US President Donald Trump stressed on Monday that “punishing Qatar” is a positive move, referring to the decisions taken by Arab and Muslim countries to sever diplomatic and economic ties with Doha for supporting terrorism.
Referring to the need to stop financing terrorism, the US president said: “You see what is going on in Qatar”.
Trump also said the fight against terrorist financing “will end with victory”.
Earlier, Trump took to Twitter that he supported the boycotting of Qatar because of its involvement in financing and harboring terrorists.
“During my recent trip to the Middle East I stated that there can no longer be funding of Radical Ideology. Leaders pointed to Qatar - look!” Trump tweeted on June 6.
So good to see the Saudi Arabia visit with the King and 50 countries already paying off. They said they would take a hard line on funding...— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 6, 2017
...extremism, and all reference was pointing to Qatar. Perhaps this will be the beginning of the end to the horror of terrorism!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 6, 2017
