Kabul, January 16: Afghanistan residents have awarded Donald Trump a bravery medal for rebuking Pakistan over its failure in curbing terrorist havens. 

As per local media reports, the medal has been forged using funds collected by Afghans from the Logar province worth 45,000 Afghanis ($645) and consists of 15 grams of gold.

US Ambassador in Kabul John R Bass has promised that he will soon hand over the medal to the US President.

Syed Farhad Akbari, a community leader in the province, said that more than 300 people at an informal “jirga,” or council, of concerned citizens agreed to award the medal to the US president.

He said the handwritten message on the award states “This Bravery Medal is from the Afghan people to Donald Trump, president of the United States of America.”

This comes as the US President Donald Trump nearly two weeks ago criticized Pakistan in strong words for harboring the terrorist groups despite receiving billions in aid to support the counter-terrorism efforts in Afghanistan.

“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. They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!” Trump said in a Twitter post.
