The Afghanistan Speech President Trump Should Deliver Tonight

By Adam Dick - August 21, 2017 at 06:00PM

President Donald Trump is expected to deliver a speech tonight in which he announces the deployment of more United States troops to Afghanistan to take part in America’s longest war. Over at The Intercept today Jon Schwarz and Robert Mackey document many of Trump’s pronouncements over the last few years, largely on Twitter, opposing continuation of the war and proposing that the US troops leave Afghanistan. Included in Schwarz and Mackey’s article is a video Trump made in March of 2012 in which Trump emphatically declared “Afghanistan is a total and complete disaster.”

Trump further stated in the video:
Let’s get with it. Get out of Afghanistan. We’ve wasted billions and billions of dollars and, more importantly, thousands and thousands of lives, not to mention all of these young men and young women that come home and they really have problems.
It would be refreshing to see Trump stand up to the generals surrounding him, put down his prepared speech, and make a statement like this one he made five years back. But, don’t count on it happening.
