Known for his brash statements and fiery statements, America’s Republican Presidential front-runner Donald Trump labelled a nuclear-armed Pakistan as ‘a very, very vital problem.’
“Pakistan is a very, very vital problem and really vital country for us because they have a thing called nuclear weapons. They have to get a hold of their situation,” said the American billionaire businessman and politician. He also spoke about Sunday’s bomb blast in Lahore that resulted in more than seventy people getting killed and hundreds injured. Among them, women and children were also victims of the blast.
“When I see that and when I see it put in a park because it was mostly Christians, although many others were killed other than Christians, I think it’s just absolutely a horrible story,” he said about the Lahore blast.
In response to a question, Donald Trump said that he would solve the issue better than any of his counterparts vying for the coveted President’s seat. “I’m talking about radical Islamic terrorism. I will solve it far better than anybody else running,” he said.
When news of the tragic blast at Lahore took place, Trump had tweeted about it and wrote: “I alone can solve.”
Another radical Islamic attack, this time in Pakistan, targeting Christian women & children. At least 67 dead,400 injured. I alone can solve

This is also not the first time that Donald Trump has voiced his fears regarding Pakistan’s nuclear weapons and their security. Last month, he had said:-
“I think you have to stay in Afghanistan for a while, because of the fact that you are right next to Pakistan, which has nuclear weapons and we have to protect that. Nuclear weapons change the game.”
