ISLAMABAD: Commenting on Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s surprise conversation with the United States president-elect Donald Trump, Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-i-Pakistan (PTI) Imran Khan on Thursday said that even the future US president cannot “save him” from the Panamagate scandal.
Imran Khan expressed his views in a tweet and said, it was good news when Trump spoke to the premier but that very chat too could not help him in the high-profile case at the Supreme Court.
Good news is Trump spoke to Nawaz Sharif. Bad news for NS is this won’t save him from Panama scandal – not even if a Trump letter arrived!

PM Nawaz Sharif phoned the billionaire real estate mogul, Donald Trump, to congratulate him on his election victory.
The government led by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) released the candid account of their conversation late on Wednesday, complete with Trump’s trademark language in which he praised the prime minister as a “terrific guy” and offered support for a “fantastic” country (Pakistan).
In a critical reference to a letter by a Qatari prince submitted in the apex court in connection with the Panamagate case, the PTI chairman said PM Sharif could not be saved from the scandal “even if a Trump letter arrived”.
