VoicePresident Donald Trump on Monday said that US peace talks with the Taliban are "dead" and that he is ramping the war back up after canceling secret talks with the Afghan insurgents at his weekend retreat.
Trump says Afghanistan peace talks with Taliban are dead
As far as I am concerned, they are dead," Trump said at the White House about the long-running attempt to reach an agreement with the Taliban and extricate US troops following 18 years of war.
The announcement followed Trump's dramatic cancelation of a top-secret plan to fly Taliban leaders in for direct talks at the Camp David presidential facility outside Washington.
