"If there ever were peace talks scheduled. Trump's a liar, so who knows?"
As I understand the situation, there WERE other talks with the Taliban going on but very preliminary.
Then Trump decided to pole vault over the whole thing because he thinks he's a better negotiator than anybody. Of course, Trump's version of "negotiate" is to threaten.
Trump's Taliban Summit was originally scheduled to take place in DC. But at the last minute he changed it to Camp David, a secluded and heavily guarded compound in the woods.
If the Taliban leaders grew suspicious it was probably with good cause. You've heard the phrase, "Welcome to my parlor said the spider to the fly."
