President Trump made a surprise Thanksgiving visit to Afghanistan to meet both the country’s president and with US troops saying that peace talks have resumed with the Taliban amid a push for a cease-fire and to reduce US deployment in the region.
The President landed at Bagram Airfield around 8:30p local time Thursday and greeted US soldiers over a turkey dinner before meeting with Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani at the airfield’s Air Force HQ’s.
President Trump reiterated that they are working for a peace deal in Afghanistan. “Rest assured that my administration will always be committed to annihilating terrorists wherever they appear,” he told troops there, adding that he looked forward to the day “when we can bring each and every one of you home and safe to your family, and that day is coming and coming very soon.”
Making and Keeping America Great!
