Trump tweet sparks pakistang Sec. Council meetingPresident Tump's New Year's Day tweet blasting Pakistan prompted the country's National Security Council to hold an emergency meeting on Tuesday, according to CNN.

The meeting was chaired by Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and attended by Pakistan's Foreign, Interior, and Defense ministers, as well as the chiefs of staff of the Pakistan airforce, army, and navy.

The summit comes as demonstrators took to the streets of Karachi to protest Trump and the U.S.  In Trump's first tweet of the new year, he said Pakistan has given the U.S. “nothing but lies & deceit.”

The U.S. ambassador to Pakistan, David Hale, was called to meet with senior officials at the foreign ministry after Trump's tweet.

The White House announced on Monday the U.S. would withhold $225 million in aid to Pakistan over frustration with the country's handling of terror networks.
