After PM Imran Khan, US Citizens Also Clap Back At Donald Trump’s Anti-Pakistan Tweets

That Donald Trump is the most emotionally volatile and morally bankrupt leader that the free world has seen since Millard Fillmore is a bygone conclusion. In just over two years, the current US President has successfully offended the country’s staunchest western allies, shown  fondness for dictatorial regimes in North Korea, Saudi Arabia and Russia and to the world’s horror, caged immigrant children. At the domestic front, the US President has given exuberant tax cuts to the rich, removed millions of vulnerable US citizens from the security net and in doing so accelerated poverty in the United States like never before.

However, despite such a dismal performance at home and with regard to his foreign policy, the US President continues to inspire – what a millennial would call – face palm moments. His unfiltered arrogance has led him to call Botswana a shit-hole country,  left the country’s European partners red-faced  after pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal and called Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau “dishonest” and “weak.”

And as if the unnecessary New Year tirade against Pakistan was not enough, Trump returned with a sequel to his Pakistan-has-done-nothing-for-the-US mantra that no one really asked for. Unlike the two-tweet rant in January, Trump’s current episode of verbal diarrhea against Pakistan has gone on for two days now.

For once the Government of Pakistan did not take the unfair bashing silently and Prime Minister Imran Khan himself took to Twitter to set the record straight.

And while Pakistani citizens are cheering their Prime Minister for calling out Trump on his brashness, it seems that Pakistan is not alone in clapping back at the POTUS. The US President’s anti-Pakistan tweets offer a unique thread where US citizens are calling out on their President for double standards when dealing with Pakistan.

The most oft-repeated criticism springs from the United States’ continued close relations with Saudi Arabia.

Then there are those who want to understand the Trump administration’s inability to capture ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Americans are of course, flabbergasted at Trump’s ability – or lack of it – when dealing with sensitive international issues and actors.

Going by the threads involving Donald Trump’s anti-Pakistan tweets, it seems that average American citizens are far more well-versed in history and the dynamics of foreign policy than the current occupant of the Oval Office. It is a shame that one of the most powerful men in the world is clueless when it comes to handling his country’s internal affairs and its relations with the outside world. Of course, the fact that he is also completely devoid of basic human decency does not help much.
