US President Donald Trump on Monday ruled out quick talks with the Taliban, following a wave of bloody large-scale attacks in the Afghan capital Kabul. "I don't think we are prepared to talk right now," Trump said, throwing into question Washington's strategy of pushing the group toward the negotiating table.
"We don't want to talk with the Taliban," Trump said. "They are killing people left and right, innocent people."
The United States aims to press the Taliban on the battlefield to convince them that they will have to negotiate peace, a senior US diplomat said on Tuesday, a day after President Donald Trump rejected talks following a series of attacks.
President says "no we won't talk", his officials say "yes we still want to talk".
No wonder the US loses it's wars.... the wheels have come off the Clown Car.
