President Trump just declared that he wants to defend our holdings in Afghanistan. He said the hasty withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan in order to “create a vacuum” and to say that America “is not nation-building again; we are killing terrorists.”
Praise the President. This is such a huge departure. We are not going to be into nation building anymore.
Trump said that he shares the nation’s “frustration” with the war in Afghanistan and admitted to the crowd that his “original instinct was to pull out.”
This speech was in front of a large military audience. “From now on, victory will have a clear definition: attacking our enemies, obliterating ISIS, crushing al-Qaida, preventing the Taliban from taking over the country, and stopping mass terror attacks against Americans before they emerge.”
Trump then went after Pakistan and made it very clear that he is not happy with them housing terrorists.
