Donald Trump just made one bold move that Obama didn’t have the guts to make.
He’s staying true to his promise to stop America paying to keep the world safe.
Donald Trump fixed one big problem Obama left behind for him. America first.
One of the main reasons that Donald Trump was elected president was because he believe in putting America first and the America’s foreign policy should benefit America.
When Obama ran for president he promised to get America out of the endless Middle Eastern wars that America had got caught up in.
“This war, like all wars, must end. That’s what history advises. It’s what our democracy demands.” Obama said back in 2008, yet after 8 years in office he left in to Trump to accomplish what he could not.
Obama had military involvement in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan.
Trump also campaigned on the promise to end endless wars in the Middle East and he’s actually going to keep his promise.
He just made w historic peace agreement with the Taliban with aim of withdrawing from Afghanistan in 18 months if the Taliban keep up their side of the agreement.
Donald Trump, is willing to come to the table and make a deal with the Taliban only if they agree to play by America’s rules.
Last September Trump cancelled peace talks with the Taliban after they did several attacks on American troops.
“What we’ve done is fundamentally different than what the Obama administration did. Indeed, we accomplished what they tried to do, but could not,” Pompeo said to Fox News. “They never got the Taliban to break with Al Qaeda and they never got a commitment that says, ‘If you execute the following conditions based — That is, if the violence levels come down. That is, if the security posture for the United States of America is reduced, then and only then will we begin to deliver a commensurate footprint inside of your country.'”
“Our mission set is to protect America from the threat of terrorism from Afghanistan, to reduce our cost,” Pompeo went on to say. “I was a CIA director. I was a soldier. I want to see fewer Americans having to make their third, fourth and fifth trip there and fewer Americans coming home injured, maimed or worse yet never having a chance to be with their loved ones again. That’s the president’s mission. That’s what this agreement is aiming to achieve.”
Most Americans can’t even remember why we’re fighting in Afghanistan.
The war started over the fact that they were harboring Osama Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda after 9/10.
Now a deal has been reached where the Taliban has promised to cut ties with Al-Qaeda.
This agreement is a good step towards America ending the longest war in its history.
Trump is doing a fantastic job of balancing America’s need to stop terrorism with protecting American soldiers and bringing them safely home.
