Trump: I Could Win Afghan War In 10 Days
Another Trump soundbite is getting a lot of attention and this time it's about the war in Afghanistan that started soon after the 9/11 attacks. During an Oval Office photo op, the president said he could win the war in Afghanistan in 10 days, but the plan would likely kill 10 million people. He said he doesn't want to do that, but that he is ready to negotiate with political leaders in the region.
In the clip posted by NBC News, President Trump is responding to a question from a Pakistani reporter who was previewing his meeting with Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan.
The US military has been fighting the war in Afghanistan for more than 18 years.
