Afghanistan: Trump pays surprise Thanksgiving visit to US troops

Afghanistan, Bagram Air Base
November 29, 2019 at 03:38 GMT +00:00 · Published

US President Donald Trump made a surprise visit to US troops in Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan on Thursday and said that the Taliban is ready for a deal.

"The Taliban wants to make a deal," Trump said to troops at Bagram Air Base on his first trip to Afghanistan, where he also met with his Afghan counterpart Ashraf Ghani. "And they only want to make a deal because you're doing a great job," added Trump.

"There's nowhere I'd rather celebrate this Thanksgiving than right here with the toughest, strongest, best and bravest warriors on the face of the earth," Trump told the troops.

The US President also touched upon the US economy and the death of the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL) leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, adding that "his second is dead. His third, we have the sights on the third. I think the third doesn't want the job."
