Abstract

The present paper aims to analyze the Tweets of US president Donald Trump meant for Islamabad. PaK-US relations had been volatile characterized by the absolute absence of stability. Most significantly mistrust and animosity dominated diplomatic ties of Islamabad and Washington. Recently, with occupancy of the presidency by Donald Trump as a 45th president on 20th January 2017 by succeeding US president Barack Obama, Mr. Trump set on pouring messages through his frequent tweets; which were interpreted in a variant way by editorials of different newspapers. Accordingly, in order of plumb undercurrent bias-ness and predilection of the newspapers, two international i.e., the Washington Post and the New York Times and three national newspapers e.g., the Daily Dawn, the Roznama Duniya and the Sindh Express were purposively sampled. However, the total size of the chosen editorials were thirty-seven predicating a brief time series ranging from 2017 to 2018, of which there were three English and two Urdu newspapers. Method of Content Analysis was employed to examine the data. As a result, the international newspaper e.g., the Washington Post and the Daily Times were composed in treatment of both countries the States and Pakistan so did the Daily Dawn. On the contrary, the regional newspapers of Pakistan, such as the Roznama Duniya and the Sindh Express adopted a partial attitude in dealing with PaK-US affairs demonstrated by xenophobia towards Pakistan versus the States.
