“Could someone please explain to them that we have been there for 19 years,” Trump wrote. “… the Taliban is mixed about even wanting us to get out. They make a fortune $$$ by having us stay, and except at the beginning, we never really fought to win,” Trump wrote in response to a Wall Street Journal editorial warning him to not be “impulsive” while making decisions on Afghanistan.
Trump further added “We are more of a police force than the mighty military that we are, especially now as rebuilt. No, I am not acting impulsively!”
This comes as the U.S. and Taliban signed a peace deal in Qatar late in February this year with an aim to pave the way for the withdrawal of foreign forces from Afghanistan.
