Trump cancels secret meeting with Taliban leaders at Camp David

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

President Donald Trump said he canceled a secret meeting with Taliban officials at Camp David over the weekend after the group claimed responsibility for a terror attack that killed a U.S. serviceman, a Romanian serviceman, and numerous civilians near the U.S. embassy in Kabul.

Breitbart reported that Trump revealed the secret meeting — and the news that it had been canceled — in a series of tweets denouncing the group for its actions.

Peace talks off

Trump also called off peace talks between the Afghans and the Taliban that had almost reached a deal.

“What kind of people would kill so many in order to seemingly strengthen their bargaining position?” Trump tweeted Saturday. “They didn’t, they only made it worse!”

Trump has been trying to broker a deal between the Afghanis and the Taliban to end the fighting so that when the U.S. pulls its troops, there won’t be ongoing problems between them.

“We’ve been a peacekeeper there, in a way, for 19 years and at a certain point, you have to say, ‘That’s long enough,’” Trump said in August.

Afghanistan moving forward

For their part, Afghan leaders signaled approval for Trump’s move and seemed to suggest that they would continue to negotiate with the Taliban on their own, The Washington Post reported.

“We believe President Trump has a proper understanding of the situation and sees that the Taliban are not committed to peace,” said spokesman Sediq Sediqqi. “He understands that the Afghan government and people are concerned for a meaningful and long-lasting peace.”

On Sunday, some prominent Republicans criticized Trump’s willingness to host a meeting with the Taliban on American soil, while others praised him for calling off the talks in response to the Taliban’s aggression.

Meanwhile, Taliban attacks and violence have surged in recent weeks as a deal appeared to be in its final stages, proving once again that you can’t negotiate with terrorists, no matter how much you might want to.
