Trump says decision on Afghanistan strategy 'very close'President Donald Trump said Thursday he was “very close” to revealing his keenly awaited decision on the number of US troops he plans to keep in Afghanistan. The White House has launched a review of the US plan for Afghanistan after 16 years of war, and reports suggest that Trump’s national security team is divided on whether to send more troops or to pull out. Trump’s generals have called the Afghan conflict a “stalemate” and even after years of intensive help from the US and other NATO nations, Afghanistan’s security forces are still struggling to hold back an emboldened Taliban.
