President Trump seemed to catch some U.S. military leaders off guard last Wednesday when he took to Twitter to announce “we should have” all troops in Afghanistan home by Christmas, according to The New York Times.
The paper, citing a senior U.S. military official, reported there was some speculation surrounding the timing of Trump’s announcement. His tweet came hours before the vice presidential debate in Utah and hours after Robert O’Brien, his national security adviser, told an audience at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas that he expected a troop reduction to about 2,500 by early 2021.
“We should have the small remaining number of our BRAVE Men and Women serving in Afghanistan home by Christmas!” Trump tweeted.
TRENDPOST: President Trump’s winding down the Afghan war before Election Day in hopes of gaining votes was long forecast by Gerald Celente.
However, the Afghan war, the longest in American history (going on for nearly 20 years) and despite costing trillions, killing thousands, and ruining the lives of millions, is not an issue in The Presidential Reality Show®.
The war is barely mentioned in the mainstream media and is of no concern among the general public. Thus, Trump’s playing the peace card, once a favorite among so-called liberals and Democrats, will not bring their votes.
