President Trump on Afghanistan Strategy (C-SPAN)
Excerpts from President Trump’s remark on Afghanistan:

FIRST: Our nation must seek an honorable and enduring outcome worthy of the tremendous sacrifices that have been made…
SECOND: The consequences of a rapid exit are both predictable and unacceptable… A hasty withdrawal would create a vacuum that terrorists – including ISIS and Al Qaeda – would instantly fill, just as happened before September Eleventh…
THIRD AND FINALLY, I concluded that the security threats we face in Afghanistan and the broader region are immense.”
