Trump Orders All Troops Home From Afghanistan

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Washington scrambled Thursday to make sense of President Trump’s plans for Afghanistan after he said all U.S. troops “should” be “home by Christmas.”

The suggestion, delivered in a Wednesday evening tweet, came just hours after his own national security adviser said the U.S. would draw down to about 2,500 troops in Afghanistan by early next year.

The Pentagon and U.S. Central Command have yet to weigh in, further stoking the confusion.

Trump’s missive comes as he has focused on troop withdrawals in the final stretch of the presidential election, seeking to show he fulfilled his promise to end so-called forever wars.
