State Dept. Spox: Trump Wants Pakistan to Take More Action Against Militants and Terrorists

‘We’ve made that extremely clear’

EXCERPT:

NAUERT: "Again, Bill, this is nothing knew that the U.S. government has announced. We announced the $255 million a few months ago; whether or not we decide to withhold any other money is up to the president to decide and the president will announce that. But what the president has asked Pakistan to do repeatedly is take more action against militants and terrorists in Pakistan. We have had a complicated relationship with Pakistan. You may recall that they were of assistance to the U.S. government when it came to releasing the Coleman family, an American citizens from -- from the United States earlier, later last -- late last year. But yet, it was a country that also harbored Osama bin Laden. So it's been a complicated relationship with Pakistan."
