9/11 anniversary: Trump vows to hit Taliban harder than ever
US President Donald Trump has said that he is not talking about nuclear power but enemy never have seen anything like what will happen to them.
While addressing the memorial ceremony of 9/11 attack that killed nearly 3,000 people, he said that an unprecedented escalation of the US military assault on Afghanistan’s Taliban.
Trump said that over the past few days American forces have ‘hit Taliban harder than they have ever been hit before and that will continue.
Trump further added that our enemy thought they would use terrorist attack to show strength to us, but actually they showed us their unabated weakness.
On Saturday 7 September, Trump said that he had planned unprecedented, albeit separate, talks with the two sides Sunday in Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland, but that the Taliban’s persistent, grisly campaign of violence made them untrustworthy partners.
“Unbeknownst to almost everyone, the major Taliban leaders and, separately, the President of Afghanistan, were going to secretly meet with me at Camp David on Sunday,” Trump said in a tweet.
He further wrote “Unfortunately, in order to build false leverage, they admitted to an attack in Kabul that killed one of our great soldiers, and 11 other people. I immediately cancelled the meeting and called off peace negotiations.”
“What kind of people would kill so many in order to seemingly strengthen their bargaining position? They didn’t, they only made it worse!” Trump said.
