Trump: Peace Talks with Taliban Are 'Dead'
Wednesday, 11 September 2019 02:16 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

U.S. President Donald Trump is denying he overruled Vice President Mike Pence and other administration officials about hosting the Taliban at Camp David for peace talks.

"I took my own advice," Trump told reporters Monday. "We had a meeting scheduled. It was my idea, and it was my idea to terminate it. I didn't discuss it with anybody else."

The Taliban, according to Trump, "are telling people they made a big mistake" by carrying out an attack last Thursday in Kabul that killed a U.S. Army soldier and 11 other people.

As a result, "as far as I'm concerned, they're dead," Trump said of the discussions with the militants in Afghanistan.

The president also stated that U.S. forces have "hit the Taliban harder in the last four days than they've been in over 10 years."

U.S. news outlets reported that Pence and the administration's national security adviser, John Bolton, internally at the White House voiced objections to holding the meeting at Camp David.
