Pakistan Foreign Minister meets Prime Minister Abbasi after Trump's barb

In return, Pakistan has just hit back in at least five separate tweets. He further accused Islamabad of harbouring the terrorists that the USA was hunting in neighbouring Afghanistan.

"[Pakistan] as anti-terror ally has given free to USA: land & air communication, military bases & intel cooperation that decimated Al-Qaeda over last 16yrs, but they have given us nothing but invective & mistrust", Pakistan's defense minister, Khurram Dastgir-Khan, said on Twitter.

In August, Trump warned that Pakistan had "much to lose" if it failed to cooperate with the U.S.in Afghanistan. "They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help".

When a team of crack U.S. soldiers neutralised Laden in his hideout in the early hours of May 2, 2011, it came to light that he had been living in Pakistan for quite some time, and about just a kilometre away from Pakistan Military Academy, where the best of Pakistan's armed forces are trained.

Trump tweeted: "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".

It was not immediately clear why Trump opted to tweet on Pakistan.

In July, Defence Secretary James Mattis previously stalled a $50 million aid package to the country in July by withholding a certification that Pakistan had done enough to fight the Haqqani Network.

However, the New York Times reported Friday that Pakistan had refused to allow us access to a militant captured in October during the rescue operation for American hostage Caitlan Coleman and her family.

"The Pakistani government's cooperation is a sign that it is honoring America's wishes for it to do more to provide security in the region", he said in a statement. He voiced his support for the protesters there, saying it is "TIME FOR CHANGE".

Protests have picked up throughout Iran, where citizens are furious over the nation's economic situation.

.

"Iran is failing at every level despite the bad deal made with them by the Obama Administration". They are hungry for food & for freedom. Trump's son Donald Trump Jr tweeted yesterday.

Average Iranians have been frustrated over an economic boost from the sanctions lift not being passed down to them.

In an early-morning post, he accused Islamabad of harboring terrorists.

Pakistan, a close ally of the United States for 70 long years, vowed to respond soon and tell the world "the truth".
