“We had a good conversation. We’ve agreed there is no violence. We don’t want violence. But we’ll see what happens. They are dealing with Afghanistan. We had a very good talk with the leader of the Taliban,” Trump said on the South Lawn of the White House.
“We are committed to reducing the violence but will not hesitate to defend our forces, Coalition forces, or our Afghan partners. Pointless attacks on checkpoints and needless violence should cease completely."
