Trump Mulls Leaving Intelligence in Afghanistan

WASHINGTON – The US President Donald Trump has said that he will leave intelligence in Afghanistan after the withdrawal of the US forces from the country.
During an exclusive interview with CBS News, President Trump said, “We’ve been there for 19 years, almost, we are fighting very well. We’re fighting harder than ever before… I think they’re tired, and I think everybody’s tired.”
“Now, that doesn’t mean we’re not going to be watching with intelligence. We’re going to be watching, and watching closely,” he said.
Trump also added, “And, I’ll leave intelligence there. Real intelligence, and if see nests forming, I’ll do something about it.”
President Trump had earlier vowed that he would bring American troops home if a peace deal was reached with the Taliban to end the war in Afghanistan.
Speaking to reporters in Oval Office late on Thursday, President Trump said talks are underway regarding an agreement for peace in Afghanistan.
US President Donald Trump further added that ‘serious talks’ have started regarding a political settlement in Afghanistan after almost 18 years, emphasizing that he would bring American people home if that happens.
