Following President Trump’s declaration that the United States would end aid to Pakistan, Senator Rand Paul, R-Ky., says he will introduce a bill in the Senate to cut off Pakistan aid and shift those funds toward legislation to improve American infrastructure in 2018.
“The United States should not give one penny to countries who burn our flag and chant ‘death to America,’” Sen. Paul said in a video posted to Twitter. “Countries like Pakistan, that stonewall access to key information in fighting terrorism, don’t deserve our money. I say we should stop now.”
Noting that the U.S. has sent over $33 billion to Pakistan since 2002 while the regime has aided and abetted terrorists, Paul said he will introduce a bill to cut off the aid.
