crack down on internal terrorist groups. Senior administration officials met this month to decide what to do about the money, and American officials said a final decision could be made in the coming weeks.

Trump’s tweet suggests that the decision to get tougher with Islamabad has been made. This may only be the beginning; as the Times article noted, in February the Hudson Institute issued a report urging the US to stop viewing Pakistan as an ally — and the report’s coauthor, Lisa Curtis, now sits on the National Security Council.

Anti-Regime Protests Spread Across Iran

From the BBC:

Anti-government demonstrations that began in Iran on Thursday have now spread to several major cities.

Large numbers reportedly turned out in Rasht, in the north, and Kermanshah, in the west, with smaller protests in Isfahan, Hamadan and elsewhere.

The protests began against rising prices but have spiralled into a general outcry against clerical rule and government policies…

On Friday, despite warnings from authorities, the demonstrations spread further to some of the biggest cities in the country.

They represent the most serious and widespread expression of public discontent in Iran since mass protests in 2009 that followed a disputed election, correspondents say.

Video on social media shows just how vehement the protests have gotten, with open calls to end clerical rule and denunciations of the regime’s regional allies like Hamas and Hezbollah:

The State Department has issued a statement of support for the protestors, a nice departure from the Obama administration’s conspicuously muted response to the 2009 protests:

Speaker Ryan has also voiced his support:

Stay tuned.
