Having good discussions with both the Afghan government and Taliban - Trump

"VAN" (International Desk) :: U.S. President Donald Trump has recently said that the United States is having good discussions with both the Afghan government and Taliban.

Speaking to reporters in New Jersey on Sunday, Trump said “We’re looking at Afghanistan. We’re talking to Afghanistan, both the government and also talking to the Taliban, having very good discussions. We’ll see what happens … We’ll decide whether or not we’ll be staying longer or not.”

This comes as President Trump met with the senior U.S. government and security officials at his golf course in Bedminster New Jersey last week.

President Trump reviewed the U.S. and Taliban peace plan during the meeting.

Meanwhile, Trump told reporters that the United States does not want Afghanistan to turn to a laboratory for the terrorists.

He said “Look we’re there for one reason, we don’t want that to be a laboratory … It can’t be a laboratory for terror. And we’ve stopped that we have a very, very good view.”

He also added “We’re like a police force and that’s about it, frankly. I think it’s very important that we continue intelligence there in all cases because it is somewhat of a nest.”

President Trump said “If you look at what happened with the World Trade, essentially came out of Afghanistan, most of the people, I think they may not have come from Afghanistan originally but that’s where they were taught.”
