Trump wants full Afghanistan pullout; target date not set yet
WASHINGTON (U.S.) – On Tuesday, U.S. President Donald Trump renewed his desire for a full military withdrawal from Afghanistan. Trump, however, added that a target date had not been set yet, amid speculation he might use his re-election campaign to end the long-drawn war.
“We’re there 19 years and, yeah, I think that’s enough… We can always go back if we want to.”
– Donald Trump
When Trump was questioned if Thanksgiving holiday on Nov. 26 was a target, he said: “No. I have no target. But as soon as (is) reasonable. Over a period of time but as soon as reasonable.”
